    You've Been Obsessed With Bo From "Dumplin'" For Longer Than You Think

    You've seen those dimples for years, actually!

    If you watched Dumplin' on Netflix, you probably loved everything from its message of self acceptance to its touching and realistic portrayal of teens...

    ...and, let's be honest, the completely pure relationship between Bo and Willowdean.

    It's also highly likely you started immediately crushing on Bo and THOSE DIMPLES, and wondering why he looked so damn familiar.

    Well, it's probably because actor Luke Benward has been in many of your childhood favorites. For instance, he starred in 2006's How To Eat Fried Worms:

    New Line Cinema

    if you didn’t love Luke Benward at his how to eat fried worms then you don’t deserve him at his dumplin

    But maybe it's his role in the Disney Channel Original Movie Minutemen from 2008 that has you like, "Oh, that's why I know him!"

    I’m watching #Dumplin and all I can think about is this @lukebenward

    Finale watching Dumplin and can I just say Luke Benward grew up so well. He went from "son who I must protect" in minutemen to Daddy material. I feel very confused rn

    As he got older, he kept starring in DCOMs. Like Girl Vs. Monster in 2012:

    ugh remember luke benward in girl vs. monster, my 16 year old self was weak af for him

    And, of course, he starred opposite his Dumplin' co-star Dove Cameron in Cloud 9:

    Disney Channel

    I said it in 2014 when Cloud 9 first came out on Disney Chanel and I’ll say again today: Luke Benward is a fckin babe

    He also appeared on Good Luck Charlie...

    Disney Channel

    And I AM AND FOREVER WILL BE A LUKE BENWARD STAN EVER SINCE GOOD LUCK CHARLIE

    ...and Girl Meets World:

    Disney Channel

    If none of that rang a bell, maybe you really ARE just discovering Luke for the first time, which is exciting for you! But, yeah, he's practically Disney Channel royalty:

    If you remember watching Luke Benward in Minutemen, Girl vs. Monster & Cloud 9 then you’re officially a veteran. Sorry I don’t make the rules.

    Anyway, feel free to return to your regularly scheduled thirsting over Bo:
