Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay has some serious chemistry with contestant Peter Kraus and fans are totally smitten with him, too.

On Monday night, Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay brought her adorable dog, Copper on her first one-on-one date with Peter Kraus. Of course, Copper and Peter bonded instantly, but it is the budding love story between Rachel and the 30-year-old personal trainer that most of us are completely gaga over.

By the end of their date, Peter instantly earned frontrunner status. First out of the limo on night one, first one-on-one date, and the first guy to meet Rachel’s beloved dog? We’ll go out on a limb and say this — we’re already naming their babies.

It’s important to note that Bachelor franchise relationships fail at an alarming rate. (Ahem, Ben and Lauren!) And we know that many contestants don’t come on the show for the right reasons. (Hey, DeMario!)

But, let’s discuss the love connection between Peter Kraus and Rachel Lindsay, and why we’re already shipping this couple right to the final rose ceremony. And we’re not peeking at the spoilers. Okay, we looked, but we’re judging Peter and Rachel’s chemistry independent of any hearsay about the outcome of the show.

Copper clearly know what’s up. We can already picture Peter and Rachel taking Copper for long walks — along with five or six kids in tow.

Twinning smiles

Right out of the limo, Peter mentioned that he had a split in his front teeth just like Rachel. So cute. Seriously, these two smile and we melt.

Peter is confident

Take a moment to listen to what Peter says when Rachel tells him she’s bringing another guy with on their date. He doesn’t care one bit. Manly, yet sweet.

Peter is employed

Peter hails from Madison, Wisconsin where he owns a fitness company, Worth Personal Training. He has a degree in dietetics and his biz was up and running long before he became a contestant on the Bachelorette. Considering Rachel lives and works in Dallas, it wouldn’t be hard for him to find people to train in the Big D, right?

As the season progresses, we hope Peter doesn’t disappoint us because we’re already picking out wedding gifts and dreaming up cute baby names for their first child. As long as he doesn’t start Whabooming, we think he’ll do just fine.

Next: 'Bachelorette' Rachel's final pick isn't who you think — we're crying!
