TV celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay was spotted enjoying a spot of boogie boarding on Malibu Beach with LA Galaxy star David Beckham and his three children, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
Ramsay, however was no match for Becks' physical prowess, which he proudly showed off by throwing the boys around in the warm California sea, lifting them above his head before sending them crashing down into the rolling waves.
Ramsay's wife, Tanya who is a keen runner and fitness fan, was also caught frolicking in the waves, while Victoria Beckham stayed away with new baby Harper Seven.
The 37-year-old was seen in Hollywood with her nanny holding Harper's baby carrier as they made their way to a business meeting. Friends of the star have said that wearing heels in pregnancy may have contributed to her slip disc, according to the Telegraph newspaper.
On Friday night Victoria thanked fans for their support on Twitter. 'Thank u for your kind messages. I'm feeling much better and enjoying every previous minute with baby Harper. I'm so in love. X BV.'
