He just got a new dog, and is expecting his fourth child with wife Victoria this summer, but David Beckham apparently has a little free time on his hands. The British soccer star confirmed to WWD today that he’s at work on several projects, including the development of a second men’s fragrance, Homme by David Beckham, and the design of a new men’s bodywear line. “I have had the idea of doing a bodywear collection for some time now,” Beckham told WWD. “The push to do something of my own really came as a result of my collaboration with Armani. It proved to me that there is a real market for good-looking, well-made men’s bodywear. I can’t wait to show people the collection — although I’m not sure my mum will be too happy seeing a billboard image of me in underwear again.” Beckham, who’s topped Vanity Fair‘s best-dressed list, launched a clothing line with Adidas in 2009, and has fronted ad campaigns for everyone from Diet Pepsi to Motorola. So is the soccer stud ready to turn in his cleats? Not just yet. “I will always be associated with my sport,” he assured WWD, “but I am now working across other areas that will continue long after my career has finished.” —Kate Hogan
