David Beckham’s son is named after Tom Cruise

He’s totally checking out his ass

Writer Grant Wahl devotes an entire chapter to the friendship between David Beckham and Tom Cruise in his upcoming book The Beckham Experiment. Wahl claims Cruise has influenced “every major decision” Beckham has made since the two met in 2003 — including the name of his third son, Cruz. Because why wouldn’t you name your son after a guy you’ve known for an entire year? From the New York Daily News:

“I must admit, when [Victoria and I] met Tom, I remember turning around to Victoria and saying, ‘Cruise is a great name, but we could spell it different,'” Beckham told Wahl for the book, due from Crown Publishing on Tuesday. “And also, living in Spain, Cruz is spelled the way it is in Spanish. So that’s why we got it.”

It sounds like David’s memory might be a little fuzzy on this matter. When he came up with the name Cruz for his son, David should have remembered “turning around” not to Victoria but to Tom and saying “use more lube” “mind the stepchildren” “Cruise is a great name.” It’s nice to know how open-minded Victoria is with David’s sentimentality towards his ex-lovers. My future wife would probably be furious if we ended up naming our kid Adriana, Alessandra, or Used Gym Sock.
