David Beckham has given a very sweet insight into life with his children.

The former footballer and fashion designer wife Victoria are parents to four kids: Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 9 and little Harper, three.

Now, if we had Becks as a dad we would think it was very cool indeed. We'd totally be showing him off and inviting friends round to her house all the time… not so for the Beckham kids, it seems!

David chatted about his children on Jimmy Kimmel Live in the US last night.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, dashing David admitted his older children are definitely at that stage when he's starting to be considered an embarrassing dad. Aww!

"The younger ones love me taking them to school. But I've noticed my son Romeo, who is twelve, has started when I go to kiss him to turn his cheek away."

But cheeky Becks won't let him get away with that!

"So, I will pick him up and give him a big bear hug and kiss him in front of all of his friends!"

Becks joked that he's now become an Uber driver.

David went on to say that eldest son Brooklyn has been asking him to stop the car just around the corner from school so he can get out and walk the final bit.

"He did it five times on the trot so as I was driving around the corner and he's walking into school I opened the window and said, 'Brooklyn, I love you!' Obviously it didn't go down so well!"

David added: "Victoria did have to remind them the other day, 'You do have quite a cool dad' but it didn't seem to make much difference!"

David still gets utter adoration from Harper, although admits she recently surprised him with a comment.

"I had just bathed her. I got her out and was toweling her down and she said, 'Daddy, I love you so much but I don't like that you're so chubby.' I didn't think I was!"

David said he was enjoying retirement as it meant spending more time with his family, even if he has now essentially become a taxi driver thanks to their hectic schedules.

"I'm literally an Uber driver now. From seven in the morning I have four drop offs at four different schools. I get that done in an hour and a half. I pick my little girl up at twelve, the boys at four. The boys then train at a soccer academy every night of the week so I'm busy until 9.30pm then I'm at home."


But he insisted he loved every minute of it: "I've been playing football the last 22 years and not always with the family so it's nice to be home, spend time with them and be their taxi driver."
