David Beckham’s three sons will not be following in his footballing footsteps, the star has revealed.
Beckham, 43, appeared on Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show” and was asked by the talk show host, 55, whether Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, and Cruz, 13, regularly take to the pitch like their sister Harper, 6, does.
The former Manchester United player explained, “Harper is playing every Sunday and loves it. The boys don’t play and it’s heartbreaking.
“They have a talent but it’s down to Harper now. I get very enthusiastic when watching her.”
Beckham went on to say that sometimes he has to stop himself from acting like too much of a protective parent.
He shared, “The other day a boy took her down and I had to think how to react with all the other parents watching me. Do I act like a UNICEF Ambassador or do I act like Harper’s daddy? In the end, I let it go!”

Beckham’s appearance also saw him open up about his new football club in Miami, with Norton quizzing him about whether or not he’d be making the move to the U.S. anytime soon.
The heartthrob insisted, “I’ll spend a lot of time there but the kids and Victoria are here.”
Beckham was interviewed on the U.K. talk show alongside “Deadpool 2” stars Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin and former “The Crown” actress Vanessa Kirby.
