The devoted husband to Victoria and  father to Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and Harper, 4 said his family teased him about taking out the title. “We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, ‘Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?’ ”

Beckham said his eldest son gave him the most grief: “Brooklyn was the one who was like, ‘Are you sure it’s not me that’s meant to be there today?'”
