Beckham hangs 600k heart in Harper's room

David Beckham

David Beckham has put a 600,000 heart painting on his two-year-old daughter's wall.

The piece - called 'Daddy's Girl' - is by artist Damien Hirst, who is a close friend of the retired soccer star, and it will hang in Harper's nursery at the family's new 40-million Notting Hill mansion in west London.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, a source revealed: "The removal firm was extra careful with the Damien Hirst painting.

"It was packaged up, but no one wanted to drop it and put a hole in such a valuable work of art.

"Harper is a lucky girl, having such an expensive painting hanging in her room."

David and his wife, Victoria, commissioned the piece from their friend around their daughter's first birthday and it is said they paid "tens of thousands" for the painting - although a similar piece was sold in an auction for 601,250 in 2011.

Talking when he bought 'Daddy's Girl', the star said: "[It is] a piece of art which I had specially made by a friend. The name of the artist? Damien Hirst."
