David Beckham, whose wife Victoria recently gave birth to their first daughter Harper Seven, has opened up on feeding the newborn. He reveals that although Victoria has opted to breastfeed the baby, they are now bottling the milk so he gets the chance to feed Harper too, which he feels is vital for bonding. He gushed:

“It so important that they have that mother-daughter bond and breastfeed, I think, is really an incredible thing. We’re in the process of putting it in bottles now, so that means I get to feed her – which has been amazing.”

David told People that he has brought up his own kids the way he was brought up: to put family first. He believes it has helped the whole family stay grounded and has helped them deal with bad situations:

“It’s just the way [Victoria and I] were brought up as kids; it’s the way we are bringing our kids up. We make sure that the most important thing to us is our family and we’re all grounded. No matter what goes on around us, no matter what situation it is, we come together as a family and we deal with it.”
