Beckham: UK will always be home

David Beckham has spoken of his family's love of the Los Angeles lifestyle but said Britain would "always be our home".

LA Galaxy midfielder Beckham told Daybreak that Victoria and their three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, made the most of the sunny Californian weather.

He said: "We're really settled. We were settled from the day that we moved here. It's such a great place to live, such a great place to bring up the kids. We love London, that will always be our home without a doubt. We've still got a house there, we've still got all our families there.

"We miss that a lot, but we've lived here now for four years. To be able to pick the kids up from school and go to the beach or they can play in the pool. Last year, December 1, the kids were in the pool messing around. It is that kind of lifestyle. When the kids are as happy as they are that means you enjoy that."

However, Beckham remained tight-lipped about his future plans when his contract with the MLS club expires in just over a year.

He added: "I haven't thought what's going happen after that, as long as the kids are happy, wherever they are happy we will stay. We plan on staying here for a while, but we love going back to England as well."

The former Manchester United player joked he felt old sometimes in the mornings due to his injury, but his "three young energetic boys" kept him busy.

"Of course you have bad days but my boys get me out of it. If I have a bad day at training, or don't train well, then I come home, pick the kids up and I'm straight out of that mood."

He also revealed his sons had "total American accents" but he did not mind.

He added: "The boys are funny, I was putting Cruz in bed the other night and I said something to him, and he turned around and said: 'Daddy you're so English', and I was like 'so are you actually'. We laughed about that."
