Sister Harper, eight, however, has taken on an unlikely passion for the sport that helped her father turn into a household name.
In 2018, David told The Graham Norton Show: “Harper is playing [football] every Sunday and loves it. The boys don’t play and it is heartbreaking. They have a talent, but it’s up to Harper now. I get very excited when I look at her. ”
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham later revealed that their children were worried about disturbing their father after they decided against a career in football.
