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.
