He’s happy to let his 16-year-old son Brooklyn go on dates, so long as strict guidelines are in place.

But David Beckham joked that he’s never going to let daughter Harper, four, out of his sight when she’d old enough to have boyfriends.

The protective dad – who raises Brooklyn, Harper, Romeo, 13, and Cruz, 10, with his fashion designer wife Victoria – told Entertainment Tonight: ‘Obviously Brooklyn is definitely at that age.

‘We’re strong parents, and strict parents, but we’re like most parents. We love our kids and we want the best for them, so we’ll see.’

Asked if the rules will be different when Harper starts dating, he laughed: ‘Oh yeah. That’ll definitely be different!’

David has been vocal about how raising a little girl is a completely new experience, confessing that he’s far more protective of his only daughter than his three boys.

‘To have a daughter is a whole different story. I’m not saying I love my daughter more, but the boys are independent’, he explained, according to The Sun.

Asked how he would feel about Harper dating, he retorted in the past: ‘She’s not going out. She’s going to be like Rapunzel – up in the tower.’

He also confessed he had banned his wife Victoria from cutting Harper’s hair.

Speaking to Yahoo! Style, he explained: ‘About a year ago, my wife said, “Maybe we should cut Harper’s hair.” And I was like, “No! We need to grow it. Do. Not. Touch.”‘

‘Since she was born, we haven’t cut it. That’s why it’s pretty much down to her knees.’

David has several tattoo tributes to his daughter, including the words ‘Pretty Lady’ on his neck, which he got inked above am existing tattoo off her name last summer.
