David Beckham thinks Justin Bieber will be an "amazing" father.

The soccer star - who has Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, six-year-old Cruz, and four-month-old daughter Harper with wife Victoria - says the 'Baby' singer is a natural with children and was lavishing attention on little Harper when the family attended a recent studio session with the teen idol.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, David said: "Justin's so great with kids! We walked into the studio, and we had Harper with us. Justin literally picked up Harper, and wouldn't put her down the whole time we were there.

"Obviously, he's got a younger brother and sister so he's really amazing with the kids."

Yesterday (16.11.11), Mariah Yeater - who claimed Justin was the father of her four-month-old son - dropped her paternity lawsuit against the 17-year-old, but her new lawyer has revealed she wants to pursue the matter out of court.

Jeffery M. Leving told Chicago's WGN-TV: "This matter is not over. Negotiations are going on right now with Bieber's counsel. There's a new legal team [in place).

"[Mariah] believes Justin Bieber is the father. We're trying to secure a private DNA test, because this case is out of control."

While the lawyer says his client still wants to pursue the matter, he wants details of any DNA test to be kept private as Mariah has allegedly received death threats over her claims the 17-year-old pop star fathered her son, who is now four months old.

Mr. Leving added: "I don't want something terrible to happen to my client or her child.

"My goal, when a DNA test is completed, is to keep everything confidential, which will be difficult if not impossible. I'm very concerned about this."
