The Beckhams have expressed their excitement following the announcement of Victoria’s pregnancy with a fourth child, due this coming summer.
A twitter update of the 32 year old star said “Thank you so much for your kind and beautiful messages!! we are all so happy and very excited!!!!!!!x vb x”
The ex-Spice Girl and her former Manchester United and England player husband David have been married since 1999, and already have three sons; Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight and Cruz, five and are hoping for a girl to add to their family portrait.
Victoria Beckham told the February 2011 issue of Vogue magazine that she was open to the idea of having a fourth child, she said “maybe one day another baby, but at this stage I think the chances of a girl are quite slim”.
She said in another interview that she could imagine “painting her nails, putting on make up and choosing clothes” with a potential daughter. Is the style guru looking to ensure that her fashion and glamour is infused into future generations?
Despite the desperation for a baby girl to add to their brood, close friends have revealed that the couple do not want to know the sex of the child before it is born.
A spokeswoman for Victoria Beckham refused to give a specific due date or state which stage she was at in the pregnancy, but it is believed to be due sometime this summer.
She said that both their families were “naturally delighted” with the news.
The football star posted an update on his Facebook page telling fans and friends: “I’ve got great news to tell you. Victoria and I are expecting a fourth child this summer.
“The boys are very excited about the arrival of their new brother or sister.”
Mrs Beckham will endure another Caesarean section because of the risks of a natural birth having previously had the operation.
