David Beckham thinks his wife Victoria finds it "difficult" to watch her eldest son, Brooklyn, 16, going out on dates.
The 41-year-old fashion designer's oldest child, 16-year-old Brooklyn, has been linked with a number of models and actresses but Victoria's husband David Beckham has admitted she is having trouble processing it.
He said: "I think it's easier for me than Brooklyn's mum, you know? To see her little boy go out and date ... Obviously for mums I think it's slightly more difficult with the boys but obviously once Harper [their daughter] starts [dating] ... I don't even want to think about that at the moment."
The 40-year-old former soccer star - who also has four-year-old Harper, 13-year-old Romeo and ten-year-old Cruz with the former Spice Girl - wants his children to be happy first and foremost and to follow their passions.
He added to Australia's The Project: "It's one thing I always tell my kids. If they're passionate about something, they need to go for it."
Meanwhile, Victoria is keen on her daughter pursuing dance as a hobby rather than soccer.
He said: "After having three boys that obviously do want to play football she wants to be able to have one of our children that wants to go and do stuff with her, like ballet or tap [dance]. At the moment Harper plays tennis.
"I think Victoria's had 16 years of sitting on cold Sunday mornings on the sidelines, watching the boys. She'd like to sit indoors and watch Harper either play tennis or ballet or tap. But if ever Harper does want to go and play football, Victoria will support her."
