David and Harper Beckham have been all about the father-daughter days out this week – including becoming zookeepers for a day.
The footballer, 45, updated fans on the pair’s day at Cotswolds Wildlife Park, where Harper, nine, got stuck in looking after the animals.
Animal lover Harper was seen throwing fish into the penguin enclosure for feeding time, as well as wrestling with a branch of leaves that the giraffes were snacking from.
She got up close to the lemurs, including posing next to a poster of one and pulling a funny face as well as hand-feeding them in their pen.
It wasn’t only the cute jobs she got involved in, however, as Harper wasn’t afraid to tackle some of the dirtier tasks needed to keep the zoo running.
She and David were seen grabbing a broom to muck out enclosures, and Harper even held up a large lump of dung, with David cheekily telling his followers they were taking it home as ‘a little gift for mummy’.
We’re sure Victoria Beckham would prefer something from the gift shop, but it’s the thought that counts, after all…
David also filmed Harper giving the goats a health check, but while she was happy to check their eyes and heads, she bowed out of inspecting their rear ends.
Dad David was heard saying: ‘if you are brave, you have to check their bums’, to which Harper joked: ‘I’m not brave.’
Sharing a video of Harper petting a rhino’s horn, David told his followers: ‘So Harper became a Junior Zoo Keeper for the day thanks to Reggie at @cotswoldwildlifepark and with the help of Helen it was such a fun day for dad as well. Meet Bell btw.’
The pair had also gone foraging and made autumn wreaths together earlier in the week, when they were the subject of trolling after Victoria shared a photo of David kissing Harper on the lips.
Fans were quick to rally around the pair and hit back at those who were shaming David for showing affection to his daughter.
