David Beckham: My Family Will Always Come First

David Beckham: My Family Will Always Come First

David Beckham graces the cover of L.A. Confidential in a Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

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?”

    David is sexy as hell and in that cover shot reminds me of either Clark Gable or Corin Redgrave [probably more of Redgrave but with darker eyes.} I may hate soccer but when a man talks about his family like that you have to respect him

    Yes, he “loves” his family so much that he cheated on his wife… *roll eyes*

  • Cookie-Cutter

    can’t he talk about anything else meaning besides his over-used vocabulary of ;wife , 3 boyz , soccer, excited?

  • boston61

    He is so deep. The truth is he looks like shit for 35. Good for 45. Lucky he could kick a ball. And, don’t get me going on the high heeled food hating idiot of a wife of his.

  • Jane

    A sexy man is quite different and it’s actually true that he cheated on his wife, who looks very insecure and afraid after that.

    “What if you so excelled at a sport, your name became synonymous with the game, your skills the stuff of legend? What if you were so talented, so charismatic that the unenviable task of growing your sport’s popularity in the world’s third-largest country fell to you? What if?”
    I really like the introductory paragraph! Well done David.
