Beckham, 41, spoke to Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week and couldn't stop gushing about her youngest child.

The last time she was on the comedian's show was seven years ago, so she had Harper since chatting with DeGeneres.

"She’s so great. And the boys are great with her. She’s a little tomboy. You know, she loves to wear little dresses, but then she loves to put her football boots on and get in the garden with her brothers and have a bit of rough and tumble, which I think is great," she said in a clip of the episode obtained by the Daily Mail.

Harper is the youngest and has older brothers Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, 10.

"They are really good kids, they work hard at school, they're happy, they're funny," she said. "They are just really good kids."

Beckham also gushed about her oldest, Brooklyn, who works at a cafe washing dishes, despite his rich, famous parents.

"I think it's great," she said. "For me and David, we work a lot, but the kids are everything."

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- After Grey's Anatomy killed off Patrick Dempsey's character, Dr. Derek Shepherd, a.k.a. McDreamy, the 49-year-old actor spoke to Entertainment Weekly about what next for him.

First, Dempsey has two projects he's working on, The Limit and Fodors, along with taking the "rest of the year off to develop."

He said, "I would like to be a producer. I would commit to a show that is 10 to 12 episodes. But 24 [episodes] again, I don’t know if I would do that. It’s a very hard life. It’s financially rewarding but there comes a point where how much is enough, really?”

Then, there's home life, where Dempsey is focusing on "being a father to my children," who include a daughter, Talula, and twin sons, Sullivan and Darby.

Finally, he has his racing. In fact, he was training overseas when the shocking episode aired Thursday night.


Dempsey added that he knew his fate on Grey's probably back in February or March.

When it comes to the end of an era, he said, "Shepherd is a beloved character. People don’t want to lose him. ... But it goes on, and it will evolve."

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Bruce Jenner spoke for the first time about how he is ready to put a lifetime struggle with gender identity behind him -- embrace being transgender and live the rest of his life as a woman.

“I’m actually really excited about the future ... about what I could do to be able to do some real good in the world, so I’m actually, for the first time in my life, looking forward to the future,” Jenner told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview that aired Friday in a two-hour special edition of ABC News’ 20/20.

During the interview, Jenner referred to himself using male pronouns and ABC News has chosen to follow his lead, though he also referred to himself as “Bruce” and “her.”

Jenner said he was excited and nervous about the transition that is already underway.

“Some people will get it, some people won’t get it, it’s OK,” Jenner said. “It’s going to take a lot of guts the next few months to go through this, especially just doing it publicly.”

Jenner has long hair again and is taking female hormones, saying “just kind of takes the edge off.”

In regards to full surgery, the transgender community asks that everyone respect others’ privacy and to steer away, but Jenner was open to taking about his decision in his interview with Sawyer, saying he has not decided anything yet and “Those things are all things that are out in the future for me to explore.”

Though any steps forward would include at least a year living as a woman as well as references, and even though Jenner said he already has those referrals.

Jenner showed Sawyer a closet of women’s clothes and told her how he hosts “girls' nights” at home with the curtains drawn. Jenner also plans to change his gender identity on his driver’s license.

Jenner has received love and support from family and friends, who said it will be an adjustment.

“I asked him, you know, ‘What do you want us to call you?’” said Jenner’s oldest daughter, Cassandra Marino. “And he just interrupted me and just said, ‘I’m Dad. You know, you can call me dad… I will always be your dad.’ And that was just a huge relief.”

Brody Jenner said: “I think all the traits that I loved about Bruce, she still has."

Complete Coverage: Bruce Jenner -- The Interview

ABC News reached out to Kris Jenner for this report, but she declined to comment.

Jenner’s fashion style will be more “conservative” than his famous stepdaughter Kim Kardashian, and he said he will change his name, though he joked that his new moniker will not start with a “K.”

A perfect day, Jenner said, would be to have just “an ordinary day that she can go out and enjoy herself, and not have any lies, have a great lunch, ... not being harassed by people, being accepted by society.”

“I just like blending in,” Jenner added. “That’s all I want to do is just blend in.”

As for getting married again, now that this path of transition has started, Jenner isn’t sure.

“I can’t even figure that side of it out,” Jenner said. “I just want to have a free soul, and have a lot of great friends.”

“I’m going to learn a lot in the next year,” Jenner added. “2015 is going to be quite a ride."

Photo by Taylor Hill/Getty Images(CHARLESTON, S.C.) -- Danny McBride and Anthony Bourdain are making the most of their time in Charleston, South Carolina.

Thursday evening, McBride, who's in town shooting a new series, Vice Principals, and Bourdain, who met with local chef Sean Brock, joined South Carolina local Bill Murray for a Charleston RiverDogs game.

"Bill owns a piece of the team, and Bill said, 'I'm going to the ballgame,' so they all agreed to go," Dave Echols, the general manager of the minor league team, told ABC News.

Murray, who attends RiverDogs games regularly, usually sits with the fans, Echols said, but because they were filming, the group sat in one of the suites. There, Echols said, the group likely was sent concession items unique to the ballpark.

"We probably took them a beer shake ... [and] a brisket ramen noodle bowl," Echols said. "I think we gave them a foot-long corn-dog wrapped in bacon."

As if the concession items weren't enough, the group also got to see a win, as the RiverDogs beat the Savannah Sand Gnats 4-2.

Michael Kovac/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — Sawyer Sweeten, who played one of Ray Romano's three children on the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, has died of a suspected suicide at the age of 19, his manager tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor is believed to have shot himself outside his family's home in Texas on Thursday. Sweeten played Geoffrey Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond, while his twin brother Sullivan played Michael Barone and their sister Madylin played Ray's daughter, Ally Barone.

Patricia Heaton who played Geoffrey Barone's mom on the series tweeted, “Sawyer Sweeten was a funny and exceptionally bright young man. He is gone from us far too soon.” She also tweeted, “The entire cast of #EverybodyLovesRaymond is in shock. Prayers for the Sweeten family."

Romano spoke about Sweeten's passing Thursday. He was quoted by Entertainment Tonight as saying, "I'm shocked, and terribly saddened, by the news about Sawyer. He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family, and his friends during this very difficult time."
