ABC FAMILY CASTS LACEY CHABERT AND GRACE PHIPPS TO GUEST STAR IN NEW EPISODES OF ORIGINAL SERIES "BABY DADDY"
Burbank, CA (December 19, 2012) - ABC Family has cast Lacey Chabert ("Mean Girls," "Party of Five") and Grace Phipps ("The Nine Lives of Chloe King," "Teen Beach Musical") to guest star on original comedy series "Baby Daddy," which will return with new episodes in Spring 2013.
Chabert will guest star in two episodes as Dr. Amy Shaw, a sports psychologist who begins working with Danny (Derek Theler) when he experiences a hockey slump. Before long, Danny decides he would rather pursue a romantic relationship with Amy, rather than a professional one.
Phipps will portray Megan, the assistant manager of a neighborhood daycare who catches Ben's (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) eye when he tries to drop off Emma. Though Megan is initially not interested with Ben, believing he and Tucker (Tahj Mowry) to be a couple, he soon changes her mind. Phipps is currently set for two episodes, with the possibility of more.
The series stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau ("Kyle XY"), Derek Theler ("90210"), Tahj Mowry ("The Game") with Melissa Peterman ("Reba") and Chelsea Kane ("Dancing with the Stars," "Jonas LA"). "Baby Daddy" is created and executive produced by Dan Berendsen ("The Nine Lives of Chloe King," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" and "Hannah Montana: The Movie"). "Baby Daddy" is a multi-camera comedy that shoots in front of a live studio audience in Los Angeles.
