The soccer legend's baby girl is growing up too soon for the doting dad.
10-year-old Harper Seven, recently told her famous dad David Beckham that she's crushing on someone just ahead of Valentine's Day and he's not too pleased! Beckham teased his stone-cold reaction on Instagram with a black-and-white photo of himself looking a little peeved. "Roses are red🌹 Harper seven mentions she has a crush & this is daddy's face 🤬🤬🤬," Beckham joked on Wednesday, adding, "but it's ok she said daddy you are my only valentine ❤️."
Harper makes regular appearances on the soccer legend's Instagram account and it's no surprise that he absolutely adores his youngest child. The father of four – who also shares sons Brooklyn, 22, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 16, with wife Victoria – posted pictures of the daughter-dad duo taking a morning stroll outside in the chilly air. He captioned the sweet snap: Daddy & Princess Leia had a lovely walk this morning.
Last year, David Beckham and Victoria Beckham celebrated Harper's 10th birthday with sweet tributes to their daughter on Instagram. "Happy 10th birthday Harper Seven, the most beautiful young lady inside and out. Kind, loving, caring and sweet. Our everything 💕we love you so so much x Can't believe you are 10 years old today!! 😇 x," wrote Victoria, 47, while sharing a throwback video. Beckham in turn begged the almost-tween to stop growing up so quickly. "Happy 10th birthday to my pretty lady ❤️ to the girl with the biggest heart and the sweetest smile ❤️ we love you so much big girl ❤️ please stop growing .. Love you #HarperSeven ❤️," he wrote.
Speaking to The Father Hood, David previously opened up about becoming a dad "at a very young age." "I think you mature quicker with kids. You have more important things in life to worry about than your everyday worries, and life becomes all about the kids," he said back then. "I think that's what you learn as a father... you become less important and it's all about your children." The sports star added, "'Never give up, no matter what.' That was one of the things that my dad would always say to me. If I got a kick in a game, I'd look over to him and he'd be like, 'Get up! Get up! Don't show people that you're hurt!' There was a steeliness that he kind of instilled into me on that side," he said. "It actually made me stronger as a person."
