DESCRIPTION: (from ABC Family's press release, March 2013) ABC Family today announced the network has green-lit a third season of its hit original comedy series, "Baby Daddy." The order came just as production wrapped on the second season of the series, which premieres on ABC Family, Wednesday, May 29, from 8:30-9:00 p.m., ET/PT, after an all-new episode of comedy "Melissa & Joey." "Baby Daddy," the #1 comedy series in ABC Family history, follows Ben (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 (Mowry), and his brother, Danny (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 (Peterman), and his close female friend, Riley (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.
