After having three sons together, Victoria and David Beckham are pleased to announce that their fourth child will be a girl.
“Obviously, we’re very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I’m going to say it: It’s a little girl,” David said at an L.A. Galaxy fan luncheon.
“Were still in shock,” he added. “Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon. Our three boys are happy and excited, and Victoria is doing well.”
The Beckhams announced in January that they were expecting a fourth child. The baby girl is due in July, and will join three big brothers – ages 11,8, and 5.
“Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz are very excited about the arrival,” the couple’s rep said when the pregnancy was announced.
Former Spice Girl Victoria was interviewed by People magazine in February, and at the time, said she didn’t yet know the sex of the child but would be happy either way. “We know what to do with boys. But, if it’s a girl, we’d be over the moon as well.”
And it seems David has wanted a daughter for quite some time, telling the British press in 2009, “I really want more kids and I hope it happens soon. I want a little girl. That would be amazing.”
