No more and no less than Idris Elba.

He is the 33rd Sexiest Man Alive, after the spicy list of Hollywood’s celebrities, including Mel Gibson in 1985, The Rock, David Beckham, and Blake Shelton from last year.

The news about Idris being the sexiest man on earth dropped on Monday night’s episode of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Elba’s comment on the news was:

 It’s amazing! I’m really, really happy with that. Thank you so much PEOPLE magazine for making me sexiest man in the world. My mum is going to be very, very proud.

I mean, even my mom is proud of you and your alluring appearance, Elba!

Elba’s reaction to PEOPLE about this year’s pick was hilarious, just as he himself is. He said, “I was like, ‘Come on, no way. Really? Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today.’ But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.”
