Soccer legend and international celebrity David Beckham glows with pride as he shares a photo of himself with his three sons, Brooklyn Beckham, Romeo Beckham and Cruz Beckham. All three are first-rate athletes, though whether they might match the exalted status of the famous father is a tall order.
Indeed, people who have never seen a soccer game in their lives know the phrase “bend it like Beckham” — and the Keira Knightley movie that took that as its title. Beckham notes in his pic that the Beckham boys are “taking over QPR” — that’s Queens Park Rangers, the English Premier League team where Brooklyn Beckham has trained. The foursome all wore Manchester United jerseys to kick around at QPR’s field, as David Beckham’s greatest days on the pitch were in these red shirts.
The great bender of free kicks never had the thick Maradona or Pele sized legs that people often associate with pro soccer players. But his sons evidently take skinny legs a step further, no doubt having some of mom Victoria Beckham‘s famously skinny genes contribute to their physiques.
