Beckham's Evolution
From rookie player to red hot star!
David Beckham is making history with his abs — literally!

On Monday, Elle UK revealed their first solo male cover featuring the shirtless 37-year-old front and center for their July issue. The cover, which has David dripping wet and climbing out of a pool in nothing but skin-tight trousers, was shot in anticipation of the 2012 Olympic games.

How does the hunky soccer star feel about his sex symbol status?

“How would I sum myself up? I don’t know, I prefer other people to do that,” he said in the featured interview. “Erm… a little bit shy.”

You’d think he would be more comfortable talking about his body given the numerous times he has stripped for the cameras, no? Flip through the gallery above for more of his sexy shirtless moments!

David, whose currently married to former Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham, is the proud dad to four kids: sons Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James, Cruz David, and daughter Harper Seven.

Beckham’s cover officially hits stands this Wednesday, May 30, 2012.
