Riz Ahmed Fully Paused the Oscars Red Carpet to Help His Wife, Fatima Farheen Mirza, Fix Her Hair

Riz Ahmed is making history tonight at the Academy Awards. He’s also making us swoon as he plays the role of Best Husband Ever on the red carpet.

Ahmed is nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of a drummer who loses his hearing in Sound of Metal. The British-Pakistani actor’s nomination marks the first time in Oscars history that a Muslim nominee has been nominated for the Best Actor trophy.

While it still remains to be seen if Ahmed will take home an Academy Award tonight, he’s already a winner in the Cutest Red Carpet Moment category. While posing for photos on the Oscars’ red carpet at Union Station in Los Angeles with his wife, Fatima Farheen Mirza, the actor asked photogs to give him a second to do something very important—help his wife fix her hair.

“I’m the official groomer,” Ahmed joked.

Variety caught the certifiably adorable moment on film and it’s definitely worth a watch (or twelve).
