BERWYN, Pa. (WPVI) -- One is a male model. His name is Aristotle (Aris for short). The other is his little nephew, Augie, and at 18 months it seems he's giving his hunky uncle a run for his money.

The delightful duo has become a viral internet sensation, with Instagram reacting with some ooohh and ahhhs... and well, other emotions.

The family hails from Berwyn, Chester County.

Mom, Katina, runs the account called "Baby and the Body." She says all started when Augie was walking around the house with his shirt unbuttoned, last year. The big sister realized it was the perfect opportunity to poke fun at her 28-year-old brother's modeling photos.

After sending a side-by-side to her family, they encouraged her to post them online and the Instagram account was born.

She says it's become a kind of "who wore it best," and I mean, come on! It's a little hard to decide.

Aristotle finds it hilarious, saying it delights him to imagine the effort his big sister puts into finding matching clothes.

The siblings' 88-year-old grandmother also loves the idea, but for typical grandma reasons. The matriarch of the family says though her model grandson is handsome, she's mainly excited to see a new photo of Augie each Sunday!

For anyone who asks: "Wow! How do you get a one and a half year old to nail every shot?" Katina says the truth is, anyone who has ever photographed a kid knows there are a million funny outtakes before you get lucky enough to land the golden pic!
