David Beckham: My Family Will Always Come First
Here’s what the 35-year-old soccer star had to share with the mag’s real estate and design issue:
On his wife Victoria Beckham and their three kids, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz: “I love my career, but my family will always come first. We’re happy to be having another baby. Our three boys are so excited; they’ve been asking for a baby for a while now, so they were happy when we brought the news to them. We’re lucky enough to have three beautiful boys, three healthy boys. To have another one on the way, we feel very privileged. It’s going to be a big year.”
On what the family likes to do in L.A.: “That’s one thing we love about America, about living in L.A.: There are so many different things you can do. Before we came here, the boys loved playing soccer, and that was kind of it. But now they’re into baseball, basketball, skateboarding and American football.”
On playing in the next World Cup: “It would be nice. You know, it’s in 2014; I’ll be 39 by then. I’m getting on. I would love to play another World Cup—it’d be amazing—but that’s not my goal at the moment. My goal is to stay as healthy as I can, to stay as fit as I can, to win things, to be successful—and then, who knows?”
