Cruz Beckham Reveals Christmas Charity Single, Offers a Glimpse Into Family Life with Spice Girl Mom and Soccer Legend Dad
Is the Beckham household about to discover its second pop star?
Cruz Beckham, the 11-year-old son of former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, 42, and soccer legend David, 41, showcased his first ever pop release “If Every Day Was Christmas” on Capital FM in London Wednesday morning.
If everything goes to plan, the catchy Christmas tune — which has already received the backing of Justin Bieber — will raise some much needed funds for the children’s charity Make Me Some Noise, which supports disadvantaged youngsters across the U.K.
“It’s amazing. It’s two of my favorite things: singing and Christmas!” Cruz said on the Capital FM breakfast show. “It’s amazing to put that together — and the money is going to charity.”
Cruz – who shares his west London home with brothers Brooklyn, 17, and Romeo, 14, plus 5-year-old sister Harper — then went on to reveal a few of the Beckham family holiday traditions.
“We always wake up at 6 a.m.,” he added. “We go downstairs and my dad says, ‘Wait, let me check if there’s presents downstairs.’ After that he comes up and he’s like, ‘Ah, there’s none. We’ll all have to go back up to bed!’ “
Dad David quickly agreed “Every year, ever year!” before adding, “I’m really proud. I mean he’s having fun and he’s enjoying it.”
Cruz’s revelations about his mom and dad didn’t stop there either. For the record: Victoria is “definitely” more likely to fall asleep in front of the TV, while dad David is “definitely” the one who’ll embarrass Cruz in public.
Unsurprisingly, fashion designer Victoria also takes far longer to get ready. “My dad takes about 10 minutes,” said Cruz. “My mum takes about 10 hours!”
As for the thorny question of who is more likely to say a naughty word in public? That honor falls to Victoria – whose former bandmates Mel B, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton have recently reunited under the band name of GEM to record the single ‘Song for Her.’
“100 percent my mum,” said Cruz.
Yet despite taking his first tentative steps into the music world – and possibly challenging his mom’s band mates in the charts — it has to be remembered that Cruz is still only 11.
Like all schoolboys, he has far more important things to worry about than pop stardom. What are the biggest frustrations on his young mind? “When Manchester United lose and when my parents tell me to do my homework!” he says.
