I admit, during the first season of Baby Daddy, I didn’t think the show would last. The name of the show didn’t stick, I think it initially rubbed me the wrong way. Still, I gave the show a chance and I’m glad I did! I love romance and comedy! Don’t get me wrong, I loved the characters and humor when it first premiered and I still do! Now, Baby Daddy is one of my favorite shows!

We were treated to the Spring Premiere Episode of Baby Daddy, Season 6: To Elle and Back. The premiere starts about 3 months after the finale. Bonnie is determined to be near when Danny and Riley’s baby is born because she missed the birth of Emma.

We find Tucker back from Los Angeles, however, he refuses to tell anyone why, however, he does confide in Emma. His story line is a huge mystery and I am curious to see what happened. I hope he can bounce back and find the perfect job that makes him happy. The cast did tease about Tucker’s storyline and a possible romance?!

Lastly, Ben is frantically searching for his dream girl that he’s run into a few times by accident. They have even crossed paths without knowing it.

We interviewed Chelsea Kane (“Riley Perrin”), Derek Theler (“Danny Wheeler”) and Tahj Mowry (“Tucker Dobbs”). Check out what they had to say:

 

Question: What can we expect besides pregnancy in season 6?

Chelsea Kane: Yeah, that was a big one for me. I mean it was so fun to be in the ballet the whole time but I think it’s a big season for us. For anyone that’s been sticking with us these last one hundred episodes. I mean to find, I think a lot of storylines that were there from, you know, the pilot, are really wrapping up this season in such a beautiful way. So, I think the fans will enjoy it checking it out.

Tahj Mowry: Yeah. Yeah and I think we kind of dive a little bit deeper into each character. For Tucker, specifically, we find out a little bit more about him and his in a different space mentally than he normally is. He’s not his upbeat self.

Derek Theler: Yeah, Danny, he’s trying to handle his pregnant girlfriend, which is challenge enough for most people especially Danny. And then Ben is kind of searching still for his love that he happened to cross at the end of the last season.

Chelsea Kane: Well, yeah, Brad’s in prison. Brad goes to jail and I’m defending him. So, that’s also a big storyline for Riley this year, is, not only is she hormonal and trying to hide her pregnancy, which I also think is, you know, a hot button issue. She is worried that once her boss finds out that she is pregnant that she’s just gonna look like one giant case of maternity leave. So, she’s trying to hide her pregnancy and on top of that defend Mrs. Wheeler’s husband in court. So, she’s kind of an emotional train wreck for most of the season.

 

Question: Do you have any input with what happens with the show?

Chelsea Kane: Well, we always kind of make the joke now that the lines between our characters and our real selves have been completely blurred at this point. We’ve been so lucky to have pretty much the same set of writers all six seasons and we’re really good friends with them too. So, after the show on Friday night, we all go into the bar to celebrate or having dinner with each other over the hiatus and often times we’ll come in on Monday morning, or having lunch with the writers and the crew. Telling some wild story that happened and sure enough, two weeks later, it’s in the show.

So, that I guess we input in that way by default. They’re very generous with letting us improv. Of course, working with Melissa Peterman, who’s kind of the queen of improv.
Derek Theler: The queen of taking whatever she wants.

Chelsea Kane: But usually on Friday nights when we’re shooting in front of the live audience, once we get it one time the way it is on the page, we kind of cut Melissa loose and then it’s like everybody just brace yourself.

 

Question: What’s something that you wanna see your characters do before the show eventually, hopefully in a long time ends? Obviously give birth.

Chelsea Kane: Yeah, the happens, guys that does happen.

Derek Theler: We see the baby.

Chelsea Kane: So, that was something that I definitely wanted this season, once we established that Riley was pregnant. I wanted to see it through and not leave it on a cliffhanger. So, you do get to meet our baby and yeah and that was a really emotional day on set.

Derek Theler: It was a super emotional scene for sure. And we had a thirteen-day old baby.

Chelsea Kane: Which was the scariest thing ever. The head thing and I was like oh god, so those were real just tears because I was so nervous. But that was something I definitely wanted to see happen.

Tahj Mowry: For Tucker, a lot of people are always like when’s he gonna fall in love. When is he gonna meet that girl and this season that might happen. So, that’s something cool. I think fans are really like that.

Derek Theler: For my character, I was hoping that Danny would tie the knot with Riley. So, that’s something that I’m hoping for in the future.

Chelsea Kane: I love the relationship with Bonnie and Riley. It’s that great mother-in-law, she’s so hard on her. And Melissa and I have talked since season one, of really wanting to have that breakthrough, where she’s, the reason she’s so hard on her is because she really loves her. So, that was something that Melissa and I got to have this year.

Tahj Mowry: And I think that what’s so special about this season.

Chelsea Kane: The stuff we’ve always talked about wanting to do, we finally decided to.

Tahj Mowry: I’m not just saying this, I think it’s the funniest season we’ve done. It’s also like the most grounded I feel.

 

After the screening and interviews, we enjoyed a Baby Shower lunch with the cast as well! Chelsea Kane, Derek Theler and Tahj Mowry sat at each of our tables! They all seemed down to earth and incredibly friendly. Chelsea sat my table and she was so sweet and genuine!

Baby Daddy Cast Plays Charades

After lunch, we played a game of charades. Does it look like we had fun?! What I found enduring is that Chelsea was super nervous and insecure about her ability to play charades! She is a famous actress. She’s played other roles! Regardless, she did an awesome job!

Baby Daddy premieres Monday, March 13th at 8:30 pm EST on Freeform.

You can find Baby Daddy on their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
