Strict dad David Beckham
Aug 4, 2012, 15:01 GMT
David Beckham is a strict father.
The soccer star and his wife Victoria want their children - Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and 12-month-old Harper - to be 'down-to-earth' so try to instill in them the values they were brought up with by their own parents.
He said: 'They're normal kids. And that's because me and Victoria have kept our roots and a very English, down-to-earth living for the kids.
'We want to give them the same morals we had growing up, the way our parents brought us up, which was in a very strict way.'
Although the Beckham family have not lived in the UK for over a decade, London-born David - who currently lives in Los Angeles, California and has previously been based in Spain and Italy - thinks it is important to stay in touch with his roots.
He told Esquire magazine: 'I've lived out of England now for 10 years but it doesn't change anything. I'll never forget where I'm from, never forget my roots. It doesn't matter where I live, I'm English, simple as that. And I want our kids to have an English upbringing.'
