First came the six-pack, then it was the dad bod, now the must-have body to have is the “wealth belly.”
The term, coined by MMA fighter Conor McGregor (of course it was), has yet to receive an official definition but judging by his Instagram account it looks a little something like this:
If you’re still a little confused as to exactly what the wealth belly looks like (you’re not alone), the internet has gone some way to explaining exactly what Conor means. “A softly rounded body type built on the theory that the subject enjoys a full life of luxury, consisting of good food and good wine which subsequently leads to an all-round good time that is wholly predetermined on the basis of great wealth,” claims Business Insider. In other words, it’s a rich man’s dad bod.
McGregor was named the 24th highest paid athlete in the world by Forbes earlier this year, making £21m in the last year. That figure and chart ranking will likely increase following his mega money-spinning fight with Floyd Mayweather last month. If his Instagram account is anything to go by, he’s certainly enjoying the depths of his newfound riches.
