9 Times David Beckham Melted Our Hearts on Instagram


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.

3. When He Was in Awe of His 17th Wedding Anniversary

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.

It makes me very proud that the money that the 7 Fund provide has helped these amazing mothers to give birth to perfectly healthy HIV negative baby’s … ❤️ @unicef

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.
