David Beckham: three-year-old 'Harper calls me chubby'

David Beckham regularly has fans swooning over his sculpted body and ripped abs, but it seems his three-year-old daughter Harper couldn't disagree more. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night, David opened up about his family life and how his youngest calls him "chubby".

As he took his seat on stage, the retired football player and H&M model caused a meltdown with the audience whooping and cheering in delight.

After Jimmy joked that he wasn't looking great, David laughed it off, saying: "Funny you should say that.



David Beckham joked that he has become a taxi driver to his children overnight

"My little girl turned around to me the other day – I had just bathed her and I towelling her down, and she said, 'Daddy I love you so much. But I don't like you, you're so chubby.' I mean, I didn't think I was."

The sports star, who is celebrating his 40th birthday in May, went on to explain that following his legendary career in football, he now focuses his energy on looking after his four children.

"I've become a taxi driver overnight with the kids," said David. "I'm literally an Uber driver. I take them from seven in the morning to schools, I have four drop offs, four different schools."

"To be honest, it's great," he added. "It's nice to actually be at home and spend time with them and be a taxi driver. The younger one obviously loves me taking her to school. The two smaller boys, they love it, apart from my middle son Romeo.

"He's 12 and he's just started. As soon as I take him into school I go to kiss him and he turns his cheek, so I will then pick him up and give him a bear hug and kiss him in front of his friends.

"And then my eldest Brooklyn, who's 16 in March, he says, 'Dad, park around the corner.' And then he gets out and walks around the corner. He did it to me the other day after doing it five times on the trot, so I'm driving round and he's just walking into school, and I open the window and go, 'Brooklyn I love you.' Obviously it didn't go down so well.

"Victoria did have to remind them the other day that actually they've got quite a cool dad, but it didn't seem to make much of a difference."
