Are you ready? Because we’re about to share a bit of news that is — how do we phrase this? — totally awesome.

Darren Criss (Blaine) just got on Instagram.

That’s right. Along with following the man behind everyone’s favorite ex-Warbler on both Twitter and WhoSay, you can now get an unfiltered hipster-style, sepia tone look into Darren’s life by following him on Instagram.

The Glee star posted his first Instagram photo on July 14, and it was everything we would expect from such a quirky, energetic, and sometimes random guy. The photo shows darren posing in one of those display boards with the head cut out you usually find at carnivals and fairs. He’s sporting a full beard, and making the face of a warrior about to rush into battle.

This is what life feels like when you grow a beard,” the caption reads.

Welcome to Instagram, Darren. We can’t wait to see all the awesome photos you’re going to post!
