David Beckham’s 4-year-old daughter says she wants to do what daddy did when she grows up

Ben Kenyon

When your dad’s a footballing legend David Beckham and your mum’s a global fashion designer Victoria Beckham, the world’s your oyster.

But if anyone was expecting Harper Beckham to follow in her mum’s fashwan footsteps, you’d be wrong.

The 4-year-old, who has three older brothers Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, has told her parents she wants to be a footballer like her pa.

Speaking to Good Morning America, former Spice Girl Victoria said her sons are all football mad – but little Harper taking up the sport was a ‘dagger through the heart’.

“She loves fashion, you know, as all little girls do… but she loves sports.

“She’s a tomboy, she has three brothers. She said to me the other day: ‘Mummy I think I want to play football.’ (It was a) dagger through the heart.

“I have three boys who want to play football, come on, let one of them want to be in fashion.”
