There's a little more hotness in the free world today thanks to Jeremy Meeks.
Jeremy was the man who set the Internet ablaze in 2014 after his mugshot was posted to the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page following a felony arrest for possession of a firearm.
The mugshot that showed off Jeremy's deep blue eyes racked up more than 100,000 likes on Facebook.
He was arrested on a Friday and "#FelonCrushFriday" became a trending topic at the time.
Although he's married, women offered to bail him out and let him hide out in their homes.
Jeremy was sentenced to 27 months in jail after pleading guilty to the charge. Well, he has done his time and he's out of jail. He's also reportedly left the criminal life behind and had embarked on a new era in his life: modeling!
His new line of work shouldn't come as a surprise. Shortly after his mugshot made him immediately "Insta-famous," modeling agencies lined up for his services. One company offered him a $30,000 contract while he sat behind bars.
Now a free man, he has been signed to White Cross Management and is ready to start his new career.
On March 9, he posted a snap to his already-verified Instagram account with celebrity photographer Jim Jordan, indicating he's ready to turn the page in his life and hit the pages of the magazines.
"I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers," he wrote. "I'm overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I'm ready." He hashtagged his modeling agency.
Jim reposted the image, saying, "So glad to finally reunite with my client @jmeeksofficial This was his first photo taken after his release. So excited for this man!!!"
In another new image posted to Jeremy's Instagram, he smiles while shirtless on a boat. "Looking forward to my time on the lake with my kids," he wrote.
While he was locked up, it certainly appears that Jeremy had access to his Instagram account, as he posted images of his family and counted down the days until his release.
"So excited to see @jmeeksofficialjr in two weeks! #almosthome," he said while posting a snap of him and his son, taken in Jeremy's inmate garb.
In another image of him and his wife (sorry ladies) that was posted in late January, Jeremy said, "Counting down the days."
Jeremy gave new meaning to the term "wanted."
