Victoria And David Beckham‘s daughter, Harper, is growing up!

The power couple celebrated Harper’s 13th birthday with a sweet tribute on social media on Wednesday, July 10.

“Happy birthday, best friend,” Victoria, 50, cheered in the first of three sincere messages via Instagram. “You are sweet and kind and your smile warms our hearts every day.” She called Harper “our everything,” adding that “we are so proud of the happy, beautiful, talented young lady you are becoming. We love you so much.”

The fashion designer and her husband separately posted the same video montage, set to Bruno Mars‘Just the Way You Are’ — chronicles Harper through the years: as a toddler learning to walk, as a pint-sized ballerina, as a soccer player with father David, 49, and posing for family photos with brothers Brooklyn, 25, Romeo, 21, and Cruz, 19.

(Harper’s middle name, Seven, has special significance as it was the number on David’s shirt when he played soccer — or football in Britain — for his hometown team, Manchester United.)

And in her third post for Harper’s birthday, Victoria left a clamp of David hugging her when she was younger while singing along to Michael Jackson‘The Girl Is Mine’. She tagged David in her caption and wrote: ‘You truly are and have always been the best dad.’
