  • David Beckham opens up about what his wife and children mean to him in a candid new interview.

    David Beckham cemented his status as Britain’s biggest hearththrob and most adorable family man when he gushed about his wife Victoria and children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper in a recent interview.

    The 38-year-old former England captain opened up about his close-knit family at the digital book signing of his latest self-titled publication, David Beckham.

    During the live Facebook broadcast, the former footballer spoke about the role his wife and adorable brood have played throughout his career, revealing that he had always aspired to become a young father.
    ‘Even at 21 years old I always wanted children at a very young age’, doting dad David admitted. ‘When I met Victoria we both knew that we wanted quite a few children and we knew we wanted them pretty fast. I wanted my children to live through my career with me.’
    Becks continued: ‘[Family are] the best. It’s what kind of makes everything real for you. I love doing what I do, but there’s nothing better than going home and sitting with your little girl and your boys. Those things are so special.’ Swoon.
    The handsome H&M designer even opened up about how he liked to unwind after a long day – by reading to his four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.
    ‘Harper just love fairies,’ he revealed. ‘She’s all about fairies and princesses so I’m reading fairy books at the moment.’
    Seriously, can this man get any better?
