Victoria Beckham revealed that her husband, David Beckham, felt “heartbroken” by a request their daughter, Harper, made about being dropped off at school. The fashion designer shared this during an appearance on the Armchair Expert podcast, hosted by Dax Shepard. While discussing her life and career with the host, she recounted stories about her family, including her husband David, whom she married in 1999.

At one point in the episode, Victoria shared a story about an experience with her daughter Harper during a school drop-off.

Victoria said, “David was having this conversation the other day when he was dropping off Harper. She was like, ’Daddy, can you drop me a little bit away from the school?’” Victoria added that he was “heartbroken.” The entrepreneur further commented on the podcast, “She’s our youngest daughter, and he was like, ’Oh really, this is happening.’”

Victoria added, “And then he was like, ’If it’s uncool that David Beckham’s your dad ...’ I mean, let’s be honest, what hope do most of the other kids have?”

David Beckham and his daughter Harper share a special bond, frequently spending time together. David often expresses his affection for Harper, though he has faced criticism for kissing her on the lips. Despite this, David insists it’s simply his way of showing love.

The ex-Manchester United player explained that he kisses all his children on the lips. He often posts heartwarming photos of himself with his kids on social media, showcasing his love and affection. However, he noted that he doesn’t kiss his eldest son, Brooklyn, on the lips anymore because Brooklyn is older and it might seem strange.

Many parents enjoy kissing their kids on the lips to show affection. However, aside from personal boundaries, there are some risks involved. Medical experts caution that kissing children on the lips can lead to unwanted health consequences.
