17 Times Luke Hemmings' Beard Gave 5SOS Fans So Much Life, But Also Nearly Killed Them With Its Beauty — PHOTOS

Attention 5 Seconds of Summer fans, you'll want to read this. For every fellow member of the 5SOS fam who can appreciate the embarrassing amount of thirst I have for Luke Hemmings' lip ring, we need to take a moment to discuss the sorcery that is Luke Hemmings' beard. Over the past few weeks, the 5SOS frontman's stubble has blessed us with its rapidly growing presence, gloriously gracing the cover of 5 Seconds of Summer's new book, stopping everyone's hearts at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards, and being featured prominently at every recent promo event and performance the band has done. BLESS YOU, LUKE HEMMINGS' SCRUFF. BLESS YOU.

Fortunately for my this-is-probably-bordering-on-creepy infatuation with the 19-year-old's facial hair, 5SOS fans all across the world are equally as obsessed with Luke Hemmings' newly-minted beard as I am. In fact, Beard Luke stans have taken to Twitter in droves to detail their Luke-with-stubble-induced meltdowns in real time, making some of us (read: me) feel like we've finally found our people. And as long as Luke Hemmings continues to be proud of his beard, fans will continue to react accordingly. See for yourself.
