Known for his role as Rafael Solano in Jane The Virgin, Justin Baldoni is our dad crush for the week.
Acting was never on the cards for this heartbreaker, no, he had his eyes set on a professional soccer career when a hamstring injury dashed his hopes of making it in the big leagues.
He left for California when a friend encouraged him to try out acting. He hasn’t looked back since. Justin has starred on both television and the big screen in Housebunny, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Heroes, CSI: NY, Happy Endings, and the latest, Jane the Virgin.
My Last Days a digital documentary series Justin created where living is told by the dying has garnered some serious attention making it the most watched digital documentary series. Its currently into its second season with the third due to air end 2018.
Since turning thirty, Justin spends his birthdays volunteering and feeding the homeless with friends. This circle of friends grew exponentially resulting in the birth of Carnival of Love, an annual event that aims to improve how people view the homeless and interact with those experiencing homelessness.
Justin is married to Swedish actress Emily Baldoni after a year of dating, the couple married and are now the proud parents of two beautiful children, Maiya Grace Baldoni and Samuel Baldoni. Stalking his Instagram, we see little Maiya Grace Baldoni by daddy’s side both on and offset. She’s a daddy’s girl for sure. @justinbaldoni.
Good morning. I know it can be hard. I know it can be heavy. But try to let any and all negativity pass you by today. Just try. Make today about love and make the conscious choice to focus on the good. Hear it. See it. Be it. We got this! “Happiness is not a limited resource” – Christopher Aiff #dearmaxwell
My wife grew up in Sweden. Every year around this time she would wake up to feet and feet of snow in the morning. Recently she’s been missing home a lot and has been giving 1000 percent to everyone except herself. She’s my wonder woman, she’s an unbelievable mother and wife and I literally don’t know what I would do without her. So this year instead of traveling to where the winter lives… I thought she deserves to have the Winter brought to her. In Los Angeles!! On top of that, Maiya turned 2 1/2 today so what a way to celebrate!! Seeing her face this morning was everything. There’s nothing better. Happy holidays everyone. From our family to yours!
(Link to enter in my bio- all our shirts/onesies are included) Heyyyyyyy!!!

I know $10 a lot so even if you can’t enter please share! Love Justin, Emily, Maiya and Maxwell “So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth” – Bahá’u’lláh
I have so much I want to say. So many thoughts and feelings and emotions over the last three weeks. So much love and adoration for my wife and everything she went through to bring Maxwell into this world. So much appreciation and adoration for my daughter. So much respect, admiration and compassion for our parents (and parents everywhere). Just so much. But right now there isn’t much time for writing- but there is time to share and send a little bit of love from my family to yours. #dearmaiya #dearmaxwell #parenthood
#dearmaxwell “O My Lord! O my Lord! I am a child of tender years. Nourish me from the breast of Thy mercy, train me in the bosom of Thy love, educate me in the school of Thy guidance and develop me under the shadow of Thy bounty. Deliver me from darkness, make me a brilliant light; free me from unhappiness, make me a flower of the rose garden; suffer me to become a servant of Thy threshold and confer upon me the disposition and nature of the righteous; make me a cause of bounty to the human world, and crown my head with the diadem of eternal life. Verily, Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty, the Seer, the Hearer” – 'Abdu'l-Bahá
