He is set to make his debut alongside Courteney Cox in Modern Family, and ahead of his episode, David Beckham shared a series of adorable pictures of his children - Romeo, Cruz and Harper - paying him a visit on set. One snap showed little Harper, aged eight, sat in a crew member's chair with headphones on her head so she could listen to the filming. "Still can't believe this happened," he wrote in the caption. "So excited to finally see the full episode tonight #ModernFamily @abcmodernfam #myfamilycameaswell."

In October, David and Friends star Courteney delighted fans after revealing they have filmed scenes together for the hit sitcom. The actress took to her Instagram page to share a picture of the pair getting cosy in a hot tub alongside show stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet. "Too hot in the hot tub! #modernfamily," Courteney gushed at the time. Surprised to see the photo, fellow Friends star Jennifer Aniston quickly asked: "Wait....WHAT'S HAPPENING?!!??"
