People has anointed David Beckham, 40, as this year's Sexiest Man Alive. "It's a huge honor," said David in this week's issue of People. "And I'm very pleased to accept."

In the video above, Becks reveals what his wife Victoria Beckham and his kids think of his new title: "I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway!" he said. "But she said, 'Congratulations!'. We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, 'Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?'" His son, Brooklyn, 16, had a go at it too, joking, "Are you sure it's not me that's meant to be there today?"

He's been a sex symbol for a whopping 2 decades, and People thinks he still has it, but he apparently doesn’t. "I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," mused the self-effacing soccer star. The best bit of all was his ultra-cute response to the whole thing on his Instagram account (check the post below).


Becks jests: "I always feel a little shy when receiving these Awards, though it will make my Mum happy. This one the kids will laugh at, as they see what Daddy looks like in the morning!"
