It's cute that you're so humble, David Beckham!!
While we are still swooning over the 40-year-old's Sexiest Man Alive cover of People, the former soccer star admits he doesn't view himself that way. Victoria Beckham's husband took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the honor:
"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!"
Aww, we're sure momma Beckham is real proud!
Inside the issue, he continues:
"I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person. 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."
Let us assure you, DB, you are definitely an attractive, and very seXXXy person!
