Fallon also brought up Beckham’s wife, Victoria, and the Instagram posts she has shared mocking her husband’s endless building.

“It’s before I had kids, I grew up making LEGO when I was eight or nine years old,” Beckham explained. “Actually I continue it and Victoria always laughs at me, she’ll come down at like two o’clock in the morning and I’ll be trying to finish a piece off. She posted something the other day and I think she said because it was like 11 years and above, she was like, ‘Really? You are still up at two o’clock in the morning doing 11 years and above LEGO?’”

Despite the teasing he receives from his spouse, the famous fan explained: “It calms me when I am making it.”
