It’s official: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive!

The Baywatch star joins an impressive group of dapper dudes who’ve left us swooning at one time or another — and he totally fits the bill.

Aside from conquering the entertainment industry with his undeniable charisma and jaw-dropping physique, the wrestler-turned-action-star has welcomed fans into his personal and professional life — both at home with his family, at the gym and behind-the-scenes on film sets — on social media, proving through it all that he might just also be the most perfect man alive.

Here, a list of reasons why he should be your latest crush/imaginary boyfriend.

He treats his fans like family.

And is all for cuddling with babies.

He regularly visits sick kids at the hospital.

“I have the best fans in the world,” he’s known to say.

He would do anything to make his youngest daughter, Jasmine, smile.

Even if that means getting all sweaty after wearing a Pikachu costume.

He’s a pro at snapping group selfies.

It’s the reason for all those bicep curls, obvi.

He’s a beast at the gym.

Johnson is the literal embodiment of “work hard, play hard.”

And is still a good sport about posing for pics, post-workout.

The ultimate sign of a true hero.

His friendship with Kevin Hart gives us all the feels.

The pair worked together on Central Intelligence and are returning to the big screen in Jumanji.

He’s a dog person …

And is an avid advocate of adoption.

… but doesn’t discriminate against other animals.

The look of love.

He enjoys his sweets.

Especially if they’re handmade and super-decadent like this chocolate chip cookie, inspired by the star himself.

He believes in breakfast for dinner.

A late-night batch of chocolate chip pancakes? Yes, please!

He looks damn good in a suit.

No comment necessary.

His throwback style is iconic.

Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum are fans.

He’s strong enough to carry the heaviest of bags.

Just imagine how much faster it would be to walk through the airport if The Rock were traveling with you.

He loves his mom.

And isn’t that what makes a man?

He’s not above poking fun at himself.

“Ah remembering the faces of all my high school girlfriends’ parents meeting me for the first time,” he joked on Instagram.
