Victoria Beckham shared a touching poem her daughter Harper wrote for David Beckham on Father’s Day - a day on which many celebs offered us heartwarming insights into their family lives, including Jennifer Garner’s co-parenting tribute to ex Ben Affleck and John Legend’s praise for Chrissy Teigen never taking a break from “mummy duty” (ie.breast pumping).
VB shared a photo of the poem titled ‘Thank you Daddy, I love you Daddy’ by six-year-old Harper on an Instagram story, as well as sharing a family photo of David and three of their children.
One of the most touching lines is: “Thank you for all the the fun we have together, for hugging me until I almost burst.”
Harper’s poem reads: “Thank you Daddy for being kind and helpful, for helping me snow board and do tricks.
“For helping me with my tricky homework, and for helping me paint pretty pictures.
“Thank you for all the the fun we have together, for hugging me until I almost burst,
“For playing football with me, and for going to smiggle with me.
“Thank you Daddy for making me laugh, for playing the hand wrestle game, for telling me funny jokes, and for playing silly pranks on me.
“Thank you Daddy for being you, for loving me with all your heart, for tickling me in bed, and for taking care of me. “Thank you Daddy for being the best in evr. I love you Daddy and hope you have a special day. Harper xoxoxoxo.”
