All the gang together: David and Victoria Beckham join his siblings for a party to celebrate sister Joanne”s birthday

As they live in Los Angeles for most of the year, it must be hard for the Beckhams to see a lot of their UK-based family.

But as they are over here for Christmas and New Year, it gives them the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with them.

And last night, David got the chance to hang out with his sisters Joanne and Lynne as he and wife Victoria joined the girls for a party to celebrate Joanne”s birthday.

And from her Tweets, Joanne had no idea that David and Victoria had arranged the surprise dinner for his younger sibling.

She knew she was going to her favourite restaurant Roka, a modern Japanese place in the heart of Fitzrovia in central London.

But she was surprised to see her close friends and family there and Tweeted: “Aww turned up at my fav restaurant and can”t believe my close friends and family was here !!!! Amazin !!! So happy.”

And clearly David was delighted to see his sister so happy that he arranged for a group photo that he promptly posted on his Facebook page and wrote: “Merry Xmas everyone….just at my little sister Jo”s birthday party tonight.”

Beckham can be seen beaming at the back of the photo with the birthday girl right next to him on his right and his eldest sister Lynne in front.

And the cheeky footballer couldn”t resist acting a bit childishly as he put two fingers up behind Joanne”s head.

Victoria stood off to the side on the right in between two of Joanne”s friends as someone captured the moment.

But clearly the fancy Japanese food wasn”t enough for David, who has probably been craving some good old English food while in the US.

Because he posted another picture to his Facebook page, this time just off him looking very happy as he posed with a big bowl of food at a pie and mash shop in London.
