Harper Beckham, Victoria and David Beckham's youngest child and only daughter, celebrated her 11th birthday yesterday, and her doting parents shared two gushing, public tributes to her. David, who often posts about how much he adores Harper, shared footage of her when she was younger. “Happy Birthday to my Pretty Lady ❤️” he wrote. “11 years old today I can’t believe it ❤️ You are the most beautiful little girl with the biggest Heart ❤️ we love you so so so much . Love Daddy ❤️ @victoriabeckham @brooklynpeltzbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham ❤️”
Victoria shared her own Instagram post to Harper, featuring more recent photos of the stylish preteen. “Happy 11th Birthday to our little everything!!” she wrote. “The sweetest kindest most beautiful soul we could ever wish for 💕💕 we all love you so much! x”
Victoria also shared footage of Harper's birthday celebration. Harper was dressed chicly in a yellow puff-sleeved dress and enjoyed a decadent, gorgeous pink cake.
Victoria posted another candid shot of Harper relaxing in the tub, watching a show. “Birthdays can be exhausting!” Victoria wrote. “Harper Seven living her best life, an inspiration to us all. 😂”
Victoria recently opened up to Vogue Australia about how she worries a little for her daughter Harper as she grows up and eventually joins social media. “Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about that just yet,” Victoria prefaced. “But seeing how cruel people can be, yes it really does [concern me]. She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends. But it is quite terrifying, I can’t lie.”
She added that while Harper is an accomplished makeup artist already, she isn't about to start dressing like an adult. “She’s not one of these kids who are going out with a full face of make-up and a crop top,” Victoria said. “She actually said to me recently, ‘Mummy, I’ve seen some pictures of you when you were in the Spice Girls and your skirts were just unacceptable. They were just too short.’ Then David piped up and said, ‘Absolutely, Harper! They really, really were.’ And she was actually quite disgusted at how short my skirts were. I said, ‘Are you never going to wear skirts like that?’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We’ll see.”
