Happy birthday, David! The fantastic Mr Beckham turns 37 today, with plenty of reasons to celebrate.

Not only is he ELLE’s first solo male cover star, but he’s also the force behind a major bodywear collection for H&M, an advocate for British sports in our Olympic year, and a doting father of four. True, football, his day job, matters too—but we’re more interested in all of the above than any Match of the Day segments, no matter how Beckham-ful.

Although you’ll have to wait until the beginning of June for our #BeckhamELLE issue to hit newsstands, we’re pleased to share a teaser video from the shoot with you now in honour of our star’s birthday.

Subscribe to ELLE by 16 May to receive a limited-edition cover and a special video message that David filmed for our subscribers. The first 50 subscribers to sign up can look forward to receiving a David Beckham fragrance along with the issue.
