Victoria Beckham praises her kids as Kelly Ripa gushes over son Brooklyn after sandwich backlash

He was mocked on social media last week for ‘assembling’ a breakfast sandwich in an awkward morning television segment on the Today show with Hoda Kotb. 

But Victoria Beckham praised her son Brooklyn Beckham on Wednesday, as well as her other three children, saying they all ‘work hard’ as she appeared on Live! with Kelly and Ryan. 

Host Kelly Ripa brought up the topic of Brooklyn, 22, as she asked how the family was doing and began to praise the budding chef.

Kelly, 51, continued, gushing: ‘He is just lovely and it’s a sign that you and David put the work in, and I know that you have put the work in.’

Victoria, 47, then replied: ‘You know what, they’re all good kids, they’re happy, they work hard, you try to bring children up to be just really good, kind humans, and they’re good boys – and Harper is sweet and adorable and lovely.’

Kelly also heaped praised on Victoria, saying she would love to have her as a mother-in-law, as she could give the best marriage and fashion advice, referencing Brooklyn’s engagement to actress Nicola Peltz. 

But Victoria replied: ‘They’ve got to figure it out for themselves. They’re both very, very happy. They’re working hard. We’re there to support them.’

The fashion designer – who was promoting her new beauty line Victoria Beckham Skincare – also gave a cheeky glimpse into her 22-year-marriage with husband David Beckham. 

When Ryan Seacrest brought up that Victoria had said they are ‘competitive’ she quickly pointed out that she only meant when they are in the gym together. 

‘In the gym, we’re very competitive,’ she said. ‘We fight over the weight vest when we’re planking. We’re very competitive!’

Awkward: Victoria’s son Brooklyn’s questionable culinary skills were not mentioned

Viral: Brooklyn began trending last week when he made a breakfast sandwich on the Today show

When asked what David’s secret is to looking young at 46 – Victoria revealed that he is also a fan of her new skincare range, and plugged her favourite item from the range – called Cheeky Posh. 

Last week, Victoria’s son Brooklyn set social media ablaze as he appeared as a guest chef of the Today show.

At the start of the segment, Brooklyn was seen telling viewers about dad David’s love of food, before waxing lyrical about his ‘favourite’ cast-iron skillet, which was already filled with pre-cooked sausages and bacon rashers.

He added that his love of cooking began to flourish during quarantine, when he began posting videos of himself making different dishes on his Instagram account.

‘I’ve always loved food and obviously when quarantine hit I just really started to get into it,’ he explained.

‘My fiancee (Nicola Peltz) started filming me and I started posting it and it’s just something I love doing.’

Brooklyn then began preparing the sandwich ingredients – and it was here that viewers’ online mockery really took off, with social media users blasting everything from his hatred of ‘runny eggs’ to the lack of butter on the bread.

‘Brooklyn Beckham went on tv to show his culinary skills and cooked……a breakfast sandwich! I am done!’ one person wrote on Twitter, as another person added: ‘Why in the f*** is Brooklyn Beckham on my TV cooking a basic a** breakfast sandwich?????’

The photographer and model shared several ‘tips’ during the preparation of the sandwich, revealing that he likes to cut his sausages down the middle so he can cook the insides, and explaining that he uses his fingers to poke the egg yolks so that they cook up and don’t stay runny.

‘Brooklyn I can’t believe you never left the egg runny!!! You just ruined a good sandwich,’ one person tweeted in response to his egg-cooking technique.
