David Beckham hates being away from children. The English footballer has admitted that it bothers him about the distance which is between himself and his family when he is so far away training and in matches. Beckham has four children fourteen year old, Brooklyn, ten year old Romeo, eight year old Cruz and nineteen month old Harper along with his wife Victoria.
He remembers back in day how tough it had been when he played for the Italian team A.C. Milan for six months in 2009. David is at this time living in France, he plays for Paris Saint-Germain but his family lives in London. He has expressed to the new UK issue of OK! magazine: ”The biggest thing is my family. We don’t like moving around, we don’t like unsettling the kids.
”As a family, as a father, [Milan] was the toughest time since I have had my boys. They came out to see me every eight weeks for a week, but I hate even being away from them for an hour, let alone that amount of time.”
Although the Beckham’s are well to do, he still tries to teach his children the values of hard work and ambition as he would like them to make their own way in the world like their parents did. He said:
”It would be easy for our kids to sit back and not work for anything, but they’re not like that. They’re as competitive as Victoria and me.
”We’re very lucky with our boys – they want to win. They want to work at something. They know they’re values. That’s the way we’ve brought them up so far, and that’s the way we’ll continue to bring them up.”
It seems as if his sons are already taking after their father, David loves having a daughter and like the way she interacts with her brothers. He added: ”She’s so beautiful. There’s no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it’s just different.
”I still think, oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl. And to see the boys with her, it’s incredible. When they walk into the room, her little face lights up.”
