It’s no surprise why Elle UK picked David Beckham as their first-ever male cover model. Just look at all those wet, hunky, perfect-chiseled abs!
America’s favorite British soccer player showed off his uber-toned body in a series of photos where he emerges, soaking wet, from a pool while clad in skin-tight Dior Homme jeans.
Elle’s editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy called David a “national hero”, saying, “he is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover. This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike.”
The 37-year-old LA Galaxy soccer star revealed in the mag that he’s rather shy opening up and talking about himself. “How would I sum myself up?” David said in the interview. “I don’t know what to say. I hate describing myself”
The edgy dad, however, did surprise us by talking about his love for his kids – especially baby girl Harper Seven!
“I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It’s how a baby should be,” He said. “There’s no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it’s just different. When they (boys) are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they’re fine. Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries. I still think ‘Oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl.”
