David Beckham Doesn’t Play Favourites With His Sons On The Soccer Field

David Beckham is enjoying being a hands-on dad now that he's retired.  The celeb dad chatted about teaching his three sons (Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz) tough lessons and what they're trying to teach their baby sister Harper! 

David dished on being fair when it comes to coaching his sons' soccer games.  “Romeo went to make a tackle in the penalty area, missed the ball and took the young kid down and I had to give a penalty.  As we were running back … Romeo was jogging behind and he turned around to me and said, ‘I can’t believe you did that to me, Dad.’ He was crying — it was a lesson for him.”

Beckham shared that the boys are having a good time with their little sister, but it's not always sitting well with dad.  “She went into one of the rooms the other day and they’re all giggling and whispering and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And they said, ‘We’re teaching Harper a joke,’ I’ve heard some of the boys’ jokes over the last few months and it’s not something I really want them teaching Harper. I said, ‘What joke is it?’ And they said, ‘It’s the elephant joke.’  I said, ‘You cannot teach your 2½-year-old little sister a joke like that! Thankfully, she doesn’t know the whole joke.”

David says that despite Harper only being two, she's got a very particular sense of style already.  “[Harper] gets her outfit ready the night before and then she gets up in the morning, we go down to get her ready and she changes her mind.  Then I’m in the room with Harper trying to pick out outfits and anything which I pick out, which I think looks great, she puts back in. She’s 2½!”
