ICYMI: Women Prefer Your "Dad Bod"

Father's Day is this weekend, and I just read about a study that'll definitely give your ego a bit of a boost. Apparently those extra lbs you've put on since becoming a dad are actually sexier than you think...

According to a new survey, 69% of women think a "dad bod" is sexy. If that isn't good news enough, 63% of the women in the study actually PREFER a dad bod over a guy who's in crazy good shape.

In case you were wondering, the study defined "dad bod" as, quote, "relatively fit, but neither lean nor muscular." So not TOO chubby, but also not ripped or even toned at all.

Here are a few more stats from the study...

1. 78% of women think a dad bod is a sign that a guy's comfortable in his own skin.

2. 47% of women agreed the "dad bod" is the new six-pack. So a little extra padding is in style right now.

3. 80% of women said they'd be proud to be married to a guy with a dad bod.

4. 92% of married men with a dad bod said they're HAPPY with their marriage. 86% are happy with their life in general. And 61% said they're proud of their body.
