On Sunday, Victoria Beckham and husband David Beckham welcomed a new baby girl into the family. Harper Seven Beckham is the couple’s first daughter. Victoria and David Beckham are already parents to three boys, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6.

An unidentified source allegedly told Us Weekly the newest Beckham child was named Harper because it is “an old English name that [Victoria] has always liked.” As for that odd middle name, Seven, well… it is soccer star David Beckham’s old jersey number. The source, however, says the number for a middle name means more than that. “Seven is a very spiritual lucky number. [Harper] was born in the seventh month, in the seventh hour.”

Harper Seven Beckham was born on Sunday at 7:55AM in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. David Beckham announced the birth on his Facebook page last night. “I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham,” the proud daddy posted.

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) Tweeted her congrats to the happy couple, saying she “can’t wait to meet your gorgeous little girl!”

Melanie Brown, who is expecting her own third child at any time, also posted a congrats message to Twitter. “@victoriabeckham congrats!!! Yipeee another spice baby is born, damn it wish it was me this AM cos I feel like I’m about to POP!”
