David Beckham topless for Elle. Nuff said.

David Beckham. Topless.

We could quite frankly leave it be there.

Hot footie star David Beckham always causes a bit of mayhem when he poses without his shirt on (think H&M, billboards and Victoria Beckham ball-cupping tweet).

And now he's gone and driven us all mad again by posing for ELLE magazine's latest cover.

He's the first ever solo male cover star for the fashion mag, and is sprawled across a massive 11 pages (that's errr well a lot of eye candy minutes).

The shot above shows DB emerging from a pool in LA in nothing but Dior Homme jeans. Swoon.

And as if that wasn't meltworthy enough, the hunky British star has a right old gush about baby girl Harper.

He said: "It's great. I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It's how a baby should be. She's so beautiful.  There's no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it's just different.

"When they (boys) are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they're fine.

"Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries.... I still think 'Oh God, I can't believe this, I've got a girl. And to see the boys with her it's incredible.  When they walk into the room, her little face lights up."

*dies*

When it comes to describing himself, Mr Beckham is a lot more tongue-tied. He said: "How would I sum myself up? I don't know, I prefer other people to do that. Erm...a little bit shy.  I don't know what to say. I hate describing myself."

How about: F.I.T?
