The modelling world is notoriously competitive, but New York-based model Aristotle Polites is facing some unexpected competition...from his own baby nephew! As you can see from the 18-month-old toddler's adorably hilarious pictures, he's been busy recreating his uncle's poses with the help of his mom (and Aristotle's older sister) Katina Behm, and we don't know about you but we think they're even better than the originals!

It all started when Behm couldn't get her son, Augie, to wear his plaid button-up shirt. "The image of him with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel," she told The Huffington Post. "I took a picture and then realised I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modelling photos." Low and behold, there was indeed a similar picture in her brother's portfolio, so after creating a side-by-side image of Augie and Aristotle, she sent it to her family and asked them who wore it better. “My brother and I get along great,” she said. “We’ve always had a great younger brother/older sister relationship, lots of poking fun!”

Since then they've been recreating many of Augie's uncle's most dashing poses, and they've even created a joint Instagram account called @babyandthebody that's already amassed over 23k followers. Scroll down for some of our favorites, and don't forget to vote for the best!

Let's face it, this baby is meant to be a model. Seriously can someone get him a modeling job already?!?
