Liv Tyler praises 'sweet' godfather David Beckham

Liv Tyler has revealed David Beckham is a "very sweet" godfather to her son.

The 38-year-old actress gave birth to her son Sailor in February and her partner David Gardner chose his best friend David to be one of the tot's godparents.

Liv - who also has 10-year-old son Milo from her marriage to musician Royston Langdon - has praised the retired soccer superstar for his involvement with Sailor.

In an interview on the 'The Jonathan Ross Show' - which airs on Saturday night (28.11.15) on ITV - she said: "He is very sweet, he gives very good presents. And very he's a real gentleman, he's a very elegant person so very sweet ... He loves being a father."

Liv also lifted the lid on what her dad, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, is like as a grandfather - revealing the famously large lipped singer can make a variety of animal noises.

She said: "We are very close with all of them - he's very sweet, it's just so fun for him, for all the grandparents to get to play. He's amazing at making weird noises with his mouth, animal noises, a lot of animal noises! He's very playful and funny and lovely, he's kind of like a magical wizard he has things in his hair and all sorts of jewellery and he's just very fun, not your typical grandfather."

Liv is loving having a baby again but couldn't bear to leave Sailor at home when she went back to work to film TV series 'The Leftovers'.

She said: "I'm working and I have the baby. I was filming 'The Leftovers' which is the show that I've been working on and about three months after I had him, I had to go right back to work and we originally last season shot in New York which was very convenient for me to be a good mother and be an actress and they relocated us to Austin, Texas, so he came with me."
