The Beckhams Spend $1,600 On Gold Casts Of Baby Harper's Hands & Feet! Cute Or Tacky?

The proud parents want the tiny statuettes to be a lasting memento of their first daughter, who’s just three weeks old!

David and Victoria Beckham have already captured the newborn’s tiny toes and fingers in plaster — and are waiting for them to be cast in gold so they can take pride of place in baby Harper Seven‘s nursery! Is this a great way to remember your baby’s early years? Or too weird?“Harper is so precious and such a beautiful little girl they wanted a physical representation of how she is now, just a few weeks after her birth,” a friend tells The Sun. “David and Victoria can’t stop smiling and are the proudest parents on Earth.”

The Beckhams bought a kit from a company called First Impressions, and carefully made casts of Harper’s digits in plaster, before sending it away to be set in gold.

The whole process costs around $1,600.

They’re not the first celebs to use the company. Former UK prime minister Tony Blair had casts made of his son Leo and First Impressions boasts it has cast body parts for Elton John!
