David Beckham embarrasses his 15-year-old son Brooklyn by kissing him on the cheek and telling him he loves him in public.

The former England soccer player - who also has Romeo, 12, Cruz, nine, and three-year-old Harper with his wife Victoria - often leaves his eldest son red-faced by kissing him on the cheek and telling him he loves him in public.

Discussing Brooklyn's request to drop him off around the corner from his school, David said: "I wasn't happy about it because I'd got up at seven in the morning to take him to school so I dropped him round the corner, and as he was walking into school I opened the window and shouted, 'I love you!' to him.

"It didn't go down too well but it made him smile a couple of days later. Secretly I kiss him on the cheek, he doesn't really want too much affection but I still kiss him."

The 39-year-old star - who married former Spice Girl Victoria in 1998 - insists his kids are just like any others and even try and get out of going to school by feigning illnesses and injuries.

He explained: "Without a doubt, my children from time-to-time do get 'sore throats' in the morning, especially when there is certain things happening at school or their dad is going to play some game.

"They definitely try to get out of school. My son was playing football the other day and he hurt his neck and the physio came over to me and she said, 'He's fine but his first question was, "Do I have to go to school tomorrow?" '. It was Cruz. He's the cheeky one."

David - who has been a UNICEF ambassador for 10 years - recently launched his 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund which aims to help vulnerable children around the world and revealed his own kids are keen to get involved in the project.

Speaking on breakfast TV show 'Good Morning Britain', he said: "They totally understand that and they all want to get involved. We all want to protect our children, we all want to protect children in general but you can't hide things from children and you have to discuss when there are things happening around the world, they hear them so they want to know what's going on."
