LONDON – David Beckham’s spokesman said that the soccer star’s wife Victoria has given birth to a healthy baby girl on Sunday.
Simon Oliveira said that the celebrity couple are “delighted to announce the birth of their daughter.”
“Happy and healthy she arrived at 7.55 am this morning at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and weighed 7lbs 10oz,” Oliveira posted on Twitter, adding that the Beckhams’ three sons “are excited to welcome their baby sister to the family.”
The Beckhams, who married in 1999 and whose celebrity is entrenched on both sides of the Atlantic, already have three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. On his Facebook page, David Beckham said the girl had been named Harper Seven Beckham.
The the little girl was born the morning after Beckham scored directly from a corner kick to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Fire, extending his team’s Major League Soccer unbeaten streak to 12 matches.
