David Beckham likes to bite Harper

Los Angeles - David Beckham likes to bite his baby daughter.

The soccer star says he's absolutely smitten with 10-month-old Harper and loves spending time with her and watching her grow.

David - who also has three sons, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, and seven-year-old Cruz, with fashion designer wife Victoria - said of having a daughter: "It's great. I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It's how a baby should be. She's so beautiful. There's no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it's just different.

"When they [boys] are kids you can roll them around and they fall to the sides and they pick themselves up and they're fine. Whereas Harper, now, she hits herself just slightly and she cries.... I still think 'Oh God, I can't believe this, I've got a girl.' And to see the boys with her it's incredible. When they walk into the room, her little face lights up."

Date night

While David and Victoria are hands-on parents, they like to have a date night once a week where they can just spend some time on their own.

Speaking to the UK edition of ELLE Magazine - in which he becomes the publication's first male cover star - the handsome athlete said: "She comes home and shows me what she's been doing all day and what exciting dresses and bags she's got coming through. And then I say something boring like 'I got kicked today.' But we listen to each other.

"We try to go out at least once a week, just the two of us, a quiet dinner somewhere. It's not about wearing a nice dress or a nice suit. It's just going out and chatting and having some time together."
