People’s Magazine has announced this year’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”  It’s British heartthrob David Beckham!  The 40 year old former soccer star says the title is a huge honor and doesn’t really think of himself as “sexy.”  He’s a dad of four and married to former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.

Beckham joins Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum and Matt Damon.  The issue hits newsstands on Friday. The first ever to receive the honor was Mel Gibson back in 1985.

Here’s a look at the official announcement on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
