David Beckham wants to buy Dame Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery for wife Victoria.

The soccer superstar wants to splash out on the late screen legend's £2.9 million worth of diamonds when they are auctioned next month to show fashion designer spouse how much he loves her since the birth of their fourth child, daughter Harper Seven, two months ago.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "David's been so happy since Harper was born, he feels like him and Victoria are falling in love all over again. He wants to show it with the most impressive gifts possible."

Auction house Christie's are to sell off the 'Cleopatra' star's jewellery collection in December, nine months after she died in March at the age of 79.

All proceeds from the sale will go to the actress' charity, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

It was recently revealed that David and Victoria - who also have sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz together - feel like "newlyweds" following the birth of their fourth child.

A source said: "Harper's made them feel like newlyweds again ... Harper's brought out David's softer side again, all the romance has come flooding back.

"It's like that little girl has just flipped a switch in David's brain and he's more in love with his wife than ever. He's been cooking romantic dinners for Victoria - something he hasn't done since they were married. He orders a pizza for the boys and then sends them to their rooms as he cooks. He goes all out with candles and red wine. He even puts on music. He'll do it on a random weeknight, just out of the blue, to surprise her."
