Elle UK has chosen David Beckham to be the first man to grace its cover because—well, why not?

There are two versions of the issue, which hits news stands on Wednesday, May 30: The “rugged sex beast” edition, above, and a “sexy DILF” version, below.

“David Beckham is a national hero—he is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover,”  says Elle UK editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy. “This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike. Anyway, who doesn’t want to see a picture of one of the world’s most handsome men on the front cover of a magazine? It will be a collector’s issue.”

We’ll take two copies, thank you.
