“We’ve got a great family base. We’ve got an amazing three boys, and we protect them with every ounce of energy that we have,” the soccer star, 34, said Monday on ABC’s The View.
His wife, Victoria, 36, who was in the audience, said the couple have no immediate plans to expand the brood – though it’s not out of the question. “I think one day, if we’re blessed to have more children, it would be amazing,” she said. “It’s a lot having three boys. So, we’re just enjoying the boys at the moment. But who knows, one day?”
David’s dreams of playing in his fourth World Cup for England this summer were dashed by an Achilles injury last month, and he needed a cane to walk to the View stage. But the setback did allow him to return to L.A. – and sons Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 7, and Cruz, 5 – after a stint playing in Italy.
“Obviously [the injury] is frustrating, but I get time to spend with the family, which I haven’t done in the last few months,” he said.
In general, the family is very comfortable in L.A., where David is a member of the Galaxy. “We love England. London is where we’re both from,” he said. “But this is a new phase of our life that we’re really enjoying. We’ve been in Los Angeles now for three years, and we’re so happy there. We’re not going to be moving back anytime soon.”
And the kids, he added, are fitting in just fine. “They’re just three little normal boys who are enjoying school,” he said.
