The Beckhams know there's nothing posh about bad manners!

So, it comes as no surprise that Victoria Beckham and David Beckham's brood—including little Harper—are courteous and well-behaved children.

"Even my 2-year-old daughter says 'please' and 'thank you,'" David, 38, recently told Huffington Post U.K. "From living in America, she says, 'You're welcome.'"


"We try to lead by example, by showing them it's important to work hard," he added. "That's one of the key things me and my wife have always done, [both] before we had children, and now [that] we have four children."

"I've done that throughout my footballing career and I'll continue to do it outside," he said. "We juggle everything around the family because our main priority is the children, simple as that, and it always will be, but being hardworking is the best thing you can show children."

Somehow we think Harper—and big brothers Romeo, Cruz and Brooklyn—will grow up to be polite, hardworking adults just like mum and dad!
