Ever wonder how your favorite hockey player partakes in family life off of the rink? Here are a few fun facts about world-renowned hockey players and their children.

Wayne Gretzky is recognizably one of the greatest hockey players to ever participate in the National Hockey League. One of his greatest overall achievements in life was meeting and marrying the love of his life, Janet Jones. The couple has five children together: Paulina Mary Jean, Ty Robert, Trevor Douglas, Tristan Wayne, and Emma Marie. Along with being a father, a devoted husband and a renowned hockey player, Gretzky is also a business man. His current business ventures include the “Wayne Gretzky’s” restaurant in Toronto, opened in partnership with John Bitove in 1993. Gretzky is also a partner in First Team Sports, a maker of sports equipment and Worldwide Roller Hockey, Inc., an operator of roller hockey rinks.

Robert Gordon “Bobby” Orr is still the talk of the town in Boston, Massachusetts. The Boston Bruins icon was not only a success on the rink, but in his personal life as well. While vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida Orr met Peggy Wood, a Detroit native prominent in speech therapy. On Christmas Day in 1972, Orr asked for her hand in marriage. The two have since raised a beautiful, growing family. They have two sons, Darren and Brent. In 2009, Bobby Orr became a first time grandfather of granddaughter Alexis. Shortly after in January of 2011, Orr welcomes a second grandchild, Robert.

Victoria Beckham shares an adoring photo via Twitter this past Sunday. While newborn daughter, Harper Seven, is now an innocent four weeks old, she cuddles up with dad to form this photo that has us in awe. This black and white shot of Harper and soccer stud David Beckham was shared to the world in a Twitter picture and a caption saying, “I took this beautiful picture and wanted to share it with you, baby Harper cuddling Daddy! x VB”.

The A list couple David, 36, and Victoria, 37, also have three boys together. So how are the boys dealing with a girl now in the household? “We all feel so blessed and the boys love their baby sister so much!!!” says Victoria. While the Beckham’s are busy with their growing family, they certainly share time to flaunt their beautiful baby to the world through social media sites which has come to be an easy option for many stars to publically share what they are proud of.

Just a few days after giving birth in Los Angeles, Victoria tweeted, “Baby Harper is the most beautiful baby girl I have ever seen, I have fallen in love all over again!!!”

Congratulations to the Beckham’s and their growing family of boys and newest addition, baby girl, Harper Seven.
