17 Times David Beckham Proved He's The Best Celebrity Dad

David Beckham may be busy being a celebrity, philanthropist and model, but at the end of the day the former soccer player goes home to his lovely family whom he described as his "greatest achievement."

The 42-year-old British athlete is father to four kids, Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 12, and Harper, 5, whom he shares with former Spice Girl Victoria Adams.

Over the years, we have seen the family share tidbits of their daily lives and special moments on social media, and through it all one thing remained consistent: Beckham is a great dad.

"What matters is being a good father and a good husband – just being connected to family as much as possible. Being a dad is more important than football, more important than anything," Beckham said in an interview.

"I adore children. I love the fact our children are part of both of us. It's one of the most amazing things ever."
