David Beckham is the first man to ever grace the cover of Elle UK and he does not disappoint. The soccer star posed in a gray tee for some images and topless in soaking wet jeans for other shots. Beckham, who will carry the Olympic torch to London, opens up to the magazine about being a father to 10-month-old daughter Harper Seven.
“There’s no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it’s just different,” the father of four told the magazine. “When they [boys] are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they’re fine. Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries… I still think ‘Oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl.’ And to see the boys with her it’s incredible. When they walk into the room her little face lights up.”
It’s no wonder that women worldwide are smitten with Beckham, between his good looks, his charming smile and his love for his family. Check out the Elle UK cover and editorial below.
