We love fitness instructor Shaun T. Besides his energy, inspirational workouts and motivational words, he’s also happy to share his personal life with followers.
However, it seems his behavior has not gone down well with everyone.
Shaun, (née Shaun Thompson), married husband Scott Blokker back in 2012. They tried for several years to become parents. In 2017, they finally became dads to twin sons Silas Rhys and Sander Vaughn after 12 earlier attempts with five different surrogates.
Shaun continues to post videos of himself doing workouts and generally “shaking his ass”. This sometimes includes goofing around with his hubby or the occasional butt shot to show off the glutes he’s worked so hard upon. Some have made it known they think he should act that way around his kids, prompting a blunt response on his official Instagram and its 1.2million followers.
“PSA: I’m never gonna stop shaking my ass, I’m never gonna stop showing my ass (even when it doesn’t have the lift), and most importantly – I WILL NEVER AGAIN PRETEND TO BE SOMETHING OTHER THAN MYSELF to appease the morality police! I came out of the closet at 21yrs old AND I’M NEVER GOING BACK IN to hide ANYTHING rainbow🌈”

He posted a caption alongside the statement saying, “I even increased the font size so there aren’t any misunderstandings! ✌🏽I’m not doing it with the people who are morally perfect in 2022!”
3 years ago today we made history as the first same-sex couple to be on the cover of @parentsmagazine. I can’t wait for our boys to be old enough to know how meaningful this was to us as parents and as gay dads. We feel the love from this amazing community & are so grateful.❤️ pic.twitter.com/TWeYZZiskY

On his Instagram stories, Shaun went further, posting a video saying, “Someone in the comments asked, ‘Do people really send you messages about me dancing and shaking my ass?’ Yes, they do! And it’s crazy.
“And one particular comment, I’m like, oh, just because you have kids you’re supposed to stop shaking your ass? Yes, I have kids, bitch, and I have a good ass sex life too! That’s why some of you out here stop having sex … that’s why some of these people be cheating on people. Child, when they go to bed, shut it down!
“Me and Scott have a good old sex life, trust and believe! Our kids see us hug, they see us kiss, they see me shake my rump, they see Scott come up behind me and hug me. Why am I going to hide love?
“We don’t hide nothing,” he said, before clarifying, “except behind–you know–behind closed doors.” We presume he’s talking about bedroom activity staying in the bedroom.
“You all need to like get it together because I am just not in the mood for that, it’s just too much,” he continued.
Whether you’re a fan of his workout or not, kudos to Shaun for reminding people that parents are sexual beings, too – including gay dads. Keep shaking that ass!
P.S. For more info on him and hubby Scott, the couple posted a sweet video toward the end of last year reflecting on their ninth wedding anniversary. You can watch it below.
This guy is unreal. I clicked on one of the Instagram links, he’s showing off his body/butt. Looks amazing and posts this, “Do you know how hard it is for me to gain the courage to take those photos and share them here with the world?” Buddy, it is not difficult for you at all. Don’t pretend to be a victim when you put your private life out there and people have comments. If all he wants to hear are the kudos then make your page private and you can create that perfect echo chamber.
I know nothing about this guy but based on just this article, it sounds like he’s a pretty good dad. Keeping himself happy will help keep his kids happy. Parenthood is hard and too many people feel like they sacrifice their life just to be a parent, which causes issues for/with the kids. Kids are always first and foremost, but parents need to keep their life healthy too.
I’d imagine the haters for him “shaking his ass” are the same people who are certain that two gay men raising kids will surely cause the kids to be gay also. I’d much rather have kids being raised with the truth in front of them than by uptight judgmental parents.
I completely support the being gay dads, the being body-confident and unrepressed about sexuality, the telling the morality police to F off. What I don’t support is the constant gurl-speak, where every sentence is punctuated with a snap and a swish, even in the written form. It’s exhausting, it’s fake and THAT’s what I hope they don’t do in front of the kids.
I hope you never reproduce or raise kids. Ignorant pressed dusty queen you are.
Geez! When I was growing up, my mom would walk around the upstairs totally naked and think nothing of showing herself to (purportedly) a straight son; and my mom was a teacher and a good ol’ church-going woman (this was in the 50s and 60s). So what’s so bad about Shaun and Scott doing the same thing; heaven knows when those kids get in the showers in JR high and High School they’ll be ahead of the game.
Most middle school showers are now used as storage closets because no one uses them anymore. Just a spray of Axe and back to class.
These two can do whatever the feck they want. And when they do more power to them. But having designer babies just because they can and want to is where the line is drawn. You want kids, ADOPT FOR GOODNESS SAKES. Lord knows, we have so many that need adopting. But, NAH! You gotta have them designer kids to match your designer bags. Whoring women out like their storage units or something. DISGUSTING!!!!
Having your own biological kids does not make them “designer babies.” Not everyone wants to adopt and that should be okay. You have no right to go after people who have made their own choice. Adopt if you want but leave those who choose another way to have a family alone.
This is such an ignorant comment. Do you have any idea how incredibly difficult it is for single men or gay male couples to adopt? Do you know what it entails and the amount of waiting it takes to merely be placed on a wait list? You also know nothing about surrogacy, if you did, you would know these women willingly, and happily bring these beautiful babies into the world. Everyone involved becomes a family.
12 rounds of IVF and surrogacy?! How the hell much must he charge for fitness instruction?
