Baby Daddy’s Derek Theler ‘Embarrassed’ About His Physique


As far as humble-brags go, this one takes the flour-less cake. Derek Theler, the comedic relief on ABC Family’s ‘Baby Daddy’ and object of lust for those with eyes, confessed to Men’s Fitness that, though he is no stranger to shirtlessness, be it on TV or IG, he is a bit embarrassed by how often he shows off his Greek physique:

Part of your success on Baby Daddy may have to do with your physique…

That is absolutely what I’m known for, and I think it’s in my contract that I have to have my shirt off every other episode. It’s funny because I actually am kind of embarrassed about it, but when I do come out of the bathroom wearing a towel for no reason (laughs) I try not to put it out there, but I work hard on looking as good as I can, and I’m young, so it’s something I guess I should be proud of.

For a look back at some of Theler’s more memorable social media moments sans shirt click HERE and HERE.

    It doesn’t seem like he’s embarrassed about his physique, more about having to show it off.

    As an actor, I would think he would want to be known as having acting skills… but if it pays the bills and leads to other roles, then great for him.

    I’ve never seen the show. I have no desire… but his body is nice to look at.

    I Googled him: started typing in his name and “shirtless” popped up before I got halfway through his last name. Gotta have a gimmick!

    Sometimes Towleroad is like looking at someone else’s dirty pics blog on Tumblr–too little news, too much pathological obsession.
