David, a father-of-four himself, took to Instagram to share the snaps of himself holding his sister Joanne’s newborn daughter, adding that he was ‘so proud’ of her for welcoming the little one into the world.

‘Welcome to the world little Peggy ❤️ So proud of my little sis and congrats @krissydonners #Daddy such a beautiful family #proudUncle @joannebeckham,’ David wrote alongside the pics.
