Plus…former Man United star on how he likes to embarrass his sons!
Former Manchester United, Real Madrid and England midfielder David Beckham has revealed he was recently called fat by his own daughter, according to the Daily Mail.
The 39-year-old explained how he was giving his daughter Harper a bath before she insulted him about his weight, which certainly goes against his image of him during his playing days and resulting modelling career on the side.
He said: “I was bathing Harper and had got her out and was toweling her down when she said: “Daddy I love you but I don’t like you, you’re so chubby!” I didn’t think I was but…..!”
Beckham also spoke about how his kids are embarrassed of him despite his fame, success and recognition as one of the finest midfield players in the modern era in a glittering career for United, Real, England and in Major League Soccer with LA Galaxy.
In an amusing anecdote, the former Three Lions captain says he likes to taunt his oldest son Brooklyn when he drops him off at school – with his 15-year-old keen not to be seen with him.
“He asked me to park around the corner and he would walk round but I followed him and opened the window and shouted, ‘Brooklyn I love you!’.”
