‘Harper Is A Lucky Girl’: David Beckham ‘Splashes £600,000 On Damien Hirst Nusery Painting’
David Beckham clearly lives by the motto: “only the best will do for daddy’s little girl”, spoiling daughter Harper rotten with her own art collection worth thousands of pounds, according the reports.
The retired footballer is reported to have shelled out a whopping £600,000 on a Damien Hirst painting for Harper’s nursery at the Beckham’s new West London pad.

The artwork, which stands at 7 ft tall and is aptly named Daddy’s Girl, was seen being moved into the Beckham’s new £40 million residence in Kensington.
A source revealed to the Daily Mail: “The removal firm was extra careful with the Damien Hirst. It was packaged up and no-one wanted to drop it and put a hole in such a valuable work of art.”
According to the source, the custom-made piece was commissioned by David and Victoria soon after Harper’s birth in 2011.
“Harper is a lucky girl having such an expensive painting hanging in her room,” the source added.
The heart-shaped design decorated with butterflies is believed to be similar to a painting Damien created in 2011, which fetched for £600,000.
