The 36-year-old soccer star - who has sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz, as well as six-month-old daughter Harper with wife Victoria Beckham - admits he occasionally feels his years are catching up with him, but often has a youthful attitude.
Asked if he is beginning to feel his age, he said: "I actually didn`t know how to answer that question to be honest, but there are some mornings I feel twenty years old, and some mornings I feel my age."
David and his family are based in Los Angeles but the sportsman admits they all miss their home country.
Speaking on UK TV show `Daybreak`, he said: "We`re English, so of course we miss London, we miss England. We`re very patriotic about our country as everybody knows, and we love going back there. But right now, we`re very happy living in LA."
David has recently signed a two-year contract extension to remain with Los Angeles Galaxy and he admits his decision not to accept an offer to move elsewhere was down to keeping a stable home life for his kids.
He said: "The whole family had a contribution in a way. We made a decision based on where our children are happy, where the place is that they`re most stable. We were aware of all the other offers, and at my age, to be offered some of the contracts that I did get offered - you know, you have to take them seriously and you have to look at all options.
"But like I said, our family have been so happy in the last five years living in Los Angeles and we wanted that to continue."
