If you were wondering what David Beckham is like as a dad, you’re in luck: His wife, Victoria Beckham, just opened up about the couple’s life as mom and dad to their four kids. Sure, some of it is totally not relatable (we don’t know about you, but we never saw sculptures of our fathers in bronze) — but other aspects of the Beckhams’ life is actually…well, kind of normal.
“David is watching the kids and we kind of…we swap,” the former Spice Girls member says during a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance. “When I’m at home, he’s away so one of us is always there looking after the kids.”
David and Victoria share children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. “I’ve got so many kids,” Victoria jokes. “So many kids…it’s less about parenting and more about crowd control when it gets to that many.”
“All four kids bring all their friends over to the house. When we come home at the end of the day, there’s always lots and lots of children,” she jokes. “And I think the main focus is making sure that they all leave empty-handed and the the art is still on the wall.”
Something else we learned during this interview? The artist formerly known as Posh Spice is really, really funny.
Victoria opens up about how her children reacted when they saw the bronze statue of their father at Dignity Health Sports Park. “It was really exciting for us to go and take all the kids and for them to take selfies by it and comment on the size of Daddy’s bottom in bronze,” she says.
The statue is in Los Angeles, which Victoria says feels like home for her children. Maybe it’s because LA is the kind of place where trick or treating on Halloween earns you a snow cone from Justin Bieber? Victoria opens up about her family’s holiday run-in with the pop star.
“[Justin] just asked David what he was doing [on Halloween]…and he said ‘come over to my house, we’re giving out snow cones,” Victoria reveals. “They all went round to Bieber’s house and he gave them all snow cones. He’s such a nice man!”
Oh, and another takeaway from this interview? You should never use cocoa butter on your face. Victoria Beckham — who recently launched her own beauty brand — says so.
