‘Harper’s Skills Are Coming On Pretty Well’: David Beckham Reveals His Daughter’s Love Of Football

The former England captain has spoken about how his little girl Harper takes after her daddy

When it comes to taking after your parents, David Beckham leaves some pretty big football boots to fill. And little Harper’s already having a go.

Our dad super crush and the former England captain, 38, has revealed his two-year-old daughter loves a kick about with her brothers.

‘Harper’s skills are coming on pretty well,’ David told The Metro at the premiere of The Class of 92 on Sunday. He features in the documentary about Old Trafford’s youth players from that year.

‘We’ll see if she wants to follow in my footsteps or not. She loves playing it with the boys.’

Harper’s brother Brooklyn, 14, has reportedly been looked at for Manchester United’s football academy, but David made it clear his son was still just enjoying the game at the moment and nothing had been signed.

It isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Harper’s sporty side. She’s joined her dad for several ice hockey games in LA, including one in May where the pair grinned and cuddled for the cutest ever KissCam.
