The Nanny Poppins Agency can staff virtually anyone working in your private home, home office, and/or estate, but we started off almost 30 years ago by staffing one role- Nanny. So we know, maybe better than anyone, how popular the “Manny” role has been getting! So popular in fact, that even our founding owner, Jennifer, has employed a few. 

So what is a “manny”? It’s a pretty simple answer, but a manny is a male nanny. Before we saw a rise of client requests for a manny, we saw them begin to appear in pop culture! Winston Bishop, a main character played by Lamorne Morris on FOX’s New Girl from 2011-2018, was employed as a manny in season one for Schmidt’s employer. Adam DeVine played Andy Bailey, a manny employed by Jay & Gloria on ABC’s Modern Family from 2013-2018. Idris Elba played a character named Charlie who becomes a reluctant Manny in Netflix’s “Turn Up Charlie”. Kim Kardashian recently revealed that she hired a Manny specifically for her son, Saint.

Why would someone choose to hire a “manny” over a “nanny”? We know the nanny industry is largely female dominated, much like nursing. Families who seek out a manny may be looking for a male childcare provider for their children for a number of reasons. Single mothers often see this as an opportunity to provide not only reliable childcare but a positive male role model. Maybe a client’s child had a wonderful experience with a male teacher or camp counselor, and wants to continue that experience at home. Sometimes, we present a male candidate to a family looking for a nanny and this candidate happens to be the best fit for their household dynamic, regardless of gender.
