Victoria Beckham expecting a girl

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."

    I do believe all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for starters. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    The Beckham's are a class act, people w/ integrity & a solid work ethic. They have weathered much worse rumor, inuendo & lies than the haters on this site are dishing. They obviously love their boys & seem to feel lucky to be expecting a girl. These people are goodlooking, rich & well behaved. Haters can't even come up w/ good reasons to hate them, & must resort fantastical fairy tale comments. Careful, your jealousy is showing!

    First of all, I just want to congratulate the expectant parents and the soon to be big brothers. I am the only girl and the youngest with the 3 brothers. I've been spoiled most of my life and my brothers are very protective of me. As for all of these dumb a$$ people! Grow up! Unfortunately, I do not believe God is vengeful, so I don't think he will met out what these ignorant putzes deserve! But karma is a bi**h. I can only imagine that the people that were trying to hate must be uneducated, over-weight, unemployed or underemployed losers that blame everyone else for the reason their lives suck and they are so jealous that if envy was an illness, they would be terminal! Did u ever think that Victoria may have a health condition that causes her to be so skinny? And I don't mean anorexia! I personally have to take life saving medication that causes me to not be able to gain weight. So don't judge anyone! What's that about judge not? I believe that the Beckhams are beautiful people and they already have 3 beautiful children to prove that they will have a beautiful little girl as well! So stop with the hating & the jealous! God don't like ugly and all you haters should look in a mirror! You don't have to be ugly on the outside to be the ugliest person in the world! And another thing, if you don't like the Beckhams, why did you even read the damn article?!

    LORD, people!! This baby isn't even born!! You have no right to say she's ugly!! Now I don't know about you, but I'm more then sure that if the Beckham family said that your baby (unborn) would resemble Cousin It or is ugly, you would hate that!! Stop thinking horribley against the lucky family!!

    Shame on all the haters! You folks are just jealous and man does it show. It takes a real loser to call any child unborn or not ugly, maybe you should take a look in the mirror or better yet your comments.Blessings to the Beckham's I hope they have a healthy happy baby. It's sad how people with low self esteem and who have no money hate the people who do.

      That is soooo rude. It doesn't matter if she is pretty or not, and she is drop dead gorgeous by the way. Maybe her three brothers will protect her, it could be kinda awesome for her. No one fools with a girl who has three older brothers that adore her.
