In case there was ever any question, Victoria Beckham is one lucky lady!

The fashion designer's hubby David Beckham has been given the coveted title of People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2015! But of course, the publication didn't just give a friendly announcement with some drool-worthy pictures of the former soccer stud. No way.

It was a day full of teasers before finally revealing which hunk they chose on tonight's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! After playing a guessing game with the audience, who asked questions to the masked Sexiest Man Alive, it was revealed that the tattooed hottie snagged the title.

"I saw it about an hour ago for the first time. Yes, I have," the athlete responded when asked if he's seen the cover, and added that it's "the best moment of my career."


Beckham continued, "I would obviously like to thank my parents for bringing me into this world, of course. I would like to thank my hairdresser, my stylist."

The 40-year-old star has made hearts melt for decades, but surprisingly, he wasn't so sure he deserved the title. "I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," he tells People magazine. "I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way."

Oh David, you're just too modest.

Prior to the reveal, the magazine posted a few teasers on their Instagram to get people guessing on which handsome star would be gracing their highly anticipated cover this year. They started with a photo of the then-mystery man being primped and prepped for the photo shoot.

With the caption, "Here he is! Well, kinda," the snapshot only showed a foot, blue pants and a white shirt being lifted to flaunt a toned tummy. The guessing game started with a cross-reference of feet, toes and thighs. Oh, you think we're kidding?

They followed with a video of the shoot, but of course, never actually showed a face or more than a second of the male celeb's bod.

This extremely hot list includes previous winners Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Reynolds and Ben Affleck, to name a few.
