David Beckham is keeping busy in the kitchen while his wife Victoria cares for their new baby.

The couple welcomed their first daughter Harper Seven into the world on July 7 and the soccer superstar has been helping out with the domestic duties, while Victoria and their three sons adjust to the new arrival.

Accompanied by a picture of his culinary creation, David wrote on his Facebook page: "A little something I made earlier ... a homemade Risotto for the family."

The 36-year-old sportsman and his boys, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight and six-year-old Cruz, have been getting used to having another girl in the house and accept they won't be able to be as rough with her

He said: "Having a daughter is a whole new thing. Having Pink in the house and lilac in the house. And you have to be a lot more delicate with girls than with boys and I'm not used to that so it's a whole new experience but it's an amazing experience. To have that little bundle of joy and your hands and her making her little noises and opening her eyes - it really is an incredible moment for us."

Meanwhile, David has been voted the Most Influential Sports Star in the World Today.

The former Real Madrid star has beaten a host of big names, including Barcelona soccer player Lionel Messi, 100m Olympics gold medal winner Usain Bolt and tennis superstar Rafael Nadal, to claim the title in the poll conducted by clothing brand Tekkers.

Tekkers founder Andy Ansah said: "David's influence is as strong as ever. He's got the lot: looks, attitude, drive and a genuine global following."
