For it's 30th annual installment of the "Sexiest Man Alive" titles, People Magazine has named former soccer great David Beckham as the title holder for 2015.
"It's a huge honor," Beckham, 40, tells PEOPLE of scoring our 30th anniversary Sexiest Man crown. "And I'm very pleased to accept."
"I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," he says in this week's cover story. "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."
Still, when Beckham shared the news with his wife, fashion mogul Victoria Beckham, 41, she was totally on-board.
"I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway!" he says with a shy smile. "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?' "
People's "Sexiest Man Alive" issue goes on sale this Friday.
