Beckham to Obama: Boxers or Briefs?

MANDEL NGAN/AFP/GettyImages(WASHINGTON) -- Boxers or briefs for the commander in chief? David Beckham knows the answer.

Soccer superstar David Beckham reportedly gifted the president 50 pairs of fitted boxer briefs from his own H&M line, making good on a promise to send Obama a, “big box of underwear” that the LA Galaxy star mentioned back in May.

The president and the British midfielder got buddy-buddy in May, when the LA Galaxy was invited to the White House after winning the Major League Soccer Cup. Obama ribbed Beckham for being both a soccer star and an underwear model.

“He is tough,” the president said of Beckham. “In fact, it is a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear. David Beckham is that man.”

After the good-natured jab, Beckham told EXTRA in an interview that he was going to send Obama, “a big box of underwear” as thanks for giving his products the presidential seal of approval. “To be in the White House was huge, I think, for myself. And to be given a little bit of a stick by the president was even bigger,” Beckham said.

Two months later, Beckham finally delivered on his promise -- a source close to Beckham indicated that Beckham did indeed mail the president a box of underwear. The package reportedly arrived at the White House over the weekend.

A representative for H&M could not be reached for comment on the details of the underwear shipment.

Beckham is a friend to the entire Obama family, it seems -- the soccer star will also be present at a Let’s Move! event hosted by the first lady at the American Embassy in London on Friday.
