David Beckham: 'My wife finds it difficult to see our son Brooklyn dating'

Fashion icon Victoria Beckham is having a hard time watching her eldest son Brooklyn as he starts dating, according to her husband David.

The couple's 16-year-old rang in the New Year with French model Sonia Ben Ammar, also 16, and earlier this month (Jan16) he posted a sweet photo of the teenagers engaging in a sweet embrace on a beach on Instagram.com.

He has also been romantically attached to actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who he met up with earlier this week (beg18Jan16) while she was in London promoting her new film The 5th Wave.

And, according to his superstar dad David, mom is not feeling too good about seeing her little boy wooing young ladies.

Speaking during a chat on Australian TV show The Project, the former soccer star and model said, "I think it's easier for me than Brooklyn's mom, you know? To see her little boy go out and date..."

He can empathize with his wife, because he can't stand the thought of the couple's youngest kid, daughter Harper, dating when she's older.

"Obviously for moms I think it's slightly more difficult with the boys but obviously once Harper starts (dating)... I don't even want to think about that at the moment," he joked.

Brooklyn is growing up before his parents eyes and his dad recalls that when he was the teen's age, he was well on the way to living out his soccer dreams and had left home to pursue them in Manchester, England.

And he tries to encourage his kids to chase their dreams - just like dad.

"It's one thing I always tell my kids," he emphasised. "If they're passionate about something, they need to go for it."
