Doting dads Jay-Z and David Beckham have both recently won a legion of fans with their sweet displays of affection for their young daughters – who have very differing takes on their famous fathers’ behavior.

Jay-Z, 52, brought his 10-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, as his date to the NBA Finals game in San Francisco on Monday – and fans couldn’t get enough of the father-daughter duo’s adorable antics.

However, the record-breaking artist suffered from an embarrassing dad moment when he tried to hug and kiss Blue, whom he shares with his wife, Beyoncé, 40, during the match – but she was not here for the PDA and awkwardly pulled away from him.

Blue is no stranger to the public eye, and has attended events with her parents many times over the years – including the MTV Video Music Awards in 2016 and the Lion King premiere in 2019.

‘I told her to get in the car the other day ’cause she was asking a thousand questions and we had to leave for school,’ he shared.

‘So, we’re driving and I just hear a little voice, “Dad, I didn’t like when you told me to get in the car, the way you told me. It hurt my feelings.”‘

Every inch the protective father, David kept a watchful eye on Harper as she stepped on board of a boat; he then draped his arm around her as they rode through the canals together.

One day earlier, the athlete and the 10-year-old attended the Riva event at the Fenice theater in Venice together, where Harper clutched onto her dad’s hand as they made their way inside.

‘This picture melts my heart,’ Victoria – who didn’t attend the glamorous event – wrote on Instagram, alongside a pic of the two at the event.
