This year’s Sexiest Man Alive tells PEOPLE “I never feel I’m sexy,” but we know most of the world disagrees. And while wife Victoria says that “around the house, David is just David,” he also has extra-sexy qualities (yep, he’s beautiful on the inside, too!) that make her love him even more. “He’s a really good person,” she shares of the 40-year-old retired soccer star. “He’s a really great dad, he’s very kind, charitable and he inspires me every day.”
He brought sexy back nine years ago, but this year, JT got even sexier when he became a father – in fact, we dubbed the 34-year-old our Sexiest New Dad. “I’ve never slept less and dealt with more poop,” he tells PEOPLE of life with son Silas, 7 months, “and been SO excited about it!”

True, he didn’t fulfill any fantasies after backing out of the role of Christian Grey, but the 35-year-old Brit still cruised into hearts with his role (and epic finale moment) on Sons of Anarchy. Up next for the actor? The role of King Arthur in 2016’s Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.
