Little Harper seems to be a daddy's girl

David Beckham gushed his excitement over finally having a daughter last year and it seems he still hasn’t got over it.

The football ace, who famously released a gorgeous snap of him with his newborn girl, has revealed his thoughts about Harper in an interview with Elle magazine.

“I still think, ‘Oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl,” David said.

“It’s great. I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It’s how a baby should be. She’s so beautiful.”

David, who’s made it clear he’d love more kids, explained the difference between daughter Harper and his three sons.

“There’s no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it’s just different,” he said.

“When the [boys] are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they’re fine.”

“Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries,” David said.

The dad-of-four spoke heartwarmingly about Victoria’s role as a mother.

“She’s a great mum,” he said. “Everything revolves around the children, as busy as she is, and that’s what I love her for.”

“Well, there are many other things I love her for, but being an amazing mother is a very sexy quality,” David said.

Aw, David! Here at TB HQ we love David’s sensitive side.
