David Beckham's Ellen chat reveals scoop on Victoria, boys and knickers; Posh reacts surprisingly.
If David Beckham's underwear, abdominals and superlative soccer record haven't already put a spell on you, then today's appearance to kick off Ellen's seventh season will. Celebrity Love: Top 10 British Celebrity Crushes
In typical charming and sheepish fashion Becks dished on life with Victoria and their three sons Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, 7 and Cruz, 4. When Ellen asked David if he's really as shy in front of the media as he claims to be, he said only when he's on the soccer field and with Victoria and the boys is he completely at ease. The boys looked on amusingly from the audience with Posh, who cradled the two smaller ones on her lap as the camera panned to them.
David also updated Ellen that he and the family have settled seamlessly into life in Los Angeles (he and Victoria reportedly own an Italian villa worth $22 million in a private development near their best friends Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and Jay Leno). He said that the boys are very happy in L.A., they love their school, and are even speaking with American accents, which gives the Beckhams' family back in the UK a kick.
Then he revealed his notorious ten-rose tattoo, which he got this summer to commemorate his tenth anniversary with Victoria. He told Ellen that when it comes to special occasions, Victoria's usually very happy with the gifts David buys her, but that they usually just try to spend time together instead of flashing their cash.

Ellen whipped out David's famous Armani underwear ads, in which Victoria recently has posed with him. Ellen shocked the audience by geniously superimposing her head on Victoria's body so that Ellen and Becks were on display in an oily, passionate skin-on-skin embrace. The video cameras caught her ushering all five Beckhams outside while the boys laughed at Dad's half-naked photo with Ellen and Victoria held her hand over her mouth in astonishment.
On camera Ellen told her, "I hope you're not jealous." Victoria has indeed been said to be rather possessive of her hubs, especially after the bombshell rumors in 2004 that he cheated on her with his personal assistant Rebecca Loos and Australian model Sarah Marbeck. But she gave Ellen's audience an unexpected reaction by bursting out in laughter and hugging the Emmy-nominated talk show host.
