David and Victoria Beckham showed up in full force on Sunday, April 26th 2015 to show their support and congratulate their son Romeo James on finishing the children’s 3-mile race at the London Marathon. The 12-year-old was running in aid of the UNAIDS and the Unicef 7 fund. Brothers Brooklyn Joseph, 16, and Cruz David, 10, were also in attendance to show their support.
It seems Romeo is quite the little sportsman too. He’s recently been accepted into Arsenal’s football academy and is an “exceptionally” talented tennis player. He recently attended a 10-day tennis camp and had plenty of praise from coach John Johnson.
“I’m not sure his parents realise how good he is. He has a lot of talent and very good hand-eye coordination. I’m going to have a meeting with his mother about it to reinforce that.
“Romeo has a natural swing and is very enthusiastic, he just loves it. He kept telling me and I could see how focused he was.”

Victoria Beckham appeared on Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, April 23rd 2015. Whilst sitting down for a chat the fashion designer explained that while 3-year-old Harper Seven does enjoy wearing dresses she is also quite the tomboy.
“She’s a little tomboy. She loves to wear little dresses, but then she loves to put her football boots on and get in the garden with her brothers and have a bit of rough and tumble, which I think is great.”
The 41-year-old, who is also mum to Brooklyn Joseph, 16, Romeo James, 12, and Cruz David, 10, with husband David Beckham, said:
“And the boys are great with her. All the kids are amazing. I mean, they’re really good kids… they work hard at school. They’re happy, they’re funny.”
Despite having such famous parents, the former Spice Girl says 16-year-old Brooklyn still works for his money.
“He’s worked in the local cafe washing up dishes for the past two years, which I think is great. You know, for me and David, we work a lot, but the kids are everything to us.And we’re very, very present. And I think it’s important that the kids have a good work ethic and try to help other people as well.”

David Beckham has said that he found talking about the facts of life to eldest son Brooklyn Joseph, 11, rather “uncomfortable“ so he left it up to wife Victoria to do the explaining.
“Brooklyn’s noticed he’s getting attention from girls and he likes it, so we had the sex talk. I had to walk out of the room because Brooklyn’s looking at me out of the corner of his eye , and kind of laughing. I couldn’t take it.”
David and Victoria are also parents to Romeo James, 8, and Cruz David, 5.
