Madge’s se­cret calls to Becks

The singer wants his ball skills

Heat (UK) - - Front Page -

When you’re Madonna, you’re used to get­ting the best of ev­ery­thing, and nat­u­rally she wants the same for her chil­dren. So, who bet­ter to call for ad­vice on im­prov­ing her son’s football skills than David Beck­ham?

The singer, who adopted 11-year-old David in Malawi in 2006, has been mak­ing se­cret calls to Becks to tap him up for his football knowl­edge. An in­sider tells heat, “Madonna called Becks to ask if he would men­tor David. He was flat­tered. She called him her­self – it was very non­cha­lant, one par­ent to an­other. Madonna joked that he couldn’t say no, be­cause he and David have the same name.” The in­sider adds, “Al­though Madonna and David aren’t close, their sons Brook­lyn and Rocco are good friends.”

Madonna, who is also mum to Lour­des, 20, Rocco, 17, Mercy, 11, and four-year-old twins Stella and Es­ther, re­cently moved to Lis­bon, so David could pur­sue a pro­fes­sional football ca­reer. He has joined the Ben­fica youth acad­emy, af­ter a suc­cess­ful trial at the Por­tuguese club in the spring, and he’s cur­rently liv­ing at the club’s youth acad­emy in the Lis­bon sub­urbs.

Becks, 42, has shown his en­thu­si­asm for teach­ing his own four chil­dren his beloved sport and was keen to help out. “David and Vic­to­ria are al­ways par­ents first,” our source adds. “So, the next day, David sent over a bunch of emails and phone num­bers for the best ex­tra train­ing avail­able, as well as camps that he rec­om­mended.” Nice one, Dave. n
