Celebrity royalty David and Victoria Beckham welcomed a new addition to their family on Sunday morning with the birth of a baby girl. They have announced her name as Harper Seven Beckham.
Harper, who weighed 7lbs 10oz, was born at 7.55am in the Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She is the fourth child for the footballer and former pop star joining brothers Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8 and Cruz aged 6.
Curiously there are not six Harpers already in the family but the Seven refers the famous shirt worn by Beckham during his Manchester United and England days. Harper apparently comes from Victoria’s love for traditional names is also currently popular in America.
While numbering a child can risk making it sound like a Gerry Anderson spacecraft it’s hardly the most controversial celebrity name. Past invites to bullying include fellow Spice Girl Geri Halliwell’s daugther Bluebell Madonna, Jason Lee’s child Pilot Inspektor and the best of them all, Frank Zappa’s actress daughter Moon Unit Zappa.
David made the annoucement via his Facebook page stating “I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham. Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister.”
Fellow Spice Girls took to twitter to publicly sending their delight with Mel B saying “congrats!!! Yipeee another spice baby is born, damn it wish it was me this AM cos I feel like I’m about to POP!”
Emma Bunton added “Big kiss to @victoriabeckham can’t wait to meet your gorgeous little girl!”
The LA Galaxy player and one time Spice Girl have been married since 1999. The couple have been based in the United States since David signed for MLS Side LA Galaxy in 2007, ending his time at Spanish Giants Real Madrid.
It has been a busy weekend for the Beckham family as David and Victoria met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they arrived on their tour a California on Friday. On Saturday David scored the winning goal for LA Galaxy direct from a corner as they defeated Chicago Fire by 2 goals to 1.
