David Beckham has spent most of his life being an incredibly famous athlete and underwear model, but he’s quickly transitioning into his next career — begrudgingly silent father to teens — and he’s not taking it well. His oldest kid, Brooklyn, is 15, and the next, Romeo, is on the cusp of teen-hood. Then there are two more after that, all ready and willing to subvert any sense of identity dad might have once had.
So, how are things going over at the Beckham estate? “To be honest, I’ve become a taxi driver overnight with the kids,” he tells Jimmy Kimmel. “I’m literally an Uber driver now.” Literally? Wow. Poor guy. I wonder if he does airport runs.
