NEW ORLEANS, LA (WGNO) -- First, Mattel announced it was creating a new, more diverse line of Barbie dolls, reflected a wider array of hair styles, skin tones and body types.

Now, Barbie's beau Ken is following suit.  A U.K. fashion site called Lyst created an entire line of mock Ken dolls.

You have the six-pack-free "Beach Dad-Bod."  There's "Balding Ken," with a receding hairline.  "Hipster Ken" even has a beard, glasses and tattoo.  There are also African-American, Asian and shorter dolls.

The creators say, not every man has a six-pack or full head of hair.

There's no word if Mattel may give the real Ken a makeover, but the company says it does plan to give both Barbie and Ken new career options down the road.
