Becks: I don't want Harper dating
David Beckham has admitted he hates the idea of daughter Harper having a boyfriend.
The footballer and dad of four told The Sun he felt more protective over his little girl.
On the subject of her dating one day, he said: "Absolutely not. She's not going out. She's going to be like Rapunzel - up in the tower."
Becks, 38, said that he and wife Victoria, 39, are more protective of their 22-month-old daughter than sons Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10 and Cruz, eight.
He said: "To have a daughter is a whole different thing. I'm not saying I love my daughter more, but the boys are independent."
Becks ended his football career at Paris Saint Germain in May and said: "I'm excited about simple things like visiting my parents."
Ex-Spice Girl Victoria talked last week about making sure Harper didn't feel the pressure to go for a glamorous look.
She said: "I can't put on make-up when Harper's around, because she would join me immediately. She is a tomboy towards her brothers."
