Who could forget Lena’s swoon-worthy boyfriend Kostas in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, who she met in Greece while visiting family? The rivalry between their families resembled the epicness of the Montagues and Capulets, and we couldn’t help but root for these lovebirds despite the family tension it caused. Kostas was caring, sensitive, and hard-working.

And those dimples and sharp jawline certainly didn’t hurt.

And – let’s be real – you easily imagined yourself boarding his fishing boat in lieu of Lena.

We’d go finishing with Kostas any day.

The actor who played Kostas, Michael Rady, has since appeared in several TV shows–including Intelligence, Jane the Virgin, and UnREAL–and he’s still a total heartthrob.

Here he is playing the role of Special Agent Chris Jameson on Intelligence.

Same dreamy eyes, gorgeous hair, and jawline that could cut glass.

And here he is now, in his full, bearded glory.

Some things only get better with time…like a bearded Michael Rady, obviously.

He’s also a super cute dad and husband, who has two boys with his wife.

I mean, can you get much cuter? #familygoals

And his first Snapchat, which he also shared on Twitter, is adorably perfect.

*swooning* <3

Here he is, geeking out while on the set of UnREAL.

Some things truly *do* get better with time.

Like wine – and Michael Rady.

We’re still holding out hope that he’ll someday reprise his role as Kostas in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3, perhaps?? Lucky for us, we can still catch him on UnREAL in the meantime.

Kostas on the big screen again? We can dream.
