David Beckham makes baby niece Peggy laugh as fans ask if he's feeling broody

The father-of-four is a doting uncle to his sister Joanne's little girl

David Beckham has had his fair share of experience when it comes to looking after children, and the father-of-four certainly proved to be a hit with the newest member of the family – his baby niece Peggy. The retired footballer looked like he was in his element as he bonded with two-month-old, who appeared to find her famous uncle rather amusing. Taking to his Instagram account to share a sweet photo of the pair together, David captioned the post: "Apparently to my gorgeous little niece Peggy I’m pretty funny... @joannebeckham @sandra_beckham49@krissydonners."

Fans were quick to comment on the sweet snapshot, with one asking: "Absolutely adorable, does it make you broody again?" Another said of Peggy, who looked adorable dressed in a polka dot babygrow, "Beautiful niece." The footballer's younger sister Joanne Beckham welcomed little Peggy with partner Kris Donnelly on 9 December. She announced the happy news on social media, writing: "9.12.17 THE DAY OUR LIVES CHANGED FOREVER. Such an amazing feeling starting our own family, the love I have for our little princess Peggy is one that is so unconditional! I'd never of been able to do it without the love of my life ... @krissydonners you was my strength! Thank you family."
