Everybody in the pool! David Beckham launches swimwear line for H&M

 

Let’s put aside all this soccer stadium talk for a moment. David Beckham has other pans in the fire, and they’re hot.

Sweden pop retailer H&M just announced that the chiseled-as-all-get-out Englishman has added swimwear to his David Beckham Bodywear range, hitting stores May 22.

The collection — boardshorts, swimshorts and tight-fitting trunks — is said to focus on fit, performance, comfort and style.

“The success of my Bodywear collection at H&M has been fantastic, so I'm thrilled to be introducing these great swimwear pieces ready for the summer, said Becks in a statement. “We've worked hard to create new classics for men.”

And for women: The father of four will appear in a campaign for the launch shot by British shutterbug Glen Luchford, with images of Beckham, in all his tattooed, bare-chested glory.

Didn’t we just make your day?
