Justin Trudeau’s popularity as a world leader is well-documented
So is the Canadian PM’s dazzling smile. Plus his perfect, perfect hair.
But mostly, he’s famous for his progressive views
The Liberal Party leader is a fierce protector of LGBTI and women’s rights. He is also wonderfully welcoming to immigrants and refugees.
His handsome face brightened up the news again this week
And not simply because he has sparkly blue eyes.
His first visit to Trump’s White House was always going to be big news
But few could have predicted it would be so meme-friendly…

His unimpressed expression when Trump went in for a handshake went viral
And summed up the way many feel about the orange one

But it was Trump’s ‘swooning’ daughter Ivanka that inspired this feature
To be fair, Ivanka, we totally get it
Get you someone that looks at you the way Ivanka Trump looks at Justin Trudeau pic.twitter.com/sxTAlpi4av

So without further ado, here are 12 reasons JT would make the perfect husband. Whoever said politics was boring?
He can balance babies on one hand

We repeat: he can balance babies on one hand.
Justin Trudeau, he thinks the baby will balance itself!? He’s just not ready. pic.twitter.com/O5C37QPdq3

We can’t even.
He looks like a Disney Prince
Justin Trudeau is Prince Eric. This is not up for debate. pic.twitter.com/cj4m0dbB67

We don’t want to make this too much about Justin’s looks (we did a feature on the pitfalls of fetishizing straight guys only yesterday).
— Sarah Marlowe (@SarahMarlowe25) February 4, 2017
But there’s simply no denying Justin is a ridiculously good looking guy of the Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid variety.
He loves Pride
There aren’t many straight guys we’d let take center stage at Pride, but Justin’s one of them.
And he’s big on LGBTI rights, generally
— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) May 16, 2016
He’s called the ‘Prime Minister of homosexuals’ by homophobes. We couldn’t be happier about that. Also, trans rights are on his mind. Last year, he announced legislation protecting trans people from hate speech and discrimination.
Today, on the Transgender Day of Visibility, we celebrate the lives & achievements of trans* people in Canada and around the world. #TDOV
— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) March 31, 2016
Then, last month, he spoke on trans inmates serving sentences in prisons based on their gender identity. ’I’ll make sure we look at it and we address it and we do right in recognizing that trans rights are human rights and we need to make sure we are defending everyone’s dignity and rights in every way we can,’ he said.
He was born on Christmas Day
So, obviously he’s super special.
The following quote
‘Diversity is the engine of invention. It generates creativity that enriches the world.’ Also, this one’s pretty cool: ‘We shouldn’t be afraid of the word feminist. Men and women should use it to describe themselves.’
He looks great in a rugby kit
He once kissed a guy on live TV
He’s an amazing dad
Justin and his gorgeous wife Sophie have been married since 2005 and they are parents to three equally gorgeous kids.
They are Xavier, 9, Ella-Grace Margaret, 8 and also Hadrien, 2. Justin and Sophie set a glowing example to heterosexual parents everywhere by proudly taking their children along with them to Vancouver Pride last year.
He can do this
Trump: I’ve got a great handshake
Trump: you don’t understand. My handshake is wow

Pandas love him
Today I had the pleasure to unveil the names of the Toronto Zoo’s panda cubs! Say hello to Jia Panpan (Canadian Hope) & Jia Yueyue (Canadian Joy). J’ai eu le plaisir aujourd’hui de dévoiler le nom des bébés pandas du Zoo de Toronto ! Bonjour Jia Panpan (espoir canadien) et Jia Yueyue (joie canadienne).
And finally, he’s besties with Obama

It was a bromance for the ages.
