Victoria Beckham takes her little ballerina Harper to see The Nutcracker

She's always hoped that at least one of her children would be into dance or fashion, and it looks like Victoria Beckham will get her wish. The designer's four-year-old daughter Harper was enthralled by The Nutcracker during a visit to the Royal Opera House with her mum on Wednesday.

Victoria, 41, who has always been a fan of the festive ballet show, shared a lovely photo of her and her adorable daughter. Sitting on her mum's lap with her hair in pig tails, Harper is shown waiting for the curtains to open.

The mother-of-four must be especially excited to see her daughter take a liking to ballet after Harper initially told her mum that she wanted to "play football" rather than pursue a fashion career, which Victoria admitted felt like a "dagger through the heart".

"I have three boys that want to play football," Victoria told Vogue. "You know, come on, let one of them want to be into fashion or dance."

"I would rather her go into fashion than be in a pop group I have to say," she added. "But I did have fun doing that."

The youngest of the Beckham clan has also been taking ballet lessons, making both her parents extremely proud. Her mother took to Instagram to share her admiration for her little girl's first steps in dance.

The former Spice Girl shared a black-and-white photo of her angelic child in a leotard, skirt and ballet shoes, ready for her ballet class. "Mummy is so proud of her little ballerina X X," she wrote on Instagram.

Harper has been taking ballet lessons

Speaking to the Evening Standard at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in December 2014, the fashion designer revealed that she and husband David would be treating their only daughter to see the ballet for the first time.

"David and I are also taking Harper to the ballet over Christmas. I remember, as a girl, loving the story of The Nutcracker", she said.

Harper's first trip to the ballet must have made a lasting impression, with The Nutcracker becoming a tradition in the Beckham household.
