The Beckhams show the world their new arrival

David and Victoria Beckham proudly cradle new daughter Harper Seven in two black and white pictures posted online.

Dad David, 36, poses nose to nose with his tiny daughter, while tired mum Victoria, 37, is snapped dozing after giving birth last week.

‘I took this picture of my two girls sleeping,’ Becks captions the snap.

David has explained that his little girl was named after Posh‘s favourite author, Harper Lee – who wrote To Kill A Mockingbird – and he added ‘spiritual’ Seven.

‘We’ve got three beautiful healthy boys already and we’re so lucky to have that – and now to have a beautiful little girl,’ says the soccer star.

‘Having a daughter is a whole new thing. Having pink in the house, having lilac in the house.

‘And you have to be a lot more delicate with girls than boys. I’m not used to that, so it’s a whole new experience.’

The Beckhams are also mum and dad to Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, six, and David has a brand new pair of pink-striped football boots showing all 4 of his children’s names.
