Moreover, the star revealed the gender of his upcoming baby as a boy.

Weight Loss Issue

In the series, This Is Us (2016), Chris plays the prominent role of the character, Toby Damon. Until season three, the audience saw Toby's appearance as quite bulky with some weight issues. And, in season four of the show, his character went through a dramatic weight loss through workout and exercises.

Interestingly, many fans took it for granted that the performer had some considerable weight issues in reality as well. But this wasn't the case, and Chris actually wore a prosthetic suit to appear bulkier. As a result, many fans were outraged and expressed their anger through social media platforms such as Twitter.

However, the actor came to his defense in October 2017 during an interview at Watch What Happens Live With Andy:

I think one, that the show is just too good, they had to find something wrong with it. Two, I can understand why people feel fooled by things they see on TV. Three, I feel like we're currently living in a culture where the outrage is a bit of a hobby for some people, and, if they're not outraged about something, they're totally bored.

Even his co-star, Chrissy Metz, fended the decision by citing that Chris "understands the plight of being overweight."
