The Beckham family will share intimate details about their lives in an upcoming Netflix documentary series. The series titled “Spending All Our Money” provides a glimpse into David and Victoria Beckham’s family dynamics.
In the documentary, David Beckham opens up about his relationship with his younger sister Joanne. He reveals how he used to tease and torture her when they were children. “I was harsh on Joanne when we were young. I’d always try to get her into trouble,” confesses David.
The former footballer also touches upon his bond with his eldest sister, Lynne. According to David, Lynne acted as a protector for him and Joanne when they were kids. “Lynne was the one who looked after us. She still tries to mother me now,” says David fondly.
David’s mother, Sandra, features in the documentary as well. She discloses that David was a cheeky child who often landed in trouble. However, he was also her favourite son. “David got away with everything as a boy. He knew he was my favourite,” admits Sandra.
David’s wife, Victoria, likewise makes appearances in the series. The former Spice Girl discloses that she shares a close friendship with David’s sisters. She especially bonds with Joanne over parenting tips. “Joanne’s got three boys like me, so we swap advice,” states Victoria.
The documentary provides glimpses of Joanne and Lynne’s personal lives, too. Joanne discloses her financial struggles as a single mother of three boys. “It’s been tough juggling three kids and bills as a single mum,” she reveals.
Meanwhile, Lynne opens up about her battle with cancer. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2020 but has now recovered after treatment. “Cancer was the scariest time of my life, but I’m in remission now,” shares Lynne.
The Beckhams have held back from doing lengthy interviews and reality shows in the past. However, they finally agreed to do this intimate documentary series.
According to David, he wanted to show fans an authentic side of his family. “I wanted to pull back the curtain and show who we really are,” he explains.
The former footballer also wants to alter public perceptions about Victoria. He feels the media misunderstands his wife. “I want people to see the funny, kind side of Victoria,” remarks David.
Victoria likewise wants to change opinions about herself and David. “We’ve always been portrayed in a certain way. It’ll be nice for people to see us as a real family,” she comments.
The fashion designer adds that having cameras document their lives made the family bond stronger. “Doing this brought us all closer together,” says Victoria warmly.
The Beckhams allow Netflix to film every aspect of their lives for the series. Viewers see them having dinner, going on vacation, discussing careers and parenting.
Intimate family moments like Victoria’s missing David while he’s away and David’s reuniting with his kids after returning from work trips are also captured. “The little things mean the most to us,” remarks Victoria.
Overall, the documentary provides an authentic, never-before-seen look into the Beckhams’ lives. It depicts their close family ties, jokes, and even arguments.
The Beckhams hope sharing their authentic selves will make them more relatable. As David puts it, “We’re just like any other family.”
Spending All Our Money is set to release on Netflix next month. It promises to be an eye-opening insight into one of the world’s most famous families.
