We know him best as Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, but to two little cuties, Paul Wesley is Uncle Paul. Check out this oh-so-adorable snapshot of Paul with his niece and nephew!

One Mobio INsider fan asked Paul to post a photo of himself with his niece and nephew, and Paul granted the request! He shared a sweet shot of himself with Maya and Henry, and the three look so cute together. Paul seems to be a very proud uncle, spending as much time with the little munchkins as possible — and sharing his love for them with the world. Over Thanksgiving, he tweeted this photo of himself with another one of his adorable relatives, captioning the pic: “Happy thanksgiving from Max and uncle Paul.” We love that Paul is such a loving uncle!

And Paul isn’t the only Salvatore acting as a hot uncle while not on vampire duty. On-screen brother Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) keeps it real as a kickass uncle, too. Check out these photos Alloy Entertainment posted of Ian hanging with his niece and nephew and try not to swoon. Go on, we dare you! And good luck trying to decide which of the Salvatore brothers is the hotter uncle — it’s an impossible question to answer.

Did you know Paul and Damon were both uncles? Sound off in the comments below!

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
