We’ll say it — Derek Theler would win every single wet t-shirt contest he would ever enter.
The 28-year-old Baby Daddy actor got soaked in a pool for the new January 2015 issue of Bello mag and opened up about the show, what would’ve happened if he’d stayed in the medical profession and more. Check it:
On what his life would be without acting: “It would’ve been very different. There’s a big need for health professionals today. The baby-boomers of America are getting a lot older and medicine’s a big deal. But still, my life would be immeasurably contrasting, I suppose. I’d probably be living in Colorado, working at a physical therapy clinic, if not as a doctor in a hospital.”
On having and living with Type 1 Diabetes: “It’s a constant responsibility when you’re a type 1 diabetic. You can’t drink too much. You have to be very strict when it comes to your eating habits and checking your blood sugar and taking your insulin. The last thing I want is to have 100 people on set waiting on me to get my blood sugar back to the right spot. I worked this past summer in Africa, where I had the best time of my life and for a full week I was working in the water. My insulin pump, which was my main source of regulating my blood sugar, can’t be submerged under water. So, it was a big challenge for me. But I was set, [and] luckily no one on the crew was waiting for me to be prepared for my scene.”
