David Beckham says that he can't think of retiring from football yet because of his baby daughter Harper's expensive wardrobe.

The athlete is married to fashion designer Victoria Beckham and they have three other children - sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

Beckham told The Today Show he has to remain successful to fund the family's lifestyle and added that his longed-for baby girl is completely running the Beckham household.

Beckham was "totally" wrapped around 10-month-old Harper's finger.

"The moment she was born, I think me and the boys, we were all done," he said.

"Her wardrobe is unbelievable. It's amazing. I think that's why I have to keep playing!"

Beckham reiterated his desire to play for Britain's football team at the London Olympics, saying he ignored those who say he would only be picked because of his celebrity status.

"I don't really take too much interest in those kinds of comments," he said. "But I have said that I felt that those comments are disrespectful, because I've had kind of a successful career with what I do."
