David Beckham: “Harper Is So Beautiful”

David Beckham is head over heels for his baby girl Harper Seven.

Covering the July issue of UK’s ELLE magazine, the very handsome dad-of-four takes the opportunity to gush about his adorable 10-month-old daughter: “I still think ‘Oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl,” he admits.

”It’s great. I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It’s how a baby should be. She’s so beautiful. There’s no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it’s just different,” says David, who is also dad to boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. “When they [boys] are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they’re fine. Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries…. I still think ‘Oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl.’ And to see the boys with her it’s incredible. When they walk into the room, her little face lights up.”

David also chats about his hard-working wife Victoria Beckham, saying that regular date nights help keep them on the same page.

”She comes home and shows me what she’s been doing all day and what exciting dresses and bags she’s got coming through. And then I say something boring like ‘I got kicked today.’ But we listen to each other,” he explains. “We try to go out at least once a week, just the two of us, a quiet dinner somewhere. It’s not about wearing a nice dress or a nice suit. It’s just going out and chatting and having some time together.”

    I love the guy, but he sure does fuel the stereotypes of boys and girls. My girl was just as tough and fragile as my boy. Babies are babies, they aren’t made of different materials. I guess he’s just awed at having a daughter.

    Co-sign. This is ridiculous. My daughters were tough as guts, daredevils on bikes, athletic, capable children. My son? The intellectual chatterbox who couldn’t bear to see an animal in pain and hated mud, cold and blood. They are PEOPLE. It just makes me hope Hraper grows up to be a motor mechanic in a grunge band.

    Clearly David and Victoria believe being beautful is the most important thing a girl can be.

    Ever sexy Becks! The man is talking about his daughter and how fragile she is…its a new experience for him; does he really need to be ridiculed for that?

    I love seeing their family out and about! I like what he had to say about Victoria – its no wonder they have such a great marriage!

    He loves his children and I think it’s fabulous. You can’t even give him that? You have to criticize him like you know him? How did you get your wacky opinions from what he said? Give me a break. I don’t get that you can find anything in what he said to criticize him. We see pictures of him kissing his sons all the time, where’s your stereotype there? You are critical for the sake of being critical. I guess it makes you feel superior, that’s the only thing I can think of to explain your comments.

    I don’t hate the guy. How can you hate someone you don’t even know?

    But those tattoo ‘sleeves’? Ugh. It’s like ruining a beautiful painting by putting it in a hideous frame.
