Derek Theler, known for his role as Danny Wheeler on 'Baby Daddy,' recently opened up to TVRage.com's News Editor, Allyson Koerner, during a conference call. Not only did he talk about his character's complicated love life, but he also discussed why Danny is keeping his feelings to himself...for now.

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

"Not only do viewers of the comedy love seeing Theler walk around shirtless during an episode, but fans tune in to see what will happen with Danny and his love life. The series focuses on the shipping of Danny and Riley (Chelsea Kane), in addition to the romance between Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), Danny’s brother, and Riley. It’s a complicated love triangle that resonates throughout every episode.

So, the big question remains: why hasn’t Danny stepped up and told Riley his true feelings? As Theler told TVRage, during a Friday conference call, “That’s a hard question, because when you look at their history they’ve known each other for so long and they’ve been -- they still are -- best friends, since they were kids. I think it’s just one of those things where he’s scared to lose her in that way.

“He feels like if he really expresses his true feelings for her that their relationship as best friends isn’t going to be the same at all. He’s definitely waiting for the right moment to strike, and it’s hard, because it seems to never want to come.”

'Baby Daddy' airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c on ABC Family.
