It hasn't even been a week since David Beckham celebrated his 40th birthday by creating an Instagram account, and not only is he treating us to a steady feed of eye-candy, he's also breaking records. According to Instagram, Beckham is the first ’grammer to ever reach one million followers in just one day, beating out previous record-holder Emma Watson (no hard feelings, Emma!). After just three days, the father of four built his following to a whopping 5.5 million.
