It’s really hard for us to —in the words of Jef Holm — “bridle our passions” about ABC’s announcement that Sean Lowe is the next Bachelor. While we daydream about the moment Sean steps on screen in January 2013, ABC’s official press release about Sean’s Bachelorhood teases some seriously romantic themes. In short: Sean is anxious to find the love of his life and have a big family — by any means necessary and/or desired:

“A real romantic, Sean loves to make a woman feel special and, as a lifelong Texan, holds Southern values close to his heart. He wants to propose once, be married once and live a faithful family life, like his parents, who have had a loving 35-year union. Sean has a clear vision of what his life would be like with that one special woman. He wants to be the patriarch of a family that is centered on faith, love and laughter. He is eager to be a supportive husband who will encourage his wife to chase her dreams, as well as be someone whom she can rely on to help her through good and bad times. Quite simply, he is looking for his best friend. Sean also wants a big family and would love to adopt a child, as well as have some of his own, as long as he can pass on the values he has taught his kids. “

Sean is very vocal — and gracefully well-spoken — about his strong Christian faith. Will he find his soulmate on national television? ABC also released the photos of Sean’s bachelorettes, so check out the gallery and read up on our latest spoiler coverage. The premiere might be months away, but our feelings are very much happening in real time!
