Break out the pink booties — Victoria Beckham is having a girl!
The former Spice Girl's soccer star husband, David Beckham, broke the good news at an L.A. Galaxy luncheon on Friday, according to the Daily Mail.
"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. The couple already has three sons: Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
"We're still in shock. 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," David added.
The news was probably most shocking for clothing designer Victoria, who told Vogue U.K. in a pre-pregnancy interview that she and David were hoping to expand their family but she never dreamed she'd have a daughter.
"Maybe one day another baby," she said, "but at this stage I think the chances of a girl are quite slim."
Baby Girl Beckham is due in July. "Our three boys are happy and excited," said David, "and Victoria is doing well."
