Congratulations to Victoria and David Beckham who welcomed a baby girl into the world! Their fourth child and first girl, the former Spice Girl and soccer star named the family’s newest addition Harper Rose. Harper is a traditional English name, and the middle name Seven pays tribute to her dad’s soccer number.
Harper weighed 7 lbs., 10 oz. and was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday, July 10. Despite her US citizenship, Posh Spice is also telling friends that she wants her daughter to grow up to be like Kate Middleton, which is not that unlikely considering the couple made the guest list at the April Royal Wedding.
“[The couple's sons] Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are excited to welcome their new baby sister to the family,” the couple’s spokesperson Jo Milloy told People.com.
