Proud parents: David Beckham was seen cradling little Harper over the weekend while Victoria kept her newborn daughter close to her chest on a trip to The Grove in Los Angeles yesterday
She is only eight weeks old but already Harper Seven Beckham is following in her mother’s footsteps - straight to the most exclusive shops.
The latest addition to the Beckham clan was cradled by her father David as they visited upmarket baby boutique Bonpoint over the weekend, where babygrows sell for £150-plus.

And yesterday, Victoria was spotted giving her gorgeous little girl a cuddle as she and her sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz headed to The Grove to introduce Harper to the celebrity lifestyle.
Victoria teamed her black dress with a pair of flat black pumps, apparently having decided to heed doctors' advice to ditch the heels because of a painful back condition. The day before, Victoria had donned six-inch Christian Louboutin heels while David held baby Harper.
Sleeping: Moments before, Harper had been peacefully dozing
She is said to have slipped a disc while she was pregnant, after continuing to wear high heels even in the latter stages of expecting.
The injury was said to have been exacerbated by the caesarean operation for Harper’s birth in Los Angeles, where former England captain David now plays his football.
Victoria, 37, was nevertheless able to show off an enviable figure in her black minidress and matching cardigan just a short while after giving birth.

The Spice Girl turned fashion designer is due to showcase her Spring/Summer 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week next week, and is said to have been getting in shape for the launch by adopting the Five Hands Diet.
It involves eating five handful-sized portions of high-protein food daily, including smoked salmon, yellowfin tuna sushi and scrambled eggs.
According to some reports, Victoria is already back down to a tiny US size zero (British size 4).
Speaking recently about how she stays in shape, mother-of-four Victoria said: '[I run] Four, five miles every day on the treadmill. For me, I like the fact that, mentally, I can get off whenever I want.'
Sticking to flats: Victoria has apparently been advised by doctors to give herself a rest from high heels due to a painful back condition
But passionate designer Victoria is no doubt looking forward to getting back to work with the New York showcase.
In an interview earlier this year, Victoria said while things are more than a little busy in her life, she wouldn't change it.
She explained: 'As any working mum out there knows, it really is like juggling glass balls when you’ve got the kids and a husband to look after, and you’re passionate about your career. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m blessed.'
How high? The day before, Posh was seen wearing a pair of extremely high Christian Louboutin heels for a trip to the shops with David, Brooklyn and Harper
