Beckham admits his tattoo obsession has rubbed off on his kids
David Beckham has admitted that his three sons are already planning their first tattoos – despite eldest, Brooklyn, being the ripe old age of ten.
After Becks showcased his latest tattoo this week – ten roses on one arm to symbolise the decade of marriage to Victoria – his children are now eager to mimic their famous footballer dad with inkings of their own.
Speaking in an interview on U.S programme, NBC’s Today Show, the LA Galaxy star admitted: ‘One of them said to me recently: “How old do I have to be before I get a my first tattoo?”‘
‘I was like “A lot older than you are now.”‘
Old romantic Beckham now plans to get two ‘tattoo sleeves’ for each arm, however Posh – who is a fan of the body art – has reportedly told him to put a cap on tattoo parlour visits, saying he now has enough.
You can’t fault his commitment though Posh, with one tattoo Hebrew message reading: ‘I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.’
In the same interview with TV host Matt Lauer, the show presenter admired Becks’ super-smart tailored grey suit so much so that when filming wrapped, he was promptly presented with the suit as a gift from the footballing ace.
Following the interview, David appeared from his dressing room in jeans and a t-shirt, and handed the suit over to Lauer.
‘I admired his suit, he came down in jeans and gave me the suit off his back,’ Lauer said.
‘I am selling it on eBay are you kidding me. His underwear is back in the dressing room.’
The 34-year-old sports star confessed that the last six months spent at Italian club A.C. Milan were some of the hardest, being separated from his family for eight weeks at a time.
‘As a family, as a father, it was the toughest time since I have had my boys,’ he said
‘They came out to see me every eight weeks for a week but I hate being away from them for an hour let alone that amount of time. It is great to be back in California and back with my wife and my boys.
‘I got to speak to Victoria (on the computer), which I enjoy, then the boys would run in and out and say hi before running back out to play again.’
