It looks like the Beckham family is strongly considering moving from LA, California, back to their hometown of London, England.
Our friend Saphyre from Hello! Canada Magazine just dropped off their new issue. And I thought I’d share a bit of this story, since we love Harper Beckham, and it’s interesting to see Victoria constantly shuttling Harper to and from her fashion label’s home base across the globe. Indeed, according to the magazine’s sources, this is a major reason why the family’s considering moving back home. The commute is reportedly taking up “hundreds of hours a year”; it’s tough on Harper, who “needs to keep a specific sleep routine, . . . and [Victoria] misses her boys terribly.”
Another major reason is family. Although Victoria doesn’t want to take her older sons — Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, 7 — away from their school and friends, she thinks the presence of their extended family will hugely benefit them.
As a source for Hello! says, “Victoria feels that her kids are missing out by not having her and David’s extended families around them, especially as they get older, and would love for them to be able to spend more time together.”
“I love living in America,” Victoria has said, “but we are British, and we’re very, very proud of that.”
As for David’s career, according to the mag, he may have a “one-year-get-out clause” that will enable him to leave the L.A. Galaxy soccer team earlier than his contract states. If he gets the right offer from an European tour, he may just take it.
Apparently, we’ll know what the deal is in the next few weeks. Interesting.
