David Beckham is already known as a man of many talents but now it appears he has added yet another skill to his growing repertoire - sewing dolls dresses.

The former England captain, and father of four, has been caught in a sweet family snap with a needle and thread in hand as he helps to create a new pink dress for one of daughter Harper's dolls.

Proud wife Victoria, the usual fashion designer of the family, posted the candid photograph on Instagram saying "Harper has daddy stitching her dollies dresses!!!" and adding the hashtags "#loveyoudaddy" and "#proudmummy".
