Guardians of the Galaxy and The Jurassic World franchise star, Chris Pratt has turned the spotlight onto him. Recently, pictures of a bare-chested Chris on a vacation with his girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger surfaced, which has sent social media in a tizzy.
The world just can’t keep calm anymore. However, as predictable as social media can get sometimes, twitter went abuzz with reactions.
Apparently, the term, ‘Dad Bod’ refers to the body of a middle aged man, and is widely celebrated as a unique physical state. Many speculations have been made as to why women in general rave about dad-bods.
According to ‘The Odyssey Online’ women like Dad-Bods because it says, “I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.” It’s not an overweight guy, but it isn’t one with washboard abs, either.
An even shadier reason being, ‘we just like being the prettier one’. Another very sensible reason could be that women love knowing what they’re getting into.

If the man has a dad-bod albeit temporarily at 24, the woman knows what she can expect when he hits 45. Or maybe it’s just the comfort zone, or what we call ‘Bliss Point’ for the ladies.
Dad-Bods gone viral
The dad-bod went viral, with the Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio flaunting his fit-yet-relaxed looking tummy effortlessly, by the beachside. You can catch a bit of that awesomeness in ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street‘ folks. In fact, a few years back, according to a source for Page Six, DiCaprio was overheard bragging about it to some models.
Leo was apparently drinking his beer and boasting to the girls about how he just doesn’t work out. The ladies apparently didn’t take his boasting well, the world on the other hand went raving mad over Leo’s Dad-Bod.
Its not just Leo, but also stars like, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Vince Vaughn and Seth Rogen. However, the world seems a bit divided between Leo and Chris , over the ultimate dad-bod.
Trouble with the exes?
Chris Pratt was in the spotlight earlier for his split with his wife Anna Faris, who’s a hit comedian and actress. The couple have a son, Jack Pratt. Rumors are that Anna Faris wasn’t impressed in the least bit with 39 year old Chris’ new love interest, Katherine, 28.
She feels as though it is insensitive on Katherine and Chris’ part to be so public about their romance, not thinking for even a moment about how it would affect her and the family. Sources say that communication has gone ice cold between the exes due to this. The hit comedian even put up her $2.5 million worth home for sale to try and get past her failed marriage.
We can only imagine what she’s going through right now. Hopefully, Faris finds solace soon. Anna has low key begun dating cinematographer , Michael Barrett, 48. The duo have been seen arm in arm at various places.
The inside source however worries about the state of young Jack Pratt. Given the cold war between mum and dad, the source said
You’ve got to feel for their son Jack seeing his parents acting this way, In the beginning, this split was cordial, but now it’s getting pretty bitter, pretty quickly!An Inside Source to Radar
With Chris flaunting his rave look and eye-catching love life, it is understandable how it can be tough for his ex. Given that the split was a recent event, hopefully the two see better days between them soon.
