Harper Beckham is famously close to dad David - and now her mum Victoria has been revealed he was there to record her first wobbly steps.

The fashion designer, 46, shared a sweet throwback clip of the milestone moment in a family video montage to mark the football star’s 45th birthday.

In the footage - which the Spice Girl revealed in an Instagram post to her 28m followers - the little toddler can be seen trying to walk tentatively towards the sportsman, who appears to be behind the camera.

As she tumbles to floor, the father-of-four can be heard encouragingly telling her: “Clever girl!”

The Beckhams are believed to be in coronavirus lockdown at their country home in the Cotswolds, where they have been residing since mid-March.

He sent his “thoughts and best wishes” to everybody as we face “unprecedented challenges”.

The star also offered three pieces of advice from UNICEF and the World Health Organisation, which included washing your hands regularly with soap and water and covering your mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing.

He finished the post by saying: “Sending you my love during this time, let’s keep safe.”
