Just after his turn as a model, soccer stud James Rodriguez has now been named the sexiest man by People En Español.

The magazine went to the best source possible to learn what makes the athlete so sexy. Daniela Ospina, Rodriguez's wife and mother of their 15-month-old Salomé, explained what his best attributes are.

"He's a very attractive man," she said. "But what I most like is the way he is, his personality. It's what I really love."

Rodriguez's mom, Maria del Pilar Rubio, adds that despite all the attention that Rodriguez has received, he continues to be the same.

"What really characterizes him is his humility," she said.

Rodriguez is not the only new name on the list. There are nine others that join him on the sexiest list for the first time.

On the cover, Rodriguez wears a blue button-down shirt, but he is also seen in a black one in a video shared by the magazine. The 20-second spot features Rodriguez posing for the camera, and though he doesn't speak, it does show a bit of his personality. At one point, he is very concentrated on posing, but when he sees the camera, he cracks a smile and gives a thumbs up.

Rodriguez recently launched his own "J10 James" underwear collection with Bronzini Black.

"We chose James Rodriguez to be the face of Bronzini Black because he is a man of style, with confidence in himself, and is surprising at all times," said Martin Nova, the marketing vice president of the Exito Group.

The Colombian athlete was signed to Real Madrid this summer. He recently spoke about working with Cristiano Ronaldo, who he said he gets along with.

As for what to expect for him, Rodriguez said he will just be playing whatever position the coach thinks best fits him.
