Beckhams 'don't agree on kids' fame'

David and Victoria Beckham are reportedly disagreeing on their son Brooklyn's future.

The former soccer star and his fashion designer wife are parents to Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, ten-year-old Cruz and Harper, three. The boys have all been making a splash at A-list events recently, attending the recent Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards without their famous parents.

It's claimed Victoria and David don't see eye-to-eye on that though.

"His argument is that Brooklyn can do those things when he's older. David cringes if anyone talks about his kids being famous - it's the one thing him and Victoria can't seem to agree on," an insider told British magazine Heat.

"David's not really into the idea of kids earning huge sums of money and having armies of adoring fans. He just wants them to have a normal upbringing and get an education. Fame's tough and can swallow kids up if they're not careful. David's really proud of Brooklyn, but, at 16, he thinks he should be focusing on school and exams."

However, Victoria sees no problem in Brooklyn becoming a star at all. His brother Romeo has already modeled for Burberry as he's following his mother's footsteps and making fashion his passion, so Victoria thinks finding a niche for her eldest could be a great idea too.

"Vic thinks that Brooklyn working is great, as he's learning all about money and how hard it is to earn. His school work isn't suffering and, as she sees it, the kids are famous anyway, so there's no point blocking them from accepting jobs that both she and David would have given their front teeth for at the same age. After all, how can you be 'normal' when you're mum's a former Spice Girl and you dad's one of the most famous footballers in the world? " the source said.
