“People” magazine has just revealed that David Beckham is the 2015 “Sexiest Man Alive.” Lately, Beckham has been in the spotlight as he continues his partnership with H&M and making appearances on behalf of Adidas. It’s hard to believe that the 40-year-old father of four has been in the spotlight for 20 years, from his early days as a beloved soccer star.
The London native told “People” that it was a “huge honor.”
“I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person,” he said. “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.”
On Instagram, Beckham joked that he “thought he was past his sell by date.”

I thought I was past my sell by date but thanks to @PeopleMag for the accolade and the compliment! 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! Photo by Marc Hom
Beckham is often seen wearing Adidas sneakers, a favorite being the Stan Smith style. In 2003, he signed a lifetime agreement with Adidas that is reportedly worth $160 million. In September, he was on hand to help Adidas open their new flagship store in Dubai. He’s also taken part in creating undergarment and apparel lines for H&M. Meanwhile, wife Victoria also has her own successful fashion line.
Beckham, along with his 16-year-old son Brooklyn, were spotted recently wearing the new Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Moonrock.
