David Beckham says the thing he most loves about his wife Victoria is that she is an "amazing mother".

The soccer superstar insists there are lots of things about the former Spice Girl that are attractive to him but none more so than watching the way she cares for their three sons - Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, seven, and Cruz, five.

When asked what he loves most about Victoria, he said: "There are so many things, I think the main thing is she's an amazing mother. To see her grow into a person with children - and she's become this amazing person with the children - that's one of the most attractive things about Victoria, and about any woman."

David, 35, also revealed the secret to his and 36-year-old Victoria's happiness is the fact they always make quality time for one another.

Speaking after he scooped the Choice Athlete: Male gong at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (08.07.10), he said: "We've been married 11 years - we've been together for 14 years - and we make it work. We make time for each other.

"We work hard as individuals, but our main job is being parents, our boys are our lives so our number one priority is our boys, but then we make time for ourselves we go for dinner, we go for romantic weekends and you make it work of course."
