Josh Perkins from Stevensville, MT is a finalist in REDBOOK's America's Hottest Husbands contest.

Josh, 26, an agriculture education teacher, was nominated for the contest by his wife Whitney, 24. "Whether doing household chores, working on the ranch, or teaching high school students, Josh pours his heart into everything and doesn't stop until he feels he's done the best job," says Whitney. Through their first six months of dating, Josh and Whitney had a long distance relationship. "Every week, Josh would mail me love letters. By the end of the summer I had a box overflowing with his writing — and a heart overflowing with love for him." Josh's sweet gestures haven't stopped. "He still hides notes for me throughout the house, leaves me a glass of ice water on my nightstand before bed, warms up my car on cold mornings, and sings lullabies to our son," she says. "He makes me feel like the luckiest girl."
