Daughter of Victoria and David Beckham

Having a name that sounds like a sci-fi TV series is about to be all the rage for babies across the nation, as Victoria and David Beckham named their first daughter… Harper Seven.
While she’s lucky not to be named after the place her parents conceived her, thus being subjected to the horrifying thought of that every so often when someone reminds her (poor Brooklyn, even if it’s just a rumour he’s stuck with it) she’s been lumbered with her dad’s football shirt number as her middle name.
Harper I can get on board with – not too girly in a house full of boys, a nice literary reference to Harper Lee… though perhaps it’s more likely that it’s Harper’s Bazaar. Still, Becks didn’t leave any clues or explanation in his statement, saying -
“I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham. She weighed a healthy 7lb and 10oz.
“Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister.”
Of course they are – now she’s a shiny new thing, soon she’ll be someone taking away all their parents’ attention… the sibling friction and jealousy will kick in soon. It’ll be all go in casa Beckham!

Their spokesman, Simon Oliveira, announced the happy news on Twitter.
“David & Victoria Beckham are delighted to announce the birth of their daughter” – he wrote.
In another posting, he added: “Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are excited to welcome their new baby sister to the family.”
Friends of the couple were quick to send their congratulations.
A delighted Mel B, who is expecting her third child later this year, expressed her excitement on Twitter, writing – “congrats!!! Yipeee another spice baby is born, damn it wish it was me this AM cos I feel like I’m about to POP!”
Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton also tweeted – “Big kiss to @victoriabeckham can’t wait to meet your gorgeous little girl!”
Before the baby’s name was confirmed, stylist Sally Lyndley alluded to a possible name for the newborn, writing – “congratulations on gorgeous baby Beverly!!! X.” While Brooklyn was named after the place where he was conceived, this appeared to suggest the pair (who live in Beverly Hills) had once again opted to name a child after a location close to their hearts.
While the name Harper is not unusual in the US, seven was David’s number with Manchester United and the England team.

The Beckhams, who married in 1999, already have three boys – Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5.
Mrs Beckham, the former Spice Girl, has previously spoken of her desire to have a daughter.
After the birth a spokesman said – “Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are excited to welcome their new baby sister to the family.”
The couple were aware that the baby was to be a girl. In March, Beckham told People magazine – “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.”
Last week the player took a photograph of his heavily pregnant wife in a bikini, when she wasn’t looking, and posted it on Facebook.
She had previously told Women’s Wear Daily that she did not like being photographed when pregnant, saying last month – “I don’t think anyone needs to see that, other than my husband. Absolutely not.”
David Beckham met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they arrived in Los Angeles on Friday night. On Saturday he scored the winning goal in a game for his team, LA Galaxy.
