Look out Hollywood, this gorilla is handsome enough to join your ranks.

Named Shabani, the gorilla at the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, Japan has become an internet sensation, with reports of 100 admirers regularly crowding his exhibit, according to CNN.

The 18-year-old Shabani already has two wives, Ai and Nene, and has been a very good father to his children Kiyomasi and Annie, Takayushi Ishikawa, a zoo spokesperson, told CNN.

The gorilla seems to be enjoying the new attention.

"He seems to have noticed his new popularity, but he's kept it very cool," Ishikawa said.
