Over the last few years, it has become increasingly, er, fashionable to be a house dad. Now David Beckham the most famous man on the planet has joined our ranks - and he loves it.

Seven months after retiring from professional football, David - who is worth £190 million - has revealed he is now a proud 'house husband', spending his time cooking for his children and doing the school run while their mum Victoria focuses on building her fashion empire.

In an interview with Jonathan Ross, to be aired on Saturday night, David said he 'loves' being a house husband, adding: "I've been lucky."

He said: "I've always been able to take the boys to school in the mornings and pick them up and make them dinner and things like that. So I do even more of that.

"I'm able to take all three of the boys to school and then I take Harper to her school for a few hours and then pick her up. I'm kind of like a driver at the moment, I'm always in the car."

The Beckhams moved to London with their four children at the end of last year as he wound down his footballing career.

Describing Victoria as his 'rock', David thanked her for supporting him during his career, but said he was now happy to do 'normal things' like going to the pub while she goes to work.

He said: "Victoria's success has been really incredible and, it's simple, she works really hard. She's a great mother, of course, and she looks after the boys and Harper and that's our priority and her priority, but she works really hard.

"She's a hard working mother and the success that she's had, she deserves."

David revealed that their children - Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, eight, and two-year-old daughter Harper - are already taking after their parents, with Harper showing an early penchant for designer clothes and the boys insisting they want to get tattoos like their father.

He said: "[Harper] gets her outfit ready the night before, and then she gets up in the morning, we go down to get her ready and she changes her mind. So then, by this time, we're in a rush. The boys are arguing over what breakfast they want, and I'm trying to get them ready as well.

"But then I'm in the room with Harper trying to pick out outfits and anything which I pick out, which I think looks great, she puts back in. She's two and a half. "She just says, 'No.' But anything that she picks out, she looks amazing in, so it's easy."

He added: "[The boys have] already said they're having tattoos done. And I said, 'Well, be different, don't have any tattoos'. And they said, 'No, we're going to have one. We're going to have, 'Mum and Dad'. So I can't really say no to that."

David has amassed tattoos across his chest, back and left hand in addition to the extensive work on his arms.

Earlier this year he said: "I have 32 and I don't regret any of them. They all have a meaning.

"I think that's what's important about tattoos, if they have a meaning you'll never regret them."

Victoria also has a number of tattoos including symbols running up the back of her neck and on her wrist.
