David Beckham Would Love to Move Back to the UK

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Clothing, Style,

David and Victoria Beckham with kidsDavid Beckham would love to bring his family back to live in England soon.

The father of four children - Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper - with Victoria Beckham, revealed that he and his fashion designer wife are always tempted to uproot from their Los Angeles base and return to the United Kingdom.

"At the end of the day, I always miss London - just having pie and mash with my Mum or Dad and visiting my Nan," he said.

However he admitted that the schooling of his kids - who are being educated in a California facility - is their current priority right now. The LA Galaxy player has been traveling the world recently, collecting the London Olympic flame in Greece and helping Princess Anne deliver it to Cornwall for the start of the torch relay.

"Whether I continue to play or I don't ... at the moment I have no plans on finishing at the end of this season. I want to play for as long as possible and then we'll see," he said, speaking about his career.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Clothing, Style, Photos, Features,

Victoria BeckhamVictoria Beckham knows she doesn't appear happy in pictures.

The fashion designer - who is married to soccer star David Beckham - is famous for looking demure and hardly smiling for photographs, but insists she is happy in her daily life.

"Yes, I created this persona and I'm very different from that. I don't feel like I have to scream and shout about it - I know I am a happy person. So I don't get upset when people comment on the fact that I look quite miserable all the time. But people think I am. And you know, sometimes I think the same thing when I look at the pictures."

Victoria, 38, has plenty to be happy about, with the four children she raises with David - Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven and ten-month-old daughter Harper - and her successful, self-titled fashion line.

David and Victoria to Sell Beckingham Palace?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Rumors,

David and Victoria Beckham with their daughter HarperDavid and Victoria Beckham are planning to sell their British mansion.

The couple bought the $28.7 million estate - dubbed Beckingham Palace - in Hertfordshire shortly after tying the knot in 1999. Having relocated to Los Angeles in 2007 so David could play football for LA Galaxy, the Beckhams - who are worth more than $255 million - reportedly want to sell off their properties in England and France and focus on life in America.

"David and Victoria have been wanting to sell up for a couple of years now but the timing was never right. They didn't want to lose money, putting their homes up for sale during a slump in the property market. So, after getting it valued two years ago, decided to hold off until now," a source said.

They are believed to have lavished $28.7 million on the 22-acre home - which they bought for $4 million - so that it now features a petting zoo, indoor and outdoor pools, studio, gym and tennis courts.

David Beckham Talks Like an American

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Celebrity Babies, Style,

David and Victoria BeckhamDavid Beckham is starting to talk like an American.

The British-born footballer - who moved to Los Angeles with wife Victoria in 2007 to play for LA Galaxy - admits he is losing his London twang.

"I catch myself calling my kids 'dude' every once in a while, so there are a few words creeping in. And using American words like elevator instead of lift," he said.

Since departing the UK, 37-year-old Victoria has left behind her Spice Girl roots and forged a successful career for herself as a fashion designer. And according to David, their sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz have inherited their mother's sense of style:

"They're at the age when they want to wear their own things. You've got the oldest, Brooklyn, and he'll wear his soccer shirts and a T-shirt. Romeo is the fashion one, so he'll go in and pick up skinny jeans and a vintage T-shirt and a funny hat. Cruz loves Justin Bieber, so anything he's got Cruz wants, like the big high-tops with skinny jeans. They all have their own style."


David Beckham’s Daughter Has Expensive Taste

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Celebrity Babies, Style,

David Beckham with daughter HarperDavid Beckham admits he's going to have to earn lots of money to keep daughter Harper dressed in designer outfits. The soccer star has recently signed a new two-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy and the handsome athlete admits it's a relief because fashion designer wife Victoria likes to dress the six-month-old tot in expensive clothes.

"I've obviously got three amazing boys and with boys you can throw them around and Harper is obviously my first girl and I'm more careful. Still now, I'm changing her diaper and I can't believe I've got a girl. Everything about her is feminine, the way she eats, the way she moves, the way she looks. I love having a girl, but I'm glad she's got three older brothers and a dad to look after her. Her wardrobe is incredible already. I'm glad I've got a two year contract," said David, speaking in a chat for Google+.

Another reason David, 36, decided to re-sign with the LA Galaxy was because his family are happy in America and he says they will always come first: "I didn't take it lightly as I had offers from other clubs around the world and at 36 you don't expect it. But it was best for my family. We love living in LA at the moment, we love living in America and we have adapted to the culture and at the moment we didn't want to leave. When you're married and have children your priorities totally change. We've got three amazing boys and a little girl we have to look after and it's all about them. They come first."


Hairdresser David Beckham

David BeckhamUnlike his attractive celebrity peers, David Beckham cuts his own hair.

The soccer ace has sported a number of daring hairstyles during his career, including a Mohawk, and a shaved head, but insists he doesn't spend a great deal of money on his hairstyles, and always makes  a spur of the moment decision on whether change his locks.

"People try to read too much into it. Over the years they've said I've spent $3,200 on a hairstyle, which I've never done. Either a friend has cut it or I do it myself. Sometimes, I wake up and I'm bored of it, I want to shave it off. It literally is a spur of the moment decision. And I don't think of anything apart from whether I am happy with it."

The 36-year-old hunk - who is married to fashion designer Victoria Beckham, with whom he has four children - is currently happy with a quiffed hairstyle, and although he could change it any moment, he insists there are certain styles he will not revisit: "I'm getting older so I can't pull off the Mohawk or the ponytail anymore. The way I've got it at the moment, my wife likes it, my kids like it, so I'm happy with it. But that could all change in the morning."
