Pitter Patter: David & Victoria Beckham Welcome A Baby Girl

I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven  Beckham. She weighed a healthy 7lbs 10oz and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA. Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a  baby sister xx.

Since we’ve been waiting for news on this matter with almost as much excitement as the proud pappy, it fills us with overwhelming joy to kick off our week with the news that Harper Seven Beckham has been born. Contrary to reports that the Beckhams’ fourth baby was due on the same date as the American Independence Day holiday, the latest Beckham bubba made her debut on 10th July and her parents very kindly saved us the trouble of speculating wildly about what her name might be by announcing it promptly.

We can now direct all of our energy towards bickering about its origins. Suggestions from the Kickette staff to date include homages to Harper Lee, whose 1960 novel ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ is sure to be a family favourite, Seinfeld’s George Costanza, Saved By The Bell’s Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Erykah Badu.

We believe it only appropriate that you have your opportunity to throw your suggestions into the ring. You do that while we start jonesing for photos.

    I'm actually very happy for them and I love the name! They seem loving and stable…I really admire that. Sometimes we forget that just because people have lots of money, it doesn't mean they don't have the same problems as we do….and sometimes they have more. I don't think I could handle the pressure of my every move being scrutinized…and vicious gossip always circulating. Through thick and thin they have always stuck together. Good for them!

    congratulation beckham family…wuhuu we can't wait to see you harper :D

  3. Marina_Isabella says:

    naming your child a number, is just… ugh! oh and Harper?… really?… I had better expectations. But now I remember, oh yes! they're celebrities, they're supposed to give their children 'different' kind of names, not what the rest the mere mortals of this world are called… you know, susie, annie, laura, etc. Ridiculous.

  4. Hannah says:

    Apparently Victoria has said that Harper was a traditional English name that she had always liked, and Seven was chosen because she was born on the seventh day of the week in the seventh month, seven is a lucky number, and probably also because David's number was seven.

    A BIG Congratulations to the Beckham family! Finally we have a girl…
    hope (or should I say I'm predicting) she grows up as pretty, hot and posh as her parents!
    suri and shiloh watch out! ;) :):D

  6. gillianrosh says:

    Congrats to the Beckham fam. And I am digging the name Harper Seven.

  7. Agnes Wonka says:

    congrats to them :) I like the name Harper, is cool, but I don't understand Seven! I guess it's just the Hollywood fashion to put very awkward names.

  8. Lotte says:

    Congratulations to them all! Just think of having three older brothers. And I love the name Harper. Beautiful and cool.

  9. JA7 says:

    Harper is a lovely name..but I don't know about the adding a number to ur name part..oh well congratz to the stylish couple!

  10. earidurt says:

    harper is a lovely name. i love it. how fabulous is this little girl gonna be? i can just see her now strutting her stuff down the street alongside her stylish mom. so happy for them. their little family is now complete. congrats !!!!

  11. Lalaland says:

    Maye the boys are fans of Wizards of Waverly place? :D

  12. Liselotte says:

    I’m sorry, but I hate that name, it’s just not cute. I just don’t get that American custom (I know the Beckhams are british) of using surnames as first names, especially on girls. It sounds more like a boy’s name than a girl’s.
    I just hope she doesn’t get bullied when she grows up anyway, poor thing.

  13. Donna C says:

    I'm so so so happy they finally got a baby girl they always dreamed of. That baby will be looked after so well I bet her brothers and dad will be very over protective and she'll be so spoiled.

  14. xoWinnie says:

    i'm so happy for them! they now have the family they always wanted! *tears*
    i wish Posh a speedy recovery, and hope she and David are enjoying their little girl!
    can't wait to see pics of the little girl when she starts to walk,
    holding hands with her big brothers! how CUTE will that be!?!

  15. backoffmyNando says:

    Yesterday was my sweet Sixteen!! Who would have thought that I would share a birthday with soccer royalty? ;) And Harper is such a pretty name. I think it would really fit her :)

  16. mena says:

    I dunno if the inspiration was Harper Lee. David & Victoria don't seem like big book readers so I don't see them being familiar with Harper Lee and the boys are too young to have read "To Kill a Mockingbird" in school.

