Slide over, Justin Bieber. We’re making room for a new JB in our lives! He goes by the name of Jean-Luc Bilodeau, and not only does he share initials with the teen sensation — he’s Canadian, too! Jean-Luc (swoon) will be starring in the all-new ABC Family comedy Baby Daddy about a young guy (Ben) living it up when he finds a baby left on his doorstep courtesy of a
crazy ex-girlfriend who is convinced he is the father.
Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his family, his best friend (Tahj Mowry. Yes, Teddy from Full House) and his close friend, played by Chelsea Kane, who has a secret crush on Ben but who can help the girl?! Find out more about how Jean-Luc caught the acting bug, what he likes to do in his free time, and what major star he’ll be in a movie with next!
1. Jean-Luc was born in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada a small town right outside of Canada’s mega-city Vancouver.
