They didn’t keep us waiting long! Just hours after announcing the birth of their fourth child, a little girl, David and Victoria Beckham have revealed their new daughter’s name.
“I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham,” David wrote on his Facebook page Sunday. “She weighed a healthy 7lbs 10oz and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA.”
Harper Seven? What happened to Harpers one-through-six?
The reason for the odd choice of middle name? David’s soccer jersey number is “7.” Brooklyn was named after the place where he was conceived, so why not their new arrival? But while the inspiration for ‘Seven’ seems clear, it’s less apparent where Harper may have come from. It was widely expected the couple would name their first daughter after a place name.
David and Victoria, who married in 1999, already have three boys – Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five.
