Yahoo Style's interview with David Beckham focused on the latest iteration of his H&M collection, now with Kevin Hart. That is, until the conversation shifted towards the topics David tends to gush about: Victoria, Harper, and his sons. The soccer player revealed that he buzzes his sons' hair "from time-to-time." When it comes to Harper, though, absolutely no one is permitted near her with the intention of a haircut. He recalls Victoria suggesting, "Maybe we should cut Harper's hair" to which he decisively responded, "No! We need to grow it. Do. Not. Touch." David's will has prevailed. No one has ever cut Harper's hair.

The chat moved from family hair care to the business of briefs. When asked what the craziest rumor he's ever heard about himself, he responded quick:

Oh, easy. I heard that I only wear each pair of my underwear once, and then I throw them away. Someone phoned me up, and was like, "someone just said you refuse to wear your underwear more than once."  Come on, really? That's not even possible. Not true.

To finish off the real dream of an interview, Beckham revealed that his favorite things in Victoria's closet is also her most comfortable. He likes her best in jeans and sneakers, specifically their son's Converse, which they share, of course.
