Contrary to the name, though, you don’t have to be a dad to possess the body of one.

The name derived from people trying to explain the middle ground between a muscular physique and an overweight one.

The research also found that men felt under pressure to look a certain way.

Opting for more of a realistic view of what men’s bodies look like, men said they’d rather see less ripped men with rounded stomaches and love handles.

The poll asked 1,005 men from aged 16-55+ about their body image and whether it’s positive or negative.

In the summer months, there’s a huge spike in searches online for ‘Dad bod’ according to Scribbler.

In fact, since last year the term has seen a whopping 45 per cent rise in searches.

Long live the dad bod!
