“In my career there’s many things I’ve won, and many things I’ve achieved, but for me my greatest achievement is my children and my family. It’s about being a good father, a good husband, just being connected to family as much as possible.” – David on his beautiful family.
“It would be easy for our kids to sit back and not work for anything, but they’re not like that. They’re as competitive as Victoria and me. We’re very lucky with our boys: They want to win. They want to work at something. They know their values. That’s the way we’ve brought them up so far, and that’s the way we’ll continue to bring them up.” – David on fatherhood.
“We’re all learning sign language because one of our friends is deaf. So, of course, the first thing Cruz, who is 5, wanted to learn was how to say, ‘I have gas,’ and the ‘s’ word. He also wanted to know what other swear words were.” – Victoria on her youngest son.
“Hmm …. well, you know when you get a TV you get a manual? Well, there isn’t one for motherhood. I’m constantly trying to figure it out and questioning whether I’m doing it right. But I’m so proud my kids. They are very well-mannered. We’ve always been very strict with the kids. That’s the way David and myself were brought up. But they’re free spirits as well. They laugh. They joke. They have fantastic personalities. I love hanging out with them.” – Victoria on motherhood.
