Currently, you can catch some dads in Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is five episodes deep on Disney+. From Leia’s adoptive father Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits) to Luke’s uncle Owen (Joel Edgerton), there are plenty of pops to honor in the show. Vader (Hayden Christensen) may not know he’s a dad yet, but he’s also thriving in the series. During a recent interview with Fatherly, Christensen talked about being a dad and preparing for the role by preparing his “Vader body.”

“I think that process was very important for me,” Christensen explained. “I needed to become that character again, physically. I just consumed as many calories as possible. I put on 25 or 30 pounds to fill out that [Darth Vader] suit.” Christensen explained that the process took about nine months, but he chose not to maintain his Vader bod after the production was over. “I try to avoid the dad bod thing,” he explained with a chuckle. “And I was trying to maintain that Vader body after we finished. But, honestly, I pretty much just went back to my old diet. I kind of deflated after that.”
