While most of our nurseries featured art along the lines of cutesy mobiles and dancing bear wallpaper, most of us are not one-year-old Harper Seven Beckham, whose bedroom wall now displays the kind of piece that would make most contemporary art galleries green with envy. Yes, the celebu-tot is the proud new owner of a Damien Hirst original, personally commissioned by daddy David Beckham.
Not to worry, though, baby Becks isn’t going to be forever traumatized by a formaldehyde-immersed shark or diamond-encrusted skull. Rather, the painting adorning her wall is reportedly a nursery-friendly rendering of a lilac heart, appropriately named “Daddy’s Girl.” The soccer star is on the September cover of Esquire UK, and if you manage to tear your eyes away from the smoking hot photos long enough to read the interview, you’ll see he tells the glossy how much he loves having a baby girl after three boys.
“I’m still amazed we have a little girl. I change her nappy and I’m still amazed that it’s a girl. Amazing.”
We wonder if older sibs Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz got any big ticket pieces back when they were toddlers? We have a hunch little Harper is the most pampered of the bunch.
