Trans actress Michelle Hendley shines in her debut role in this charming romantic comedy about a love triangle involving a small town Kentucky trans girl. Actor and comedian Alec Mapa attended opening night. Mapa who is widely known for his role as fashion-critic extraordinaire on the T.V. series UGLY BETTY, was among those in the crowd promoting his new film Baby Daddy.
Baby Daddy is a comedy-documentary based on about Alec and his husband’s journey as adoptive parents through the LA County foster care system. The Mapa’s adopt a five year old African American child from Compton that highlights the true definition of a diverse family.
