David Beckham Rushes to Father's Side

David Beckham Rushes to Father's Side

David Beckham rushes to catch a flight back to England after receiving word of his father’s heart attack.

The father of the soccer stud, Ted Beckham, 59, was rushed to East London’s Whipps Cross Hospital early Thursday. Sources said Ted DIED en route but was resuscitated by medics. Ted was then transferred to heart specialist.

A source close to Becks said: “David’s dad suffered a heart attack. It was all very sudden. This is a huge shock to David who is now preparing to fly home.”

David‘s father’s name is also David but he is known as Ted, short for Edward, his middle name. Mr. Beckham is divorced from David‘s mother, Sandra. The couple also have a daughter, Joanne.

Best wishes to the Beckham family!

i always love his jeans and shoes.but not soo this one.and he is not really handsome why Victoria who is a real Posh love this a.sshole?but i like his family.they really need a doughter.

He never spoke to his Dad for years because his dad wrote a book about David growing up, his football etc. It was a good book but I guess him and Posh didn’t get any money from it which caused problems. Hopefully David will realise now that money and falling out with your own father isn’t worth anything in the world. Hope his Dad will be ok.

#6 = WTF are you talking about? Posh is a *****. she will never leave David because without him where would she be now?

#4 – I agree. Both the Beckhams no matter what, always manage to dress up for the cameras.

#8=Posh was famous bfore marry with this a.sshole.she is the best always and without David!

they shouldnt take pictures of him!

Get well soon Ted !

#7 it wasnt because of the money, it was because Ted never told David that he was writing a book about him and ted also used personal pictures of david in the book. around that time to, ted was divorced from sandra so david was not that close to him.

anyway get well soon Ted

OMG!! Get well soon Ted.

Oh No….Get well soon Ted!!!!
Becks has 2 sisters, Lynn (older & Joanne (younger).

Hope he gets well soon

Well I hope David realises that blood is thicker than water. If it wasn’t for his dad he wouldn’t be where he is now as it was his father’s devotion to Man U that got him into football in the first place. Victoria and her family have always looked down on David’s family, maybe they weren’t posh enough, not that she was posh in the first place but hey ho that’s vanity and illusion of grandeur for you. Best wishes Ted.

Ted is the most important person in Becks’s career.
I bought his book “MY SON”, he is very proud of his son.
Becks has bad relationhip with his dad after their parents divorce in 2002. I wish his relationship back as they used to be.

Good news from BBC, Ted is in stable condition now!

Best wished to the family but just cause I’m slightly anal just wanted to add that Becks has 2 sisters (so his mum & dad have 2 daughters, Joanne & Lynne) and also I think he and his Dad had sort of rekindled their relationship a bit in the alst few years as I know his Dad visited him out in Madrid a few times & was certainly there when Real won La Liga…anyway, again hope everything goes ok with his Dad.

#18 Lavgirl – your post is spot on! He owes all his footballing career to his dad. His dad obviously loves him to bits. His family seem to be on the back burner, while Posh’s seem to be right there at the front.

1- He speaks to his father, Ted was in madrid a lot with him, the last months he was at real Madrid.
And ted was also in LA not too long ago + he at least attented 2 Galaxy games.

2- How is that dress up? a jean, a t-shirt and a jacket, do you people live in a cave or under a rock, because where i live (paris) that’s called casual.

3- David said many times, that he wouldn’t be where he is now, without his parents, and that he owes everything to them.

i’m so sorry ,hope he gets well soon

Good to hear that he’s staalized.

Ted and David have worked out their issues for a while now, he’s at most of David’s games etc, he just doesn’t get photographed or sit with the family, probably because of the divorcce.

Your father has a heart attack and intrusive, annoying strangers snap pics of you at the airport (for money) then post them online (more money exchanged). DISTURBING. Even MORE disturbing are people now critiquing his appearance or relationship with his family.

What a world this is.
