David Beckham is a doting father to his 6-year-old daughter Harper and he has proved it on multiple occasions. But his recent video has melted the heart of millions of his fans as he teaches his youngest child how to play football.

On Thursday, 28 September, the retired football superstar shared two sweet videos of his little girl's first training session. "Someone's ready for her first football lesson," the proud daddy captioned the first video shot in black and white.

And it appears six-year-old Harper may take after her father because she handles the ball like a pro. Beckham was passing the ball while standing across Harper, who was kicking it impressively. The videos have garnered more than three million views in last 12 hours and fans found them "beautiful for so many reasons".

"It's so cute your girl is the footballer of the family you are a great daddy," said one of Beckham's fans, praising the sports idol. "I imagine what your pride is in teaching your daughter to play football," added another.

Many thought Harper will end up at the top of the sport because "she has the best teacher". Another fan said: "I love how she plays football." Beckham is adored for being such a supportive father to his four children: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.

During an interview in Malaysia for AIA's #WhatsYourWhy campaign, the former English footballer gushed about his daughter: "In the summer, we go to LA usually and we will go on family hikes, at least twice a week. I used to have Harper on my back for most of it and now she's a little bit stubborn and doesn't want to get on daddy's back anymore – she wants to do it herself."

"But then sometimes, she does get on dad's back," he added.