    Maybe David & Victoria saw HBOs Angels in America on TV and fell in love with the delirious & desperate drug addict, Harper Pitt, played by Mary Louise Parker. I could see Victoria identifying with that character.

  17. Cay says:

    Aw, Harper is such a pretty name. As for Seven, it does actually sound quite pretty next to "Harper," and I'm glad that they gave her the more "normal" name first and the more creative one second, unlike so many other famous couples.

    Congrats to Posh and Becks! I can't wait to see that baby's wardrobe….

  18. Stefania says:

    Congrats Beckham family on the new baby girl, finally!!! And Harper is a really pretty name as well!!! I can't wait to see what she looks like!!!

  19. Sergz says:

    I'm really glad for the family. They FINALLY gave birth to a baby girl that they have wanted for so long, I just hope that she'll grow up to be healthy and not spoilt (as some kids are).

    And as a United fan I love the fact that her name is Harper Seven! That number is special. :)

  20. Alex says:

    Congratulation. Welcome Harper :)

  21. Kristina says:

    I am going to just run with the idea that the Beckhams love them some Seinfeld. That would make me love Posh even more than I already do.

  22. beri says:

    Glad for them…they have their little girl at last! The name is a bit strange, but it's their choice and I'm sure they have their reason…

  23. mochara says:

    Harper Seven isn't as bad as some names that i've heard, how about Number 16 Bus? Or Talula Does The Hula In Hawaii? They're actually names!

    • Yes! I know twins named Orangejello and Lemonjello! I'm not kidding. Their mom was craving orange and lemon flavored jello when she was preggers with them.

  24. Zahara says:

    aww congrats to the happy family!

  25. Kleon says:

    Harper is ok, but Seven? O.o But seriously, Seven?

  26. footballandme says:

    Victoria, David, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper – The Power Family of The World!

    Although Harper "Seven" is a bit strange but hey, whatever floats your boat :)

  27. french dressing says:

    I'm guessing "Harper" after Harper Lee, because it's a very American name, and "Seven" because she was born at 7am (-ish!) in the 7th month, weighed 7lbs (-ish!) and Becks found fame as a number 7 at Man Utd.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is now cursing that he didn't call his kid Cristiano Ronaldo Seven!

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      LOL! I was thinking too, how come Cristano didnt think of the name seven!

    • IrishBlue says:

      Aahh, makes sense now. Still a bit odd though.

    • Mariella says:

      doubtful that either Victoria or David know who Harper Lee was/is. Haper is a beautiful name. Well chosen.

    • Cay says:

      Harper is actually a very old English name.

    • xoWinnie says:

      LOL @ Ronaldo joke haha!

    • YvoYeungGirl says:

      Love the name Harper, it is timeless, classic, and will be a name that will last through all stages of life. Seven, i get the concept, but really, should numbers be names? Very unsure about that….. She will grow up to be a beautiful babe with a gorgeous closet! Be honest, who's jealous of this lovely bundle of cuteness?

    • A to L says:

      Don't worry if CR7 ever has a girl he would probably call it Cristiana Ronalda, either that or he would name her Dolores after his mum. If he had another boy it would probably be named Ronaldo Cristiano or Jose after his father. Despite his vanity, ego & horrible taste in woman I'm pretty sure he makes a good father.

  28. IrishBlue says:

    Awh she finally got her girl! the boys must be thrilled and I'm sure they will be great big brothers to that little one! I just want to know what the 'Seven' is about?

  29. Sarah, Madrid says:

    I am really waiting for the picture, might be one of few celebrities babies that I am very anxious to see. The name, ok! She has a beckham last name in the end of the day.

    How cute is Romeo beckham wanted to name her Justin Bieber Beckham, so yeah I would say Harper Seven sound better lol :) .

    Suggestion, Named after the magazine maybe? :p
