Soccer superstar David Beckham is stressing out British fathers - because they can't live up to his high standards as a perfect parent.
The LA Galaxy star has reportedly put the pressure on normal dads who long to mimic his seemingly perfect life - with a shocking 85 per cent of U.K. dads worrying about failing their families.
In a poll carried out by British newspaper The Sun, Beckham came top of a list of fatherhood ideals due to his doting duties to his three young sons with Spice Girl wife Victoria; Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, five, and Cruz, three.
Worried dads say they are feeling pushed to follow the star's lifestyle, by keeping fit, dressing well, and becoming wealthy - and fear the unrealistic expectations set by celebrity dads may ruin their own marriages.
