David Beckham: 'I'm picking up an American accent'

David Beckham has revealed that he has started to lose his British accent. The LA Galaxy footballer, who moved to Los Angeles with wife Victoria five years ago, said that he finds himself using American terminology all the time.



Beckham told The Sun: "I catch myself calling my kids 'dude' every once in a while, so there are a few words creeping in. And using American words like elevator instead of lift."

He also revealed that sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz have become more expressive with their sense of fashion since living in the US, saying: "They're at the age when they want to wear their own things.

"You've got the oldest, Brooklyn, and he'll wear his soccer shirts and a T-shirt. Romeo is the fashion one, so he'll go in and pick up skinny jeans and a vintage T-shirt and a funny hat.

"Cruz loves Justin Bieber, so anything he's got Cruz wants, like the big high-tops with skinny jeans. They all have their own style."

Two years after relocating, the Beckhams reportedly started taking elocution lessons in a bid to boost their US career prospects. Around the same time, David admitted that the children were all developing "really American" accents.
