Steven Gerrard was playing the doting father role on Saturday morning as his eldest daughter celebrated her ninth birthday.

The Liverpool captain is outnumbered at home with his wife Alex and three daughters, Lexie, Lily-Ella and Lourdes.

The Gerrard family are set for a big lifestyle change in the coming months after the 34-year-old midfielder agreed a move to Major League Soccer outfit LA Galaxy.

And the Liverpool captain, who could face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the final time on Sunday afternoon, uploaded a cute photo of his birthday girl.

Gerrard wrote on his Instagram page: “Happy birthday babe I love you so much . Have a lovely day #Lexie #9today”

Gerrard has 183 goals in 706 appearances in all competitions since the midfielder made his Liverpool debut in 1998.

The former England captain has won the Champions League, the Uefa Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups during his Anfield career.
