Dua Lipa's dashing dad stole the show at the Brit Awards on Wednesday night.

Even host Jack Whitehall couldn't look away from Dukagjin Lipa, admitting that he had a "man crush on him," to which Dua Lipa joked back: "It's getting out of hand."

In a way, it did: Twitter shortly went into a meltdown over the "silver fox," with fawning viewers comparing him to James Bond and asking whether he was single. (He's happily married to Lipa's mom, Anesa, who's just as stunning as the rest of the family.)

Fans even managed to track down his social media accounts, with his Instagram following growing to 180,000 since the awards; one photograph of Dukagjin posing on the red carpet drew a number of admiring comments and heart emojis.

The man Whitehall called "the best-looking dad in the music industry" has even become the subject of multiple memes.

Dua Lipa, 23, is used to people commenting on her parents' good looks. "Boys at school would say your mum's really hot and the girls would say your dad's so fit," she previously told The Guardian. And her recent Instagram post of the family visiting London back in 2004 confirms that her parents were couple goals as much then as now.

Her dad's already well-known in his native Kosovo — he was a rock star in the '80s and last year founded The Sunny Hill Music Festival in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, to try and change the city's prevailing one-dimensional identity as war-torn.

Dua Lipa, who has a close relationship with her father, headlined and posted an Instagram of them both behind the decks at the festival, writing in the caption that they were choosing to donate the 100, 000 euros raised to "charities close to our heart, cultural organizations and music schools in Kosovo."

This was a cause close to the family's heart, for things haven't always looked so bright for the Lipa family: They all lived in Kosovo until the Bosnian war arrived, forcing them to flee to London in 1992 and start their lives and careers again.

Dua Lipa's parents took any work they could to make ends meet. Her mother had been training as a lawyer and her father as a dentist in Pristina, but in London they worked as waiters while Dukagjin attended business school in the evenings and Anesa re-trained in the tourism industry.

Growing up watching their work ethic had a profound impact on Dua Lipa. "My dad would always tell me 'You have to work really, really hard just to have a tiny bit of luck,'" she told the Guardian.
