A sexy model’s Instagram is being recreated by his baby nephew one pic at a time, and the result is absolutely adorable.
New York based model and trainer Aristotle Polites has amassed thousands of followers wth his smoldering good looks, ripped body and perfectly maintained chest hair. He has now found some new competition as the 18-month-old son of his sister Katina Behm has started doing poses just like his uncle, and now their similar poses are being posted side-by-side on an increasingly popular Instagram account.
The project actually started when Behm noticed that a cute pic of her son looked like another that his uncle had just posted. “The image of him [Augie] with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel,” she told HuffPost. “I took a picture and then realized I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modeling photos.”
The image, photographed by Royce Bugarin, shows Polites’ clutching a warm furry scarf on his scruffy muscular pecs. She created a side-by-side image of her son and her brother and sent it around to family members asking, “Who wore it better?”
Everybody loved the comparison. Now, Behm uploads pics regularly to her Instagram @babyandthebody showcasing her adorable son and hot model brother to her 33,000 followers. Sure, she’s poking fun at the ridiculous poses made by some of these Instagram hunks, but she’s doing it all out of love for her baby brother.
“I’m so proud of him because he’s out there doing his thing and following his passion, but it’s hard not to rip on him a little bit,” she told HuffPost. “Some of his modeling pictures are hilarious, but he doesn’t take himself too seriously which is good because I get such a kick out of recreating them with Augie.”
And for you gay boys out there who are curious: Aristotle is straight, but he’s quite the ally.
