Posting the touching photograph to his Facebook page David gushed: 'I took this picture of my two girls sleeping...'

He said: 'A lot of thought goes into our children's names and Harper was a name that we've loved for a long time for a couple of reasons.
'One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. It's a very strong, passionate book. That's where Harper came from.

'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.
'Having a daughter is a whole new thing. Having pink in the house, having lilac in the house... and you have to be a lot more delicate with girls than boys and I'm not used to that so it's a whole new experience.'
Beckham's online video comes a day after his wife spoke of her joy as becoming a mother to little Harper.
