David Beckham: My kids laughed at sexy award

David Beckham's children "laughed at him" when he told them he had won the Sexiest Man Alive award.

The former soccer star was given the honour by PEOPLE magazine but has joked that his kids - sons Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10 and daughter Harper, four - were less than impressed by the title.

He explained: "We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, 'Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?'

"My oldest son, Brooklyn was the one who was like, 'Are you sure it's not me that's meant to be there today?'"

And it is not the first time the children have felt embarrassed by their dad as David's wife Victoria Beckham revealed their eldest son Brooklyn won't let the 40-year-old star drop him off outside the school gates.

She shared to PEOPLE magazine: "When David takes Brooklyn to school, Brooklyn makes him drop him down at the end of the street, because he thinks it's embarrassing.

"I'm like, if you're embarrassed by your dad and he's David Beckham, what chance does any other father at the school have?"
