Beckhams show off their daddy's girl – via Twitter
Monday 18 July 2011
David Beckham has appeared in his first photograph with his week-old daughter, Harper Seven.
The picture, showing Beckham, 36, nuzzling the baby wrapped in a blanket, was posted on his wife Victoria's Twitter account yesterday, with the caption "Daddy's little girl". It is the couple's first daughter. Beckham, apparently noticing a difference between newborn girls and boys beyond the obvious, even claimed, "you have to be a lot more delicate with girls and I'm not used to that, so it is a whole different experience".
Beckham's Facebook page now shows a picture of Victoria with the baby, born on 10 July in Los Angeles. Harper is reportedly named after the former Spice Girl's favourite writer, To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee.
Beckham explained in an online video: "To have another girl in the family is really incredible. We've got three beautiful healthy boys already and we're so lucky to have that, and now to have a beautiful little girl."
