“I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham,” he writes. “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” omitted because the thought of Beckham kisses overwhelms us.]
Harper is probably the tamest name of all the Beckham children so far — but what’s with the Seven? Well, considering the baby’s weight, month and time of birth, it’s not that much of a stretch.
And everyone knows that Beckham’s successful tenure playing for Manchester United were spent with a “7” on his jersey.
