Go daddy: David Beckham's mini cheerleader Harper gives him a boost at LA Galaxy match
29 OCTOBER 2012
She might be only 15 months old, but it seems Harper Beckham is already something of a football fan. Considering who her famous daddy is though, that's probably a good thing.
The little girl looked to be thouroghly enjoying herself as she checked out David Beckham in action at an LA Galaxy match with the rest of her photogenic family. Sitting on mum Victoria's knee, the cute youngster had a perfect view. At one point, with the former Spice Girl's help, she stood up and lifted her arms in the air, cheering on her daddy as his team took on the Seattle Sounders at the Home Depot Center on Sunday.

Equally engrossed by the match were Harper's big brothers, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, ten, and Cruz, seven – who are regular pitch-side spectators. This time around the family had some celebrity company in the form of some famous friends.
Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana – longtime pals of the Beckhams - tagged along with their four children. And there was a new addition to the circle of friends – British funnyman Russell Brand. The comedian is a big football fan – and is often spotted watching his home team West Ham.
Victoria and David are clearly settled into LA life after being there for five years. But a move could be on the cards for the family of six. They are said to be "seriously considering" going back to the UK and have even started looking for a new family home in London.
"They love their life in Los Angeles, but there are some serious discussions going on at the moment about a potential move," a source close to the Beckhams told HELLO! Magazine. At the end of last year speculation was rife that David would transfer to French club Paris Saint-Germain, but in January he signed a new two-year contract with LA Galaxy, citing his family's need for stability as the reason for remaining Stateside.
"My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America, and we look forward to spending many more years here," said the 37-year-old sportsman at the time. He added: "When you're married and you have children, your priorities change. We have three amazing boys and a little girl we have to look after so now our priorities are all about them. My family are happiest here at the moment. We love living in LA, we love living in America. We’ve adapted to the culture and everything the country has."
However, Galaxy and their star midfielder agreed to a one-year get-out clause – and there are signs that this may be about to be exercised. Our source says: "David is passionate about his career and wants to spend his last years as a top level footballer playing to the best of his ability. He may well get offers from European clubs, and he's made it clear that, if the offer is right, a move back across the Atlantic could be on the cards."
Friends of the Beckhams say the next few weeks will be crucial as the family considers its options should David decide that his career in Major League Soccer in the US has come to an end. Victoria, who has previously been reluctant to uproot the couple's three school age sons, apparently now thinks that a move might be the best option.
