Vampire Diaries star Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert) seems to spend a disproportionate amount of time with his shirt off — which we totally support, by the way. Check out his latest shirtless photo and try not to swoon!

“Using my mama's crutches @staciarr,” Steven captioned the photo of his studly self with too-short crutches and no shirt. Coincidentally, this is only the latest in a long line of shirtless photos from the TVD star. Last month, we found out that — in addition to fake-crutching — other activities that Steven performs shirtless includes watching the Oscars. His mom shared this Instagram snapshot of Steven watching the awards ceremony, captioned: “@steven_r_mcqueen watching the #oscars — shirtless of course.” Ha! We love that his own mother has also noticed his propensity for going shirtless. We wonder if this particular trait surfaced at a young age?

Steven’s shirtlessness continued at this past weekend’s Coachella. We have proof in the form of this smiling snapshot with co-star Nina Dobrev. There was also this shot of a shirtless Steven astride a giant horse statue. Of course, Steven isn’t shirtless in all of the time. Just this past weekend, we got a rare glimpse at a shirt-wearing Steven in this shot of him and a friend driving back from Coachella. So, apparently, Steven’s shirt allergy is getting better. (But will hopefully never be completely cured.)

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