LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The Beckham family has changed in a big way since baby Harper was born in July, and proud dad David loves the new experiences a baby girl is giving him.
“Everything she does, from the moment she wakes up to the moment she sleeps — it’s a totally different thing. Obviously, I’m used to having boys,” David told Access Hollywood when asked about newborn daughter Harper while he promoted his latest male fragrance, David Beckham Homme, in Los Angeles on Monday.
The soccer star told Access he’s enjoying having a new lady amongst the Beckham clan, which includes his sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6.
“We’ve got three amazing boys, but there’s a lot of energy with them. With Harper, she’s so calm, she’s so ladylike, she’s so feminine,” he explained. “Everything she does is a milestone… the way she holds herself, the way she breathes, the way she smiles, the way she makes noises. It’s just – it’s amazing.”
David’s newest bundle of joy also has something in common with his latest fragrance – their comment scent.
“Nothing compares to the smell of a newborn baby, Nothing. There’s nothing out there that even comes close,” he explained. “I’ll tell you, [my fragrance] is the closest thing to it, but nothing compares to a newborn baby smell… you can’t beat the smell of a baby, but I don’t think you can beat this smell either.”
As for mom Victoria, David said his ladylove is feeling better after developing a back injury following the birth of Harper.
“She’s in great form right now. A few weeks after the baby, she had a slipped disk in her back, which was obviously very uncomfortable for her, because then feeding Harper was very difficult, and picking Harper up. So, everything she did was obviously painful,” David told Access. “But she’s great now… she’s very happy at the moment.”
