‘Becks admits to being an embarrassing dad’

‘Dad, you’re so embarrassing’ – a line many fathers will have heard millions of times.

 

Speaking about his son’s plans for his 16th birthday next month, the former England football star says Brooklyn is so embarrassed by him that he often asks to be dropped off around the corner from school.

He said: “He’s at the age now where he does not want me to drop him off outside school. He does not want too much affection but, yes, I still kiss him.”

Beckham added: “He said ‘Can you drop me round the corner?’ … As he was walking in to school, I wound down the window and shouted ‘I love you’ to him. He was not happy.”

The eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham marks his Sweet Sixteen on 4 March.

But instead of a big birthday bash Brooklyn will be spending his big day enjoying separate dinners with his friends and family.

It seems it’s not just David Beckham that is classed as an embarrassing father.

Earlier this week, Sir Paul McCartney was caught doing the dreaded ‘dad dance’ during the Grammy Awards.

The former Beatle was caught in a hilarious moment as he was seen clapping and bopping along, only to realise he was being filmed and promptly sat back down.

That was of course in embarrassment, after no one else got up to join him.
