The five-year-old can be seen dressed in her school uniform as she holds hands with her dad, and David captioned the sweet photo: "Everyone needs a little love and comfort in the mornings." The retired footballer's followers were quick to gush over the adorable picture, with one writing: "Awwwww! This is so beautiful. God bless this beautiful family." Another added: "Well, school can be scary ... and it's a long time without mum and dad."

The proud dad-of-four often shares photos and videos of his daughter on social media, and recently posted an adorable video of the little girl playing with a birthday card for her grandma. In the clip, Harper sticks her out of the card, which is designed to look like a chicken, and David captioned: "I mean sometimes the kids do things that really make you chuckle... Happy birthday to Nana." David has previously opened up about his relationship with his daughter, telling ET: "I have no power with that little girl - no power whatsoever. I love all my children, of course, equally but I'm definitely stricter with the boys than I am Harper, which gets me in trouble with my wife of course."

David recently opened up about his marriage to Victoria and their family life during the 75th anniversary edition of Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. "Of course you make mistakes over the years," he said. "We all know marriage is difficult at times and it's about working through it. Whenever we've come up against tough times, we know each other better than anybody knows us so we talk. Do we stay together because it's a brand? Of course not. We stay together because we love each other. We stay together because we have four amazing children. Of course we go through tough times. When we go through tough times we work through it as a unit, as a family."
