Ben Wheeler’s adventures in premature fatherhood are about to come to an end; Baby Daddy‘s current sixth season will be its last, TVLine has confirmed.
The news was revealed by one of the show’s writers on Saturday in a series of emotional Instagram posts, including one below:
The Freeform comedy stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau as Ben, whose life was forever changed when a one-night stand resulted in the birth of a daughter — one he didn’t know existed until she was dropped off on his doorstep. With the “help” of his brother Danny (Derek Theler), roommate Tucker (Tahj Mowry), pal Riley (Chelsea Kane), and mom Bonnie (Melissa Peterman), Ben slowly learned what it means to be a father. Sort of. It’s an ongoing process, really.
And when the series comes to an end on May 22 (8:30/7:30c), Danny will inherit the title of Baby Daddy, as Riley gives birth to a child of their own. (Yeah, my little summary glazed over a whooole lot of drama between Danny, Riley and Ben. Let’s just say everything eventually turned out the way it was always meant to.)
