David Beckham pretends his children haven’t received any Christmas presents every year.
Cruz Beckham – the 11-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham – has revealed that his dad goes through the same routine every December 25 by trying to trick his children into thinking they have not been left any gifts by Santa.
He shared: "We always wake up at 6am. My Dad says, ‘Wait, let me check if there’s presents downstairs.’ After that, he comes up and is like, ‘Oh…there’s none. We all have to go up to bed.’"
Cruz – who has brothers Brooklyn, 17, and Romeo, 14, as well as a five-year-old sister called Harper – recently announced he is to launch a debut single, ‘If Every Day Was Christmas’, in aid of charity.
David, 41, admitted he is "really proud" of his youngest son, who is raising money for Global’s Make Some Noise charity, which aims to change the lives of young people across the UK.
Speaking to the ‘Capital London Breakfast Show’, David said: "I’m really proud. I mean he’s having fun, he’s enjoying it, you know."
Victoria was part of the Spice Girls, who have sold over 80 million records worldwide and are the the best-selling female group of all time – but her son cited James Arthur and Nathan Sykes as two of his biggest inspirations.
Asked to name his favourite song of the moment, Cruz said: "Well I’d have to pick ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ by James Arthur."
Cruz was also happy to dish the dirt on his parents during a game of ‘Mr. and Mrs.’.
Asked which of his parents was more likely to swear, he said: "100 percent my mum!"
And then questioned on whether David or Victoria was more likely to embarrass him, Cruz replied: "Definitely my dad, he is so embarrassing."
David and Victoria are among the most photographed people in the world, but Cruz revealed that his mother takes considerably longer to get ready to go out.
He shared: "She takes 10 hours, my dad takes 10 minutes."
