It's official... Victoria is expecting a baby Spice Girl, reveals David

VICTORIA and David Beckham are officially tickled pink.

The LA Galaxy star (35) has revealed that he and his wife of 11 years are expecting a baby girl to add to their brood of three boys.

The high-profile couple revealed in January that they are expecting another baby, and despite reports earlier this year that the pair were expecting the girl, they insisted they did not know the sex of the baby.

However, David has now confirmed the speculation at a fan luncheon in California, saying: "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."

"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," he said.

"Our three boys are happy and excited, and Victoria is doing well."

Victoria (36) has been rocking 'maternity chic' in true fashionista form, and has been spotted sporting six-inch heels, despite being five months pregnant.



CRAZY

And style watchers have praised the mum-to-be for sticking to her favourite black leather pants.

The former Spice Girl has made no secret of the fact that she would love to have a little girl to spoil, saying: "We have so much testosterone in our house, it is crazy."

Victoria and David are already parents to Brooklyn (11), Romeo (8), and Cruz (5) and she is set to give birth in LA in July.

Beckham admitted recently: "I'd love a little girl. We're blessed to have three beautiful boys already, and if we're blessed to have another one or two children, that would be amazing.

"Three boys is difficult at times, but there's nothing that gives you that feeling of coming home and seeing the kids and spending time with them.

"There's nothing better in the world than that. If you're a parent, then you realise that feeling."

The Beckhams will attend the royal wedding next month before heading back to Los Angeles for their daughter's birth.
