(Wonder if Clare Crawley sees that as well? Only time will tell!)

Morais and his nephew clearly share a bond over soccer. "CR7 keeps our hopes alive. #7 #Portugal #WorldCup #Fifa2014" he posted alongside a photo of him and his nephew sporting soccer jerseys. The backdrop behind them, the giant-sized flag of Portugal.

6. He's obsessed with working out and believes the "pump" to be a priority. 

No surprise there! On October 6, 2017, Morais posted a photo to Instagram from the gym. He and his two friends, Johnny Haiki and Austin Simone, are depicted flexing a muscle, striking a pose in their athletic shorts and sneakers. 

"Getting a pump is without question the most important thing in life!" Morais wrote, "Well besides God, family, friends, babies, fat babies, chunky babies, chubby babies and babies! #pumpispriority."

7. He's a professional model.

Scroll through his Instagram feed, and find glamour shots of Morais on the beach or flaunting his abs. 

8. He had a pretty decent year in 2018. 

On January 2, 2019, he posted an Instagram photo of himself standing next to a telescope. "I had a pretty decent 2018 and I’m looking forward to an even better 2019 but when your long toes hang over most sandals you wear it’s really hard to stay positive and have high hopes for the future." Jokes on him, we guess. 2020 is kind of terrible for everyone, except for maybe Clare Crawley — we hope she found love!
