David Beckham Joins Instagram, Immediately Posts Shirtless Selfie

What better way to celebrate his 40th birthday than with THE BEST Insta debut ever?!

David Beckham is the gift that keeps on giving. His mere presence on this planet would be sufficient enough for us, but he continues to bless us by appearing in jaw-dropping modeling campaigns and letting us all fawn over his beautiful family.

Because he’s such a selfless angel, the former soccer star has celebrated his 40th birthday today (May 2) by joining Instagram and immediately giving the people what they want: a shirtless selfie.

Becks accompanied his Insta debut with the sweet caption, “Good morning and hello! It’s great to finally be on Instagram, been a long time coming but I can’t wait to start sharing all my special moments with you. Thank you for all your birthday messages so far. Looking forward to a great day with friends and family x”

Clearly he’s already well on his way to Insta-addict status because he followed up with a slew of poolside pics from his b-day celebration in Morocco, where he’s vacationing with his kids and wife, Victoria. He even created his own #DB40 hashtag...what a pro!

Unsurprisingly, Becks has already racked up more than 2 million followers, and the count keeps growing. Looks like that rivalry with 16-year-old son Brooklyn is heating up fast.

Happy birthday, David, and thank you for this generous treat!
