Hands up if you’ve packed on a few kilos while shut away in lockdown? Well, you’re not alone. Some of Tinseltown’s biggest stars are now rocking dad bods instead of ripped physiques.

A dad bod is a term used to describe a male body that’s not as honed as it could be, that won’t say no to take-out and likes a beer or five. The quintessential “before” picture in other words!

And it’s not necessarily all bad! According to The Sun, a poll by Planet Fitness found that nearly four in five men and women think a dad bod is a sign of a man confident in his own skin.

In the same poll, 65 per cent said dad bods are attractive, while 61 per cent said dad bods are sexy.

Check out some of your favourite Hollywood heartthrobs rocking their homely dad bods.

Channing Tatum

He had us hooked from the minute he popped up in Step Up and took us on a shirtless journey all the way to Magic Mike. But Channing has recently been sporting a more family-friendly physique, that has any of his fans drooling.

Zac Efron

The former High School Musical star has been working hard on his body since his Disney departure and kept his female fan’s tongues lolling with his steamy shirtless snaps.

But in his most recent project, Down to Earth, he revealed his new more relaxed (yet still gorgeous) physical form which has many thirsting after his fuller dad bod.

Bradley Cooper

Bradley stole our hearts after taking us on a heartrending journey in A Star Is Born. Although he has no Instagram account, many fan accounts have showcased his top tier dad bod - and it’s made for the beach.

Chris Pratt

He never takes himself too seriously, which is why he’s incredibly loveable already but pair that with an overall toned dad bod and you’ve got a winning combination.

Adam Devine

This funnyman crept into our hearts with his roles in Pitch Perfect and a recurring role on Modern Family, but who would have thought that his adorable body would keep him there?
