We're basically taking it to mean that David Beckham will be stripping off even more in future.
The fit footballer told Esquire: "It's definitely got easier over the years [taking his clothes off for photoshoots], but when I was in New York, seeing a huge poster [of himself in his underwear] on the side of a building, that was quite daunting."
He continued: "I remember driving past there, and stopping and running out and taking a picture."
David went on to reveal how the pair keep their relationship going in amongst the four kids and hectic work schedules.
Ah, now that's more like it. Copyright [WENN]He said: "You have to find time to spend with each other. As much as we work hard and we love to spend time with our kids and that's our main priority, we make sure we go out for dinner once a week."
