David Beckham Teaches Daughter Harper How to Ride a Bike: ‘Look at My Big Girl’

05/31/2015 at 02:30 PM ET

David Beckham‘s 3½-year-old daughter Harper is a natural on a bicycle! The soccer star is teaching the adorable toddler how to ride her first bike, and it seems to be going swimmingly.

Beckham, 40, shared a sweet pic of the pair’s adventure in cycling via his Instagram account on Sunday.
In the black and white image, Harper rides through a grassy yard, her tiny braids flying out from under her helmet. Beckham holds onto the back of his youngest child’s bike, which didn’t have any training wheels.

“Look at my big girl,” the soccer star wrote. “Day One – No stabilizers.”

Earlier this week the doting dad shared several pictures of children’s books that he read to his daughter with Victoria Beckham during bedtime.

“‘Bedtime stories’ ” he said on Tuesday, alongside an image of a book called Very Little Cinderella.

Beckham posted a similar image the following day, this time of two books called Good Night Utah and Good Night New York City.

“Sweet Dreams Harper Seven,” he wrote, referencing the darling tot’s unique middle name.

Harper’s older brother Brooklyn, 16, also treated his little sis this week, taking her toy shopping.

Sweet family. David is a great Dad.

OMG!!!!! Him and MOST fathers on the planet! So sick of him posting things he does with his children. He is a DAD , he is SUPPOSED to do things with his children WITHOUT expecting a PAT on the BACK from the world. My dad taught me to ride a bike 46 yrs ago plus a lot more and did NOT go LOOKING for PRAISE from everyone for it. SUCK IT UP MORON!! YOU are NOT the ONLY DAD out there doing things WITH YOUR CHILDREN.

Uhhh, lioness… what is wrong with you? You sound so sad and pathetic.

Lioness – why so angry? Dial it back a notch.

@lioness I don’t see that he is asking for a pat on the back. He’s proud and posting pictures of his kid on a social network. Which is something that MILLIONS of other parents do, if my Facebook feed is any indication. Sorry someone peed in your cheerios today.

He is proud of his family lioness. What is so hard to understand? I think the picture was sweet.

Luisita on

Lioness, what do you expect? He’s a celebrity dad first
and foremost. I do think he likes being with his kids just as many dads do. The problem here is that anything he does is treated as a publicity stunt.

It’s better than mr kartashian who does nothing

It’s not just celebrities who post pictures like this. My facebook page is filled with a play by play of what everyone is eating, drinking, watching, wearing, etc. We have all become a “look at me” society.

If the worst thing you can say about David Beckham is that he posts loving posts that show his adoration of his family, I’m thinking he’s doing alright.
They may live an extreme lifestyle, but they’ve worked for it and they seem down to earth.

I think it’s nice. I don’t mind at all. Lioness sounds like a lonely loser. Someone who is happy with their own life is not going to make such jealous sounding comments. Relax, dear. I hope you can find some happiness in your own life.

Lioness, are you lonely, are you bitter, did your mother deliberately drop you on your head and ignore you? What a nasty little being you are. BTW, TAKE your CAPS OFF, they’re annoying just like you. Mr. Beckham, please continue posting your wonderful family pictures, most of us enjoy them.

Ummmmm, @lioness . . . get some meds cuz you’re seriously off your rocker.

AWWWWW! It certainly seems as though Harper is a daddy’s girl! Sad to see that Brooklyn has apparently become one of those “all about me” teenagers though (seeing as how he posted a picture of himself taking his sister shopping- without her even in in the pic!). 😦
