In a world exclusive joint interview with HELLO! magazine, David and Victoria Beckham have hit back at the critics who questioned their relationship after an escort girl made false claims against them.
“We’re soul mates,” Victoria said. “Sometimes people throw s*** at us but we get through it. You deal with it, or you don’t. You go into a marriage knowing there are going to be ups and downs. We’re in the public eye so we have more to deal with than most. We accepted that years ago. It’s just about us and the family.”
The couple also tell HELLO! how they keep their romance alive.
“We always make time for each other,” David said. “We have a ‘date night’ every Wednesday.” Victoria adds: “We catch up on what we’ve missed on the TV. We watch Keeping up with the Kardashians, and we love Melanie B’s new reality show.”
The Beckhams also talked about how they love their life in their adopted homeland of Los Angeles, and reveal how their three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, are settling in – even learning sign language so they can communicate with a deaf friend. However, they immediately ask to be taught some rather inappropriate words! “Of course the first thing Cruz, who is five, wanted to learn was how to say ‘I have wind’ and the ‘s’ word,” Victoria reveals. “He also wanted to know what other swear words were!”
Romeo, meanwhile, has just received his first mobile phone – and has been using it to send messages at inappropriate times.
“We got a message from Tana Ramsay saying ‘We don’t mind but Romeo’s been phoning the house in the middle of the night asking to speak to our kids,” Victoria explains.
In addition, David and Victoria reveal the nicknames they have for their three children and how they tease their dad about his English accent. Victoria also talks about her style icons, and explains how she deals with the celebrity clients who are queuing up to wear her fashion designs.
