Model Shawn Newman hails from Philly and he makes sexy look easy. He wants to be best friends with his woman, he can cook a mean breakfast and calls Barack Obama his role model. Need we say more?
Los Angeles resident Newman is enjoying the left coast for now, but the East Coast will always have his heart. He grew up in Philadelphia, the city of Brotherly Love. “I love Philly because it made me who I am today,” he tells us. “My grandparents’ support was one of the things I loved most about my childhood there.”
Newman is a certified AFAA Personal Trainer, so he’s in the gym daily training his clients. It keeps him fit and looking good. “As far as working out myself,” he says. “I’m an all or nothing type of man.”
“I‘ve been blessed,” says Newman. “I’ve had the opportunity to be on billboards all over the world from Times Square to my own Philadelphia neighborhood. I’ve even walked on runways for multiple fashion shows in New York City and starred in national commercials.”
Sexy heartthrob Newman enjoys playing basketball, football, pool, dice and the occasional card game. “Pretty much any active competitive game or sport I’m into,” he says. “I love to swim and travel too.”
Newman has very eclectic musical taste. “I’m weird,” he tells us. “I listen to Soundscapes Radio (Ocean, Forrest, and Jungle Music) in the morning, Jay-Z in the afternoon, Chief Keef & Meek Mill in the club, The Weeknd on late nights and Sade to go to sleep.”
