The recently retired soccer star says the hardest thing for him is being away from his family when he has to travel for work.
"It's only for a short time, but it's difficult being away from the children every single day. ... They understand that daddy works hard.
And what about his feelings on having a daughter after three sons?
"To have a daughter is a whole different story. I'm not saying I love my daughter more. It's just that boys are independent."
He and wife Victoria Beckham have three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, and one daughter, Harper.
