David Beckham shared the loveliest photo of his eight-year-old daughter Harper Seven to Instagram on Sunday. The snap, which appeared to have been taken during a walk in the country, showed his youngest child standing by a lake or river, clutching a small bunch of daisies. The young girl, who is fast overtaking her mum Victoria in the fashion stakes, wore a sweet white and pink floral dress with short frilled sleeves and beamed at the camera. Her long brown hair was tied back in plaits.

Retired footballer Robbie Keane also responded, posting a red heart emoji. David's other followers soon shared their approval for the sweet snapshot, with their comments including: "She's so cute," "Hello Angel, happy Sunday," and: "Lovely girl."
