Let Us Introduce You to the Husband/Son

Cosmopolitan.com 2019-10-10 04:45:00

A few months ago, we stumbled upon a tweet that shook us to our very core. It was describing Timothée Chalamet during the Golden Globes, and the woman who did the tweeting called him her "Husband/Son." We had never heard this before, but it was so accurate that it has stuck with us all these months later, because the reality is, we all want Timothée to be both our Husband AND our Son.

That's when we realized that title doesn't just apply to the spindly and charming TChal. You see, a Husband/Son is a celebrity that you want to both bone and nurture in a very stereotypical mom way. It's like, someone who is hot but still maintains a goofiness you find endearing. They're earnest, if you will. You love them on a deeper level than just thirst, which means you'd like to see them in a form-fitting pair of grey sweatpants but also pinch their cute, squishy, but somehow still chiseled cheeks. It's complicated, okay?

We're about to break this down for you the easiest way we know how: Giving you examples of celebs that are strictly Husbands compared to those who are Husband/Sons. Please note that celebrities that are strictly "Sons" have been intentionally excluded from this narrative. (Looking at you, Yungblud, Pharrel and Justin Bieber.)

Husband/Son: Timothée Chalamet

The man who started it all. So derpy. So adorable. But also...so hot. That jaw! We rest our case.

Husband: Jacob Elordi

We're repeatedly expected to believe that this man is a high school student, but make no mistake. There is nothing son-ly about Jacob Elordi. He doesn't need you to pack a lunch for him. He's 76 inches of pure Husband.

Husband/Son: Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes is only 21 years old, which puts him firmly in the Husband/Son category. But this isn't just about age. He still makes peace signs in pictures, so...Husband/Son.

Husband: Michael B. Jordan

Don't let those cute lil dimples confuse you. Michael B. Jordan is so Husband that you are legally obligated to sign a prenup before continuing with this post. We don't make the rules.

Husband/Son: Jimin from BTS

Jimin is a prime example of a Husband/Son simply because it is impossible to look at a photo of him without audibly squealing. He's ADORABLE.

Husband: Brad Pitt

The Daddiest of all Daddies. He needs no nurturing whatsoever because he's a grown ass man.

Husband/Son: Leonardo DiCaprio

Look, Leo is 44 years old, but he needs your love and mothering. Just ask Rihanna.

Husband: Jon Hamm

If you don't want to marry Jon Hamm, IDK what's wrong with you, frankly. No offense to Jon's actual mom and dad...but it's impossible to picture this man even having parents in the first place. He was probably born as a whole-ass adult, sexy stubble and all.

Husband/Son: Tom Holland

BB Tom! So pure, so cute, so wholesome. He might play a superhero who can save the world, but he probably can't even tie his own shoes, and we love him for that.

The ones that broke us...

The above mans are pretty straight forward. They all neatly fit into either the Husband/Son or Husband categories. But there were a few celebrities that even we, the esteemed professionals at Cosmopolitan, couldn't figure out.

Harry Styles

Okay, here's the thing. Harry is a suave, sophisticated man. But he's also a total goofball. This is SO tricky. One minute he's singing about sexy stuff and the next he's making funny faces to the camera while dressed up as Elton John.



Adam Driver

The hard thing about Adam is that in some pictures he's a Husband and in others he's a Husband/Son. He can literally change his entire identity with the change of a facial expression. Please weigh in below.

Charles Melton

He has a very Husband face but Hollywood keeps casting him as characters who can't even legally drink. What is the truth?!
