David Beckham is flying home from the United States to be with his father, who is seriously ill in hospital. Ted Beckham, who is in his late 50s, has suffered a heart attack. Ted was taken to Whipps Cross Hospital.

The Los Angeles-based soccer star, 32, dropped everything and dashed to the airport as soon as he was told the news.

"His father has had a heart attack and is currently being treated in [the] hospital," the athlete's rep confirms. "David is flying back to be with him. He is obviously incredibly concerned and wants to be with him."

The elder Beckham, 59, from east London, suffered chest pains Wednesday evening. A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman confirms that its dispatchers were called and arrived just after 9:20 p.m.

Ted Beckham underwent an operation to unblock his artery, his son's rep tells PEOPLE. A spokeswoman at the London Chest Hospital says the elder Beckham is in "stable" condition. He is reported to be in the intensive care unit.

Ted Beckham is divorced from the soccer star's mother, Sandra. Besides David, Ted is also the father of two daughters, Joanne and Lynne.
