CAST OF “BABY DADDY” TO CHAT LIVE WITH FANS VIA TWITTER DURING TONIGHT’S SUMMER FINALE SEPTEMBER 4 ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (September 4, 2013) – The cast of ABC Family’s hilarious original comedy series “Baby Daddy” will participate in a live Twitter chat with fans during the East Coast broadcast of the show’s summer finale tonight, Wednesday, September 4th from 8:30 – 9:00 p.m. ET / 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. PT.
To join the conversation, fans should tweet at the casts’ handles directly and include the hashtag #BabyDaddyChat in their tweets. In the “Baby Daddy” summer finale episode titled “Surprise!” Ben learns why Riley doesn’t like celebrating her birthday and it’s all his fault. He knows he needs to make it up to her and plans a perfect birthday surprise, but in typical Ben Wheeler fashion, disaster ensues. Bonnie realizes she may have made a mistake in filing Emma’s parental rights paperwork and Ben doesn’t officially have sole custody. Bonnie enlists Tucker’s help in tracking down Emma’s mother, Angela (played by Mimi Gianopulos), to re-sign the papers, but bringing this baby mama back into their lives may spell trouble. Meanwhile, Amy (played by Lacey Chabert) calls Danny on his lingering feelings for Riley. The episode was written by “Baby Daddy” Creator and Executive Producer Dan Berendsen.

“Baby Daddy” follows Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), a young man in his early 20s living the life of a bachelor as a bartender in New York City with his buddy, Tucker (Tahj Mowry) and his brother, Danny (Derek Theler), a professional hockey player. Their lives are turned upside down when they come home one day to find a baby girl left on the doorstep by an ex-girlfriend of Ben’s. After much deliberation, Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his friends and his protective and sometimes over-bearing mother, Bonnie (Melissa Peterman), and his close female friend, Riley (Chelsea Kane), who has had a secret crush on him since childhood. Riley is hopeful that Ben will finally take notice, but she doesn’t realize that Ben’s brother, Danny, is harboring a secret crush on her.
