Quick straw poll, guys. Who among you did not fall in love with The Bachelorette Season 9 runner-up Drew Kenney at first sight? Anyone? Anyone at all? Good, that’s what we thought.

The gorgeous Arizona native, current Los Angeles dweller celebrated his 29th birthday on April 9 — happy belated birthday, Mr. Kenney! — in quite the unusual way. While this time last year, he was in the middle of falling in love with Desiree Hartsock while filming the show, this year he’s doing… the same thing.

What are we talking about? Well, the gorgeous model and bartender posted an adorable Instagram pic of himself getting a big kiss, and we were instantly “awwww”ing it up in here. “Love at first sight,” he captions the cute pic. “I decided that there isn’t a better way to spend my 29th birthday than to adopt my first puppy. Meet Cooper Kenney. I’m already crazy about him. #cooperkenney.”

How cute! He gets a dog and Cooper Kenney gets a sweet name, an excellent cuddle companion, and his very own hashtag. Sounds like a fair trade to us!

As for Drew’s actual dating life, we’re totally in the dark these days. Back in October, we found out that Drew was dating a lucky lady named Vanessa Magos, who just happened to be Chris Harrison’s assistant. But we haven’t heard much, actually anything, about her in awhile, and Drew takes an awful lot of selfies, so we’re thinking he might be dating himself.

Just in case you want to celebrate your 30th birthday with someone, Drew, we’re available.
