Even Teller's wife, Keleigh Sperry-Teller got in on action by posting a video of her and her husband on vacation, allowing fans to see a sneak peak to his personality in real life.

Commenters jokingly accused Sperry-Teller of putting the thirsty fans in their place.

"she said “make your little tictoks, bc i’ve got the ring," a commenter wrote.

"She said “in case y’all forgot” PLSSS LMAO," another added.

But Sperry-Teller set things straight by posting another video with the caption, "We’re all team rooster here, thirst on.."


We’re all team rooster here, thirst on..💌💅🏼

Last year, Teller and his wife were featured in Taylor Swift's I Bet You Think About Me music video.

With Sperry-Teller's blessing, TikTokers are continuing to peacefully dream about Teller. Even some men have been inspired by Teller to shave their face to match the mustache he has in Top Gun: Maverick.
