Nicky Libert, a construction worker from Amsterdam, was doing his job one day when a tourist from London stopped him for a photo. He had no idea that this would be the photo that would change his life ~forever~.

Dressed in his uniform, the 26-year-old was snapped by photography student Danika Magdelena.

"So I randomly stopped this construction worker in Amsterdam and asked him for a photo because he was beautiful af. #someonesignhim," the 21-year-old wrote on Instagram.

What happened next? Libert's photo went viral, of course.



And turned him into a bit of a celebrity.

Je zal maar zomaar de beroemde bouwvakker tegen het lijf lopen .. 😁😏

And it didn't take long before the fashion industry noticed Libert's beauty either — not even a week later, he was signed to Elite Amsterdam.


"[Sic throughout] What a amazing last week i had.. it's been like a rollercoaster! Everything changed at once & it took some getting used to.. I have to say i'm handling it better & better. I want to thank @sirius.film @ygsiri for this amazing opportunity! #dreamscometrue," the Dutch construction worker wrote on Instagram where he went from 500 followers to 35,000 followers in just a few days, according to the Independent.

This is almost as great of a story as that one time Pietro Boselli, the man dubbed "The World's Hottest Math Teacher," landed a modelling gig with Giorgio Armani's EA7 SportsLine.

Oh, you can check Boselli out in this slideshow below:
