David Beckham starting to sound American

The sexy soccer ace has admitted that he's begun talking like a Yank.

The LA Galaxy star has conceded that he's started using American slang in conversation.

'I catch myself calling my kids "dude" every once in a while, so there are a few words creeping in,' explained David. 'And using American words like elevator instead of lift.'

Since the 37-year-old signed for LA Galaxy, the Beckhams seem to have settled in the US.

The Beckham boys were recently spotted signing along to the American national anthem, Star Spangled Banner, at David's football game.
