A big Bridalwave congratulations to David and Victoria Beckham who welcomed daughter Harper Seven Beckham today. Already the parents of three boys: Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, six; the Beckhams were over the moon to finally add a little girl to their brood. Just think of all the lovely clothes and shoes little Harper will one day inherit from mum Victoria.
Harpers middle-name was decided upon because of its lucky associations – perhaps as well as daddy David’s football shirt as he wore the number seven shirt when he played for Manchester United and England. Funnily enough Harper also weighed a healthy 7lbs, arrived around 7pm yesterday morning and is born in the seventh month of the year. Lucky number seven!
David and Victoria have been married for twelve years now after tying the knot at Luttrellstown Castle, near Dublin, Ireland, on 4 July in 1999. After a small ceremony with just family and close friends the rising global super-couple treated hundreds of guests, all dressed in black and white by request of the bride and groom, to a lavish feast.
Victoria wore a champagne coloured satin Vera Wang wedding gown and a crown, which was matched to David’s ivory suit.
As a symbol of their love one single dove was released as they became husband and wife, and being the Spice Girl she was (and perhaps still is) Victoria did not include ‘obey’ in her vows to David.
