David Beckham Is PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive

David Beckham is a global superstar, devoted husband and down-to-earth dad of four. And now, the British heartthrob is this year’s Sexiest Man Alive.

“It’s a huge honor,” Beckham, 40, tells PEOPLE of scoring our 30th anniversary Sexiest Man crown. “And I’m very pleased to accept.”

Although he’s been a sex symbol for nearly two decades, the self-effacing soccer icon isn’t sure he’s even deserving of the mantle. “I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person,” he says in this week’s cover story.

“I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don’t ever think of myself that way.”

Still, when Beckham shared the news with his wife, fashion mogul Victoria Beckham, 41, she was totally on-board. “I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway!” he says with a shy smile. “But she said, ‘Congratulations!'”sma-cover-a-435

      Heheheheheheee!!! I saw that too and rolled my eyes. Like really? The world has been telling you you’re fine for nearly all your life and you’ve never looked at the mirror and gone, ‘Hey, they are right. I’m one heck of a fine man.’
