There is a whole lot of fate and more than a little Christmas magic in Baby Daddy‘s all-new holiday episode!

In “It’s A Wonderful Emma,” Ben channels his inner Scrooge as he detests everything that has to do with the holiday season – the shopping, the crowds, the tree trimming, even the pageant at Emma’s daycare. Adding to his bad mood are Bonnie, Riley, Danny and Tucker, who are overflowing with cheer until Ben can’t take it anymore and wishes there was no such thing as Christmas. But when his wish comes true and the holiday vanishes, he unwittingly erases Emma’s existence and alters the course of everyone’s lives. Can Ben get his loved ones to believe in Christmas and bring Emma back before it’s too late?

CelebSecrets4U caught up with Tahj Mowry, who plays Tucker on the ABC Family comedy series. In the interview, Tahj talks about his role in the Christmas special, what it was like filming a holiday episode in the middle of the summer, and his goals for 2015.

Make sure to tune in to the Baby Daddy Christmas special TONIGHT @ 8:30PM ET/PT on ABC Family!

What can you tell us about Tucker’s role in the Baby Daddy Christmas Special?

Tahj: “Tucker has a really cool role in the Christmas special, actually!  First of all, it’s like an It’s a Wonderful Life theme, and Ben is over Christmas –Danny and Tucker are responsible for getting the tree.  Tucker has a very hilarious scene getting the tree that will probably be the next gif online.  It’s very funny, and we also get to hear Tucker sing, because there’s sort of a Wheeler family band scene in this episode.  It’s just a great episode altogether.  I think people will love it!”

What was it like filming the Christmas episode in the summer?

Tahj: “That was actually really interesting because there’s a really funny scene with me getting the Christmas tree. We filmed that scene outside and I’m bundled up in gloves, a scarf and one of those fluffy hats but it was just so hot outside!”

Do you have any New Year’s plans or goals for 2015?

Tahj: “I’m about to come out with my music in 2015, so that’s probably my biggest excitement. Also, Baby Daddy’s Season 4 premieres on January 14 — so it’s going to be a really fun year for me! I’m looking forward to a positive and fruitful year.”
