He may only be 17-years-old, but as one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, Justin Bieber has a lot of clout; even in the households of famous families like the Beckhams.
In an interview with New!, the pop phenom chats about his relationship with David and Victoria Beckham, their children, his thoughts on baby Harper‘s name, and plans for starting his own family by the time he’s 25.
Here’s what Justin had to say…
On the Beckham boys wanting to name the new baby after him: “I saw that on Victoria’s Twitter and thought it was great. In the end, they ended up naming their daughter after a character in Selena’s show [Wizards of Waverly Place], so maybe they can name their next one after me!”
On meeting the Beckham boys: “Yeah, they were great kids. Selena and myself met them at the Teen Choice Awards and they were really cool. I have said to David that when we are both free I will come and give them a private concert at their house if he gives me some private soccer lessons!
David and the boys are really cool and, even though I don’t know Victoria well, she is really sweet to me. I have sent the boys a few signed gifts, and every time she has always made sure she’s thanked me. They seem [like] a really sweet, genuine family.”
On his plans for marriage with girlfriend, Selena Gomez: “I can’t tell you when, but I don’t want it to be when I’m old. In this industry, people can put things like marriage and kids off until later on, but these are the things that are more important.”
On becoming a dad…sooner rather than later: “I really would love to be a young dad, and even if I have my first kid at 25, that still gives me lots of time to concentrate on my career. Selena loves kids, she is really great with them.
On his traditional values: “I know we are living in a modern world, but there is a nice way to do things. I am very traditional in that sense. I want the wedding and then I want the kids after that.”
