David Beckham's two youngest children look just like their famous dad did when he was a little boy! The retired footballer took to his Instagram account on Monday to share a childhood photo of him and his younger sister Joanne to mark her birthday, and fans were quick to notice the family resemblance between the dad-of-four and his only daughter Harper, while others noted that he looked like son Cruz. The photo, which was captioned: "Happy Birthday little Sis..... So proud of you as a woman and an amazing mother ... Have an amazing day @joannebeckham @sandra_beckham49@lynnebeckham72," pictured David and Joanne as children sitting on the sofa, with followers taking to the comments section to share their observations. "David in this picture you have the same eyes as Harper," one told the former England captain, while another said: "Spitting image of Cruz here." A third added: "Harper and Cruz!"
