i am not a gay or similar to this but he is very attractive
lots of women think he’s kinda hot and a really cant understand its maybe because he has that ”daddy” vibe idk imao
But also French and German people can sometimes have remote Spanish ancestry due to the proximity of the places, also it would make sense for his brother to at least have some Spanish ancestry
Also I believe he has vitiligo which could affect the way he looks now
