Beckhams expecting fourth child in summer

January 10, 2011 10:28 IST

David and Victoria Beckham are expecting their fourth child this summer, her spokeswoman said on Sunday.

The England soccer star and his fashion designer wife are based in Los Angeles, where he plays for LA Galaxy. They have three sons -- Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5.

"David and Victoria Beckham are delighted to confirm they are expecting their fourth child in the summer," Jo Milloy said in an emailed statement.

"Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are very excited about the arrival of their new brother or sister."

Milloy said there were no further details available.

The announcement came on the same day that Beckham's proposed loan move to English club Tottenham Hotspur fell through, although he will train with the London team.

The former Manchester United star and England captain has been married to former Spice Girl singer Victoria since 1999.

Beckham, 35, met Victoria Adams, 36, in the 1990s when she was known as 'Posh Spice' in the hugely successful girl band. The perfect media match-up, the couple were dubbed "Posh and Becks" and instantly catapulted into the limelight.

Beckham and Adams tied the knot in July 1999, a few months after their first son Brooklyn was born.
