    David Beckham Wooed Victoria Beckham With Short Shorts: "I Was Obviously Trying to Impress Her"

    If any man can pull off a pair of short shorts, it's David Beckham.

    The 39-year-old stud recently launched his new swimwear line for H&M—which includes everything from two-toned board shorts to itty-bitty briefs—and while speaking with GQ about the campaign, he opened up about his own preference when it comes to swimwear fashion. 

    "Funnily enough, I've always tended to go for the tighter, smaller trunks," he said. "I don't know why. But it really depends what mood I'm in—sometimes I wear ridiculously baggy shorts that you've not going to get a tan in. It's down to my mood and the beach I'm on—or what age I am, of course!" 

    The former professional soccer player continued, dropping a hilarious bombshell about the time when he first began dating his wife, Victoria.

    "When I first started going out with Victoria and we went away for the first time I remember I took a pair of small, tight, dark blue Gucci trunks with me—I was obviously trying to impress her," he admitted with a laugh. "They were really small, but they worked!"

    They did indeed, considering the couple have been married for 14 years and have four beautiful children together—Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, 9, and Harper, 2. 

    The gorgeous duo was most recently spotted together at the 2014 Met Gala, where Victoria rocked a stunning white gown from her own label, while Becks wore a Ralph Lauren Black Label tux.

    "So proud to share such a great evening with my wonderful husband x vb #MetGala #CharlesJames," the fashionista tweeted after the annual fete.
