Taking to Instagram on Monday to share a photo of himself looking rather battered and bruised, David posed shirtless with a bloody nose and bloodshot eyes. Revealing Harper was the reason behind his out-of-the-ordinary appearance, the doting dad told fans his accident was caused after the father-daughter duo got caught in a tickle showdown.
