    People Are Falling In Love With A Dutch Construction Worker Because He Is Beautiful

    He's beautiful, it's true.

    Meet Nicky Libert, a 26-year-old construction worker from Amsterdam whose photos have blown up online.


    Libert said he was approached at work by a group of girls who asked him if he was a model. Then they asked if they could take a picture of him, which he agreed to.

    The photo was taken by Danika, a 21-year-old fashion photography student from London, who shared his beautiful face with the world.

    So I randomly stopped this construction worker in Amsterdam and asked him for a photo because he was beautiful af.…

    Danika told BuzzFeed News she was on holiday with her friends and while they were walking in the city, Libert caught their eye.

    She said: "Even though shooting strangers is what I do on a daily basis, I was still a little apprehensive to approach him because I didn’t want to seem strange, but my friends encouraged me to do so and I went over and started talking to him."

    Soon after Libert's photo was shared online, the internet started falling in love with him.

    People made it their mission to find him.

    And find him they did.

    Danika, who had Libert's information, commented on one of his Instagram photos and guessed that people likely found him from there.

    Libert went from having hundreds of Instagram followers to over 20K in 24 hours.

    He said he has been overwhelmed by all the reactions and found it a strange thing to wake up to.

    Libert said he has never modelled professionally but has taken pictures for fun.

    Never stop having fun, Libert.
