David Beckham has always been openly protective of his kids, especially so with his youngest daughter Harper-Seven who was born in 2011. As Harper approached her 13th birthday, her parents reflected on how fast time has flown and what lies ahead now that she is stepping into her teenage years.

With Harper entering her teens, there’s no hiding David's worry, especially when it comes to dating, revealing just how tough he's finding her growing up.

A source revealed to Heat magazine: "David and Harper have such a special bond. He is naturally a protective dad, so obviously, he's nervous of anyone hurting his little girl. She's still so young, so a lot of this is hypothetical and he knows any dating will be purely innocent. But he also knows it's going to get harder for him the older she gets."

David is said to be feeling more sentimental than ever as Harper seems to be taking after her fashion icon mum with her love for fashion and beauty. "Over the past few months, Harper has really started changing," the insider added.

"She's getting dressed up a lot more, using make-up, having her hair done, going out with friends, and is always chatting about fashion and beauty with her mum. In some ways, David yearns for those days when she was still little."
