12 reasons we're in love with Justin Trudeau

Oh HELLO Prince Eric. Sorry, we mean, Mr Prime Minister

12 reasons we're in love with Justin Trudeau
Justin 'JT' Trudeau

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

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.

We can’t even.

He looks like a Disney Prince

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).

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.

Last year, he became the first sitting Prime Minister to attend both Vancouver and Toronto Pride. His gleeful expression at both delighted fans worldwide.

And he’s big on LGBTI rights, generally

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.

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

Pandas love him

And finally, he’s besties with Obama

It was a bromance for the ages.
