Man Crush Monday: David Beckham

 

David Beckham – the man, the myth, the legend. For years he has dominated not only the soccer pitch, but also our television screens, our magazine covers, and our red carpets and for good reason. Here are some of the reasons why I love Mr. Beckham:

1. That smile

Look at that grin. Irresistible.

 

2. His suggestive eyebrow raising and head gesturing

So cheeky.

 

3. He’s kind of good at soccer

4. Which means he’s good at running

5. And breathing. He’s good at breathing, too.

That’s an important skill to have.

 

6.  He’s had a plethora of hairstyles

He’s definitely not afraid to take some risks.

 

7.  He knows how to swim

8. He does a bit of modeling work on the side

9. He has a movie named after him

If you haven’t seen “Bend It Like Beckham” you need to fix that immediately! Fantastic film!

 

10.  He has a pretty hot wife

He’s been married to Victoria Beckham (aka “Posh Spice” from the Spice Girls) since 1999.

In case you haven’t seen a Spice Girls video lately, here’s a clip from her during the peak of their career!

And she’s still got it – here she is performing in the 2012 Olympic ceremony!

11.  He’s a family man

He and Victoria have four kids together: Brooklyn (14), Romeo (11), Cruz (8), and Harper (2).

LOOK AT THOSE GENES. THEY ARE A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.

 

12.  He’s BFF’s with the future king of England

He and Posh even scored an invite to the royal wedding!

 

13.  He’s also Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty. Casual.

 

We love you, David!

 

Stay awesome.
