The time has come to slip into a three-piece suit, put on your most confuzzled expression and celebrate Chace Crawford's (Nate) 27th birthday in true Gossip Girl style. In other news, the time has also come to binge eat cake, so (without further ado) check out five reasons we love Chace!

1. Endless Abs
All the guys on Gossip Girl are studly, but do they have six-packs? Not so much. Chace, on the other hand, is a walking Greek God with washboard abs and chiseled pecs. If this whole acting thing doesn't work out, perhaps he could pursue a career as an underwear model. Can we get an amen?

2. He's a Southern Gent
You might not be able to tell from his smooth-talking Gossip Girl alter ego, but Chace is from The Lone Star State! You know what that means, ladies. He's a true southern gentleman with manners and charm up the wazoo. Don't mind if we do!

3. He's Single (Maybe...Kinda)
Chance is always being linked to one pretty lady or another, but we have it on good authority that this stud is single and more than ready to mingle. That means he could be yours, Gossip Gals!

4. He's a Great Actor
Chace is known for his devastating good looks, but he's actually a pretty talented actor. Not only does he amaze and impress on Gossip Girl, he's also been in several feature films including What To Expect When You're Expecting. Comedic genius, guys.

5. He's a Momma's Boy
We love men who aren't afraid to show a little love to their moms! "My parents] were really young when they had me," Chace says. "You know, it's a southern thing... They've still got a little hipness left in them. I took my mom out last night. She said, 'I want to know what all of the fuss is about.'"

Happy birthday from Wetpaint Entertainment, Chace!
