Lucky seven: Proud Posh and Becks name baby girl

2011-07-12 00:00

DAVID and Victoria Beckham have named their newborn daughter Harper Seven.

The soccer superstar — who wore a number seven shirt when he played for Manchester United and England — revealed the baby’s name in a posting on his Facebook page and said both mother and baby, who was born on Sunday morning, are “doing well”.

Beckham, who with Victoria already has three sons, Brooklyn (12), Romeo (eight) and Cruz (six), wrote, “I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham … Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister.”

The couple are thought to have chosen the name Harper because of its “lovely sound”, while Seven was decided upon because it is considered a lucky number.

A source in Los Angeles told The Sun newspaper, “The couple loved the name Harper. They went for Seven as they think it is a lucky and spiritual number. And the baby arrived around 7 am in July — the seventh month.” — Bang!Showbiz
