"We kind of laughed about it with the boys," David told People, "and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, 'Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?'"
His teen son, Brooklyn, has been making a name for himself as a model and photographer (with 5 million Instagram followers) and he gave his dad the hardest time about being named Sexiest Man Alive. "Brooklyn was the one who was like, 'Are you sure it's not me that's meant to be there today?'" Haha. Wait your turn, kid. Just a couple of days ago, Brooklyn joined his father in a charity soccer/football match for UNICEF, showing that he really is following in his father's footsteps.
David made fun of himself, while showing off his new People cover, acknowledging that his kids were now laughing at him:
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!
When People asked for his wife Victoria Beckham's response, he said, "I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway! But she said, 'Congratulations!'"
Congrats, man! Are you happy with this choice or were you hoping to see someone else on the cover?
