Sexiest Neat Freak Alive?

David Beckham is handsome, athletic, and devoted to his family. And, as if he couldn’t get any more perfect, he’s also good with a vacuum. Really good.

“I can’t settle in at night before everything is tidy,” admits Beckham, 40, in this week’s cover story that marks PEOPLE’s 30th Sexiest Man Alive anniversary.

“I will stay up into one o’clock in the morning making sure everything is tidy, whether it’s vacuuming or putting things in the dishwasher.”

Proving that opposites really do attract, Beckham’s wife, fashion mogul Victoria Beckham, 41, is not quite as fastidious.

“Victoria is the opposite,” he says. “She will leave her shoes in the middle of the hallway and leave her makeup out so I go around picking everything up and closing cupboards.”

And that works out pretty well for her.

“He likes things done a certain way, which is great because I leave a mess everywhere I go,” Victoria tells PEOPLE. “That’s why we are good partners. I leave a mess and he tidies it up.”

Beckham says his kids are picking up some of his good habits.

“My children religiously get up and make their beds – even Harper,” he says of his 4-year-old daughter.

“You have to help her, but she’s probably more like me than any of the kids. She’ll get out her clothes the night before.”
