EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — We've seen Barbie go from skinny mini to preggy Betty and everything in between — but what about Ken?

Well we don't see this often but Mattel, the makers of Barbie, has revamped her beau.

But It's not just any revamp.

Ken's got a couple of new looks that Mattel is labeling "diverse."

Barbie's new man comes with cornrows, a man bun, and specs.

You'll also notice these different dolls have different skin tones and body types. From broader shoulders to a dad bod, Mattel wanted to incorporate the variety to keep up with today's kids and trends.

Ken has come a long way since his debut back in 1961.

But if the Barbs like it, then we love it!
