Soon to be daddy, KJ Apa - who stars in popular teen drama Riverdale, which returns to our screens tonight at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT on The CW - surprised his fans by revealing to his 19.5 million Instagram followers that he has a surprising new hobby!

The 24-year-old actor got "up close and personal" with a hive of bees for his latest Instagram post and Story, and impressed his fans with his "bee whisperer" skills.

A social media user wrote beneath the post, "Oh man ? you're a real bee whisperer!" While another added, "How do you do that??? I’m terrified of bees!!! They literally love you!"

Clearly, castmates were also impressed with Kj's bee skills, because several also commented on the post. Vanessa Morgan, 29, who plays Riverdale's resident bad*ss, Toni Topaz, wrote on KJ Apa's post, "I want to go!" while Camila Mendes - who recently reignited her romance with another castmate Charles Melton - simply wrote "Triggered," clearly being traumatized by the many bees covering the actor.

Although KJ didn't reveal the purpose of his visit to the local bee keep, he accompanied his post with a caption that praised the bees' organisational skills while urging his fans not to "try this at home". He wrote:

"We went to a local bee keeper to get close up and personal with some honey bees in a controlled environment and wow. These are the most organized, intelligent creatures. Do not try this at home!"
