David Henrie has a big reason to celebrate. The Disney Channel alum, who we all know and love from his iconic role as Justin Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place, is turning the big 2-8 today. Can you believe it? It seems like yesterday when he was playing Selena Gomez‘s big bro, but he’s been in a ton of other notable television series and movies as well.

If we learned anything from Wizards of Waverly Place – more specifically, it’s theme song (what a jam) – it’s that “everything is not what it seems.” However, one thing that proves to be true no matter what is that David seriously evolved over the years into quite the beautiful specimen.

Now David started out as a kid as such a cutie, but it seems as though he just got more gorgeous as the years flew by. Watch him evolve from a crush-worthy teen to a super hot stud right before your eyes, as we take a little walk down memory lane. It’s so fun to see all the TV and movie roles he has starred in!
