David Beckham is dad to three boys – Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 9, and six-year-old Cruz – with wife Victoria, so you can understand his excitement at finally having a daughter, Harper. Still, the soccer star admits that the tot’s future as a fashionista – mom is already dressing the six-month-old in expensive designer clothes – means he can’t afford to retire anytime soon.
“I’ve obviously got three amazing boys and with boys you can throw them around and Harper is obviously my first girl and I’m more careful. Still now, I’m changing her diaper and I can’t believe I’ve got a girl,” David says.
“Everything about her is feminine, the way she eats, the way she moves, the way she looks. I love having a girl, but I’m glad she’s got three older brothers and a dad to look after her.
“Her wardrobe is incredible already. I’m glad I’ve got a two year contract,” he laughs.
Of his decision to re-sign with the LA Galaxy, the 36-year-old says it was because his family is happy in America and that they will always come first.
“I didn’t take it lightly as I had offers from other clubs around the world and at 36 you don’t expect it. But it was best for my family,” he says. “We love living in LA at the moment, we love living in America and we have adapted to the culture and at the moment we didn’t want to leave.
