British heartthrob David Beckham is named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive. Every year People magazine crowns a new hunk for the title, this year going to the former soccer star and dad-of-four.

This year marks the 30th anniversary for the publication’s “Sexiest” award. Beckham, 40, told the mag, “It’s a huge honor. And I’m very pleased to accept.”

Although Beckham has been a sex symbol for years, he tells the magazine he doesn’t see himself in that light. “I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person.” The public clearly disagrees!

Beckham’s wife, Victoria, 41, and their four children Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and Harper, 4, were also amused that he took home the award. Beckham told People, “We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, ‘Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?'”

Last year’s award went to Aussie Chris Hemsworth and the year prior went to Maroon 5’s front man Adam Levine.
