Meet David Gandy, the HOT Guy in J.Lo's 'First Love' Video
YouTubeIs it hot in here? Well, maybe, but it's probably just David Gandy — the incredibly attractive, muscular British model in Jennifer Lopez's new "First Love" music video. We've got to hand it to her, J.Lo knows how to pick 'em when it comes to abs and amazing eyes. Casper Smart, you are a good sport.
If you haven't seen the video yet, here's your introduction to your newest crush:
And now that you've been properly educated on David Gandy's physique, here's what else you should know about the 34-year-old you'll be dreaming about tonight.
He's tall, which is why he looks even bigger and sexier next to 5'5 Jennifer Lopez.
He Won a TV Model Search
Apparently way back in the day, Gandy wanted to be a vet, but didn't have the grades for it. So he studied multimedia computing instead. While in college, his roommate entered him into a modeling competition (without Gandy's knowledge). Miraculously, he won. The prize was a modeling contract with Select Model Management in London. The rest is basically history.
He's the "White Pants Man"
He was the face of the brand's "Light Blue" fragrance in 2007 and was then plastered on a 50-foot billboard in Times Square — in nothing but his "white (under)pants".
He's a Scotch Man
He was the brand ambassador for Johnnie Walker Blue Label. If you're not a scotch person, this is some serious motivation to step it up. (But maybe start with Red Label before you drop $170 on a bottle of alcohol you don't even like.)
He's a Writer Too
Since 2011, Gandy has written a blog for British Vogue where he discusses fashion and lifestyle items. He also reviews cars for British GQ. And is a contributor to the Daily Telegraph's men's lifestyle section.
He Loves Animals
And they love him. He's a celebrity ambassador for the UK's Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and takes saving animals seriously. (See, he just keeps getting better and better.)
He Works Out
Just a little. Notice how easily he lifted that giant tire in J.Lo's video.
He's Not an Easy Boyfriend
Sorry, ladies: He's kind of a handful, and he admits it. "My perfectionism can make it difficult," he said of dating. "I know my ex-girlfriend struggled. Things have to be perfect – everything in the house, every car I buy. That’s incredibly hard to live with if you don’t understand it. If either a relationship or my work must suffer, then I’m afraid it has to be the relationship," told Men's Health.
Still, ladies like Mollie King, Samantha Barks, and Laura Whitmore from taking a shot with the sexy model. Unfortunately, none of these relationships lasted very long.
And there you have it.
