He's quite possibly one of the cutest guys on the planet.
For the record, we aren't talking about Josh Duhamel for a change but his gorgeous little boy, Axl.

With beautiful blonde curls and a button nose, this handsome little chap has clearly gotten his father's good genes.

The husband of Black Eyed Peas front woman Fergie, 39, is often spotted in Brentwood, California, carrying their baby boy in his arms. 

And today was no different as the Safe Haven star picked up Axl - who celebrated his first birthday with a sports-themed party in August - from a swimming lesson.
The 41-year-old, recently joked about his cheeky tot's 'defiant' behaviour on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Tuesday.

'They get to a certain age and they start to test you a little bit. He'll stick his finger up my nose and I'll say, "No. Don't do that." Then he'll stick it up his nose. He thinks it's funny,' Josh said. 

The proud dad added: 'He's walking. He's fully mobile. I just took him to the beach for the first time. I feel a little guilty about that because we live two miles from the beach.'
'I'll take him to the pool with me and we have swimming lessons, but when you have the water rushing up at you it's a little bit different,' he continued. 'He freaked out a little but he's fine.'   
Josh looked typically casual and comfy in a grey hoodie and his favourite snap-back. 

Meanwhile, as well as being an incredibly attentive father, Josh is also keeping busy with several television and movie projects.
He will next appear in the drama You're Not You - due out October 10 - alongside Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum, and Ali Larter.
The Emmy winner was also seen last week on the set of the upcoming CBS series Battle Creek created by Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan.
