David Beckham, a strict fatherAugust 5th, 2012 - 8:21 am ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, Aug 5 (IANS) Soccer star David Beckham and his wife Victoria want their four children to be “down to earth”, and so they want to be as strict as their own parents were with them.
The couple is parents to Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 9, Cruz, 7, and 12-month-old Harper.
“They’re normal kids. And that’s because me and Victoria have kept our roots and a very English, down-to-earth living for the kids. We want to give them the same morals we had growing up, the way our parents brought us up, which was in a very strict way,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted David as saying.
Although the Beckham family has not lived in Britain for over a decade, London-born David, who currently lives in Los Angeles, and has previously been based in Spain and Italy, feels it is important to stay in touch with his roots.
“I’ve lived out of England now for 10 years but it doesn’t change anything. I’ll never forget where I’m from, never forget my roots. It doesn’t matter where I live, I’m English, simple as that. And I want our kids to have an English upbringing,” he told Esquire magazine.
