Looks like David Beckham’s daughter, Harper, is the only one to have inherited his love for football.
During the episode of Friday’s Graham Norton Show, the iconic athlete admitted that his sons Brooklyn (19), Romeo (15) and Cruz (13) all dropped out of the sport.
“She loves it,” said Beckham, noting that his 6-year-old soccer star plays every Sunday. “Boys do not play anymore, which is heartbreaking.”
Proud father insisted he was only joking about grief – “it’s not really” – but it seemed Beckham really missed seeing his boys on the field.
“They have talent, but of course, none of them play anymore,” he said. “So, it’s up to Harper.”
The former Manchester United player has admitted he can be a little “enthusiastic” by encouraging his daughter aside. It looks like he’s protective, too. The retired athlete told a story about how he did not know how to react when a little boy came across Harper during a game.
“I looked around me other parents thinking” How to react? “Remember,” Am I a UNICEF ambassador … or am I Harper’s dad and I’m like “Really?” So, I’m giving up. ”
Looks like Harper’s family has fostered his love for the sport from an early age. In 2015, Beckham shared a photo of her 3-year-old daughter firing a goal and wrote, “Mia Hamm eats your heart.” Harper takes lessons from his brothers (oh and his father).
As for boys, it seems that they have developed passions in other areas. Brooklyn is interested in photography and has even launched campaigns for Burberry. Meanwhile, Romeo has an affinity for tennis, and Cruz loves music. He can even play guitar.
