Soccer stud David Beckham has his hands full these days with his brood of three boys, and with baby number four on the way with wife Victoria, things are just going to get busier. But Beckham made an important stop this week -- with his kids in tow -- at the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles.

Beckham dropped by the hospital with sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, to help them understand the hardships some families go through.

"It's difficult at times, especially for the parents of children that are ill and don't have long to live," Beckham said. "I think it's important that my children see that and they do. They're very respectful, and they love visiting hospitals."

He continued, "They always pick toys out that are even their favorites that they take down to different kids in different hospitals. The boys love doing that."
