One Direction caught up with David Beckham and his kids backstage at their gig at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles, on Wednesday night - and it seems the lads were only delighted to meet the soccer superstar.
Taking to his Twitter page, band member, Niall Horan, wrote: ''Met our footballing hero! Mr David Beckham! He brought the boys and his little girl to see us! What a Nice Man! So courteous! (sic)''
Underneath a picture of the two of them together, he added: ''what a great guy! Great t[o] meet him! absolute legend! (sic)''
Unfortunately, Niall's bandmate, Louis Tomlinson - who previously confessed he wanted to meet the soccer legend, missed out on meeting the sportsman.
Louis also took to his social networking site, writing: ''Gutted I didn't get to meet Beckham yesterday :(''
The band were in Los Angeles to kick off four nights at the 20,000-capacity venue.
