Baby Daddy turns the tables on traditional gender roles by casting a father as the one who redesigns his life to accommodate an unexpected baby and reaps the emotional benefits from the connection to his daughter. With Ben's support system pitching in to help, the show reflects the changing picture of modern families and the importance of having a "village." Although there are references to casual relationships in the characters' pasts, it's obvious that they're searching for meaningful, lasting connections for their futures as well as for Emma's. On the downside, the show does sanitize the financial and emotional struggles of single parenting.
Some friendly roughhousing (pinching, slapping, etc.) between adults, plus rink brawls during scenes at hockey games.
Suggestive undertones to dialogue, especially in reference to the short-lived relationship that resulted in baby Emma. There's a lot of flirting, some kissing, and implications of sex (it's assumed that a girlfriend spent the night at a guy's apartment, for instance), but very little in the way of physical contact.
"Ass," "damn," "swear to God," and "crap," plus body references like "boobs." Ben and Danny often refer to Riley as their childhood nickname for her, "Fatpants."
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol is frequently present at meals and in social settings, but adults don't overindulge.
