It’s pretty much common knowledge that Joseph Morgan plays one of the most complex characters on TV today. His Klaus Mikaelson proved to be a big bad on The Vampire Diaries, and we’re beginning to peel back the layers and get to know him a bit more on his own show, The Originals.

But while Klaus doesn’t think twice about snapping necks, draining blood, and daggering his siblings, Joseph is a bit more of a softie. This was proven for good yesterday, November 14, when the British actor tweeted, “Happy Birthday to my mum, who has been a constant source of love and support through my entire life.”

We’ll give you a second to recover from a sever case of the swoons… proceed.

So if this isn’t the proof that Joseph is the most adorable person on Earth, we don’t know what is. We just hope that his girlfriend, former TVD co-star Persia White, knows that she has a man that is more than a perfect specimen with amazing dimples — she’s got a real keeper.

The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
