Becks’ boys tease him over his English accent

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

LONDON - David Beckham is often teased by his three sons because of his accent, reveals the football star.

Although Beckham is now settled in Los Angeles with his family, his accent still shows that he’s a London boy at heart and his sons laugh at him saying, “Daddy, you’re so English.”

Soccer legend revealed he and wife Victoria are happier than ever living in Los Angeles with their kids and said they have been there for so long that their kids have all gone native.

“They’ve got full-on American accents now but I don’t care. It makes me laugh when we go home and we see the parents and grandparents and they are like, ‘What’s happened to them?” the Sun quoted Beckham as saying.

“The boys are funny. I was putting Cruz to bed the other night and I said something to him and he turned round to me and said, ‘Daddy - you’re so English’,” he added.

The star further went on to explain about his love for native language as he said, “I have lived in Spain, Milan and Manchester but I have never lost my East End accent and never will.”

The 35-year-old has no plans to move back to England when his five-year contract expires next year.

“We’ve got no immediate plans to come back. My contract ends in just over a year and I have no plans after that yet - but things change really quickly,” he said. (ANI)
