Question: Have you been acquainted with Justin Baldoni from Jane the Virgin? If not, you needed to do so, like, yesterday. But have you had your coffee and/or valium yet this morning? Because this guy will give you so many single-girl goals and I’m just not sure that you’re ready for them all.
OK, here it goes. Justin is a 32-year-old who’s a super talented actor stealing hearts left and right on Jane, and using his platform to create the life-altering, moving series My Last Days on The CW. His looks are also something. And they speak for themselves.
But good-looking, successful, young actors like Justin are few and far between. Why? Because when he could be basking in the glory of young fame and living a playboy lifestyle, he’s spending 24 hours of the day showering his wife Emily and daughter Maiya with love and praise on social media. Can you believe it?
Not all guys are assholes.
Look, there’s this:
Need I go on?
It’s clear his wife is his whole universe. My cousin and I, peak hopeful/bitter/single girls, will exchange his Instagram posts and just cry on the inside together. Regularly. And seeing them together in person? He adores her. (I also met Emily, who’s that warm, down-to-earth chick you instantly want to be friends with.) Them two together, I just can’t.
So when I met Justin, I wanted to know how he knew his wife, who he’s been with for five years and married to for three, was the one. And the actor, who practices the Bahá’í Faith, wears his heart on sleeve possibly more than any other man in the history of men. He’s present, is who he is, and doesn’t let the valueless gender complex of the “tough guy” exterior get in the way of that.
So guys, take note. Maybe if you were a little less concerned with, I don’t know, being a fuckboy, you’d actually land the hot girl of your dreams and live a fulfilling life. Just saying.
And ladies: There’s hope. For the road…
