Harper Beckham is the true "daddy's little princess!"
That David Beckham is a doting dad is not an unknown fact. On multiple occasions, he has revealed how his kids are his and wife Victoria's priority. In fact, the couple's Instagram accounts are a delight for new-age parents who give importance to hanging out with their kids and being a part of their world.
While he absolutely adores all his four children, he is much more lenient with his only daughter, Harper. He recently appeared on The Ellen Show and while he was talking about his daughter, his eyes twinkled and his face lit up. He revealed that he could still be a little strict with his sons but with his daughter, he has no control over his emotions.
All of eight and the youngest of his children, he confessed that he has never said no to her for anything except one time when he denied one of her requests and she was on the verge of breaking down. He then immediately decided to never do that to her again because he couldn't see her breaking down. How adorable is that!
When asked if she turns him to mush, he was quick to agree. "She does. The boys obviously give me a little bit of stick as they know that any question that they ask that they know I will say no to, that they have to ask her to ask me. I can't say no to her. I think I only said no to her once and her bottom lip started shivering, and I was like never again," he said to Ellen.
According to the proud papa, Harper is good at football too. He continued to say that she is both very girly and athletic because she plays football and loves it. "She's amazing, she's a princess with Victoria, obviously she's a big mummy's girl but also she's a big daddy's girl which I love. I think she's the best. She is athletic and she enjoys it."
When asked if any of his children are musical he revealed that third son Cruz loves to play the guitar and also plays the mandolin. He recalled an incident when he didn't know what a mandolin was until Cruz took him to buy one.
While both David and Victoria try to give them all the opportunities and privileges in life, they also want them to understand the value of things and also set boundaries. In an interview with Telegraph, he had said, "We have always led by example, in terms of the way we treat our children, with the way we look after our children, the way we love our children. But we are very strict parents. We want to bring them up as closely as possible to how we were brought up because you have to give them manners, you have to give them boundaries and our children definitely have that."
The retired footballer continued, "Their upbringing is a lot different to my upbringing so I think there is always a kind of fear factor, I mean the first day you have kids, you constantly worry. It's the most wonderful thing in the world but you are bringing children into a world where you really have to protect them. They are very privileged and they have a lovely life, and I want to protect that and to protect them from anything that goes on outside the family."
