Today we're celebrating the 37th birthday of the manliest man in Hollywood, Jason Momoa! The Aquaman actor first dazzled us as the famed Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones — and now it's hard to imagine a world without him.

Momoa is an undeniably talented actor, but what's even harder to deny are his unparalleled levels of sexiness. From his TV roles to his social media pages, you cannot look upon his gorgeous face without being overcome with emotion.

To celebrate Jason Momoa's birthday, here are 19 swoon-worthy moments that make us thankful he was born:

1. When He Put The BAE In Baywatch

Maybe it's time I start watching "Baywatch Hawaii."
Maybe it's time I start watching "Baywatch Hawaii."

The young Jason Momoa looks pretty different, but I'd recognize those cheekbones and brows anywhere.

2. When He Stood Up For His (Fictional) Wife

Viserys learned the hard way that if you ask Khal Drogo for a gold crown, you will receive a gold crown.

3. When He Proved To Be A Better Husband In Real Life

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have been together since 2005 and got married in 2007. They have two adorable children together named Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha.

4. Not To Mention The Cutest Dad Ever

Is it too much to ask that I be adopted into their family at 25?

5. When He Crashed A Comic-Con Panel

In 2013, Momoa crashed the Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel to give the Moon of His Life a kiss on the cheek.

6. When He Made A Bath Look Like A Dream

Not to mention he clearly likes big glasses of red wine. We already have so much in common!

7. When He Got In Fighting Shape

Here we can see Jason Momoa and his burly man-bun training for Zack Snyder's Justice League. If I wasn't already pumped for the movie, I certainly am now.

8. When He Rocked A Suit

Here we can see this gorgeous specimen donning a maroon velvet suit jacket that presumably no one else could pull off.

9. When He Flaunted His Goofy Side With Emilia Clarke

Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen forever!

10. When He Resembled A Handsome Giant Holding His Goddaughter

Dear all future boyfriends to Jason Momoa's goddaughter: Tread lightly.

11. When He Looked Ridiculously Happy Posing With Mike Tyson

These two tough guys sure know how to look cute together.

12. When He First Appeared As Aquaman

Screw Batman and Superman, I'm Team Aquaman.

13. When He Looked Like The King Of Atlantis

Momoa's fishing skills might be able to satiate my hunger, but what about this thirst?

14. When He And His Mom Were Too Adorable For Words

If you still want to further crank up the amount of swoon for Jason Momoa, Google search images of him with his mom Coni. Too. Much. Cuteness.

15. When He Reminded Us He's A Pimp

Khal Drogo for the win!
Khal Drogo for the win!

There's no arguing with straight fact.

16. When He And Lisa Bonet Took A Stand

This picture was taken as a part of the viral internet protest against the placement of a telescope on the summit of summit the dormant volcano Mauna Kea.

17. When He Wore This Ridiculously Large Hat

And still managed to look good. How do you do it, Jason? Teach me your ways.

18. I Mean...

There are no words. Only guttural grunts.

19. C'mon

Turning 37 never looked so good.

Happy Birthday, Jason Momoa! You sexy aquatic Dothraki god, you.

Don't ever change.
