David Beckham's birthday couldn't have gotten off to a better start. The former football star was treated to an amazing breakfast by his three youngest children and his wife, Victoria Beckham, as well as receiving a big selection of presents and birthday balloons. Proud wife Victoria was one of the first to publicly congratulate David, sharing a picture of him posing with three of his children, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, in the dining room of their west London mansion. Their eldest son Brooklyn Beckham is missing this year's celebrations, but his absence didn't go unnoticed, with Victoria paying a special tribute to him in her birthday message to David.

"Happy birthday to the best daddy!! X," she told her nearly 20 million Instagram followers. "We all love u so much!!! So many kisses from us all xxxx we miss u @brooklynbeckham X".

The designer, 42, also shared the most adorable video of Harper, six, reading the birthday card message she had personally written to her "daddy". "Hi daddy, Happy Birthday! I hope you like your fabulous present. Love Harper. I love you so, so much daddy," she can be heard saying. Many fans were quick to comment on her accent and tone, with one saying: "A very well spoken little girl x". "Oh my god, her British accent is so adorable," another follower wrote.
