Our handsome and hilarious David Beckham just turned the big 4-0 (happy milestone birthday, DB!) and to commemorate the occasion, the awesome celeb joined Instagram and posted his first pic, and it’s about as gorgeous a selfie as you would expect from The Beckham, check it out:

That gaze! That beard! Those tatt sleeves! Perfection with a capital P.

Beckham took the pic while vacationing at a 5-star resort in Marrakech, Morocco. He captioned his first Instagram entry with the following:

“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.”

As some of us obsessive celebrity Instagram followers, Beckham’s son Brooklyn recently reached 1 million followers on Instagram, and when he posted a video sharing the good news, David Beckham popped into frame to cheekily remind his son that he had 50 million plus followers. The thing is, those social media followers were on Facebook, Beckham wasn’t on Instagram at the time. Now that he’s joined, he’s actually still beating his son at the social media game, but by a much smaller margin, DB currently boasts 2.2 million followers on Instagram

Apparently there are no hard feelings between father and son, as David Beckham also recently posted a sweetheart pic of the two on his brand new Instagram account, calling his son “the real boss of the family!”:

Seriously, even though Beckham JUST got his account, he’s been crushing it on Insta, check out more of his killer pics after the jump!

Getting into the hashtag game, he captioned this shot #DB40

Then there’s this cute-boots shot:

He captioned this one “I feel a very lucky man” which isn’t really, like, grammar, but you guys, it’s David BECKHAM and he’s wearing a REALLY GREAT HAT and you can literally see beams of sunlight filter through this shot, everything is fine.

Happy birthday #DB40, way to nail Insta on your very first try!
