Poles apart: David Beckham's older sister Lynne isn't so Posh as she shows off her baby daughter

Very different lives: Victoria Beckham and her baby daughter Harper are rarely seen without their designer clothes (L) whereas David's sister Lynne is less glamorous

They may be related but David Beckham couldn't be living a more different life to that of his older sister.

Lynne Beckham, 39, was spotted with her baby daughter in Romford, Essex on Christmas Eve but it was a very different sight to that of David's wife Victoria clutching their five-month-old daughter Harper.

The blonde mother was making her way back to her £250,000 four-bedroom home - which David bought for her - when she was seen with her child, and partner Kevin Briggs.

Wearing a long black cardigan, with matching leggings and boots, Lynne appeared to be wearing no make-up and had tied her hair back into a messy ponytail.

She wore a pair of black rimmed glasses and looked in good spirits as she walked with a female friend.

The father of her youngest child - who has previously spent time in prison and has 18 previous convictions - was dressed down wearing blue jeans, an old-looking Lonsdale sweater and scuffed trainers.

Strained relations: Lynne reportedly doesn't have the best relationship with David due to her choice in men

Despite the Beckham's travelling to the UK to enjoy Christmas, it is highly unlikely that David made a visit to Essex to catch up with his older sibling.

The pair's relationship is strained after David took a dislike to Lynne's ex-husband, Colin Every.

When Lynne married him back in 2009, David forced himself to attend the big day but Victoria refused.

The former Spice Girl must have been pregnant at the same time as Lynne last year but no doubt the women didn't swap health tips and motherly advice.

Brunette Harper rarely leaves her mother's side, but unlike Lynne's daughter, she is hardly ever seen without a cute designer outfit on.

Victoria is often spotted carrying the trendy youngster in an expensive looking dress and tights.

Lynne's little girl however modelled a star-print babygro and a bib as she sat on her mother's hip.

It has previously been reported that David has always helped provide for his sister.

However, last year Lynne was apparently in such dire financial straits that she was claiming £164 a week in handouts.
