David Beckham says there's already pressure on his children to "bend the ball" like their father.

The football player is raising sons; Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and one-year-old daughter Harper with wife Victoria.

And he tells Esquire magazine that there is already expectation for his brood to live up to their famous father.

"There's a lot of pressure on them," he told the publication. "They go for try-outs and people automatically think David Beckham's son is going to bend the ball in the top corner at the age of six."

"They're very confident kids. They take it in their stride."

The hunky athlete also spoke about stripping off to his underwear for advertising campaigns which appear on huge billboards.

"I remember driving past [a big poster] and stopping and running out and taking a picture and this guy walked past me and he was like, 'Oh, my God! Have you seen your d*** up there?' Or something disgusting like that. That was funny."

The 37-year-old also revealed the key to his 13-year-marriage to his fashion designer spouse.

"As much as we work hard and we love to spend time with our kids and that's our main priority," he said. "We make sure we go out for dinner once a week."
