It’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday. We repeat, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday!

In honor of the actor’s 42nd birthday, we’ve rounded up 15 throwback photos of dreamy Leo to remind us all why he was our first crush — like you’d ever forget? Ya, we didn’t think so.

Even if DiCaprio wasn’t your first crush — which if that’s so, shame on you — you have to admit he was a total dreamboat when he first came onto the Hollywood scene.

Sure, he is still very handsome, but it’s his birthday, so we had to do something special — for us that is — and relive some of his hottest and sexiest moments from the days when DiCaprio posters were on every wall and girls’ locker, aka the ’90s. Enjoy!

Thank goodness he outgrew that phase, or at least doesn’t rock this outfit while playing basketball anymore.

Happy Birthday Leo DiCaprio, you will forever be our first love — even if we’ve never met.
