In a world filled with handsome celebrity dads who change diapers with the precision of a Swiss timepiece and honor mommy’s desire for a no-screens household, there is one big poppa who reigns supreme. David Beckham is arguably one of the most gorgeous human beings, but he’s also a doting father and an adoring husband who’s not above posting pictures of his children’s drawings on Instagram. Though nearly every photo he shares makes us swoon, let’s revel in these nine posts in which David Beckham and his family-man ways melted our hearts.
1. When He Began His Quest for Best Father Ever
It’s hard to believe that 18 years ago, our personal favorite Spice Girl and the only professional soccer player we know by name welcomed their firstborn son, Brooklyn. Clearly, time has treated both men well.
2. When He Was Overjoyed at the Sight of His Daughter Riding a Bike
He can’t contain himself, and we can’t stop watching.
3. When He Was in Awe of His 17th Wedding Anniversary
Beckham says that he fell in love with wife Victoria at first sight. “She was obviously there for a reason, and I was hoping that I was that reason,” he said in an interview. Um, swoon.
4. When He Was the Happiest Birthday Dad in All of the United Kingdom
His pleased smile, the little boys in suits… we just can’t.
5. When He Made a New Friend
Not sure who’s cuter, the fluffy yellow duckling or the scruffy Beckham.
6. When He Took the Kids Out So Mum Could Work
The dream. Dad takes the kids so we can have a little peace and quiet, and they do something educational.
7. When He Reminded Us (Again) How Much He Loves Children
For over ten years, Beckham has worked with UNICEF to protect children’s rights. In 2015, he launched his own branch of the foundation, called 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund, with the aim to bring relief to children affected by malnutrition, AIDS, and other devastating maladies. So, his heart is beautiful too.

8. When He Penned a Mother’s Day Love Letter to His Wife
Pardon, we’re just a little choked up.
9. And Finally, When He Posted This Dreamy Dad Selfie
Daddy’s little girl clearly has the key to his heart, and we’d really like to borrow it.
