Mum to be Victoria Beckham, who is experiencing intense cravings for marmalade of all things during her current pregnancy, is said to be, “over the moon” at the news that her fourth child due later this year is to be a girl.
A family friend told The Sun, “David and Victoria are over the moon. This will be their last child and to be told they are having a girl is the icing on the cake for the Beckham clan.”
Victoria, 36, better known as Posh Spice after her time with The Spice Girls, had a scan at Rivers Hospital in January where the sex of the child was unable to be identified.
Many sonographers are able to identify a baby`s sex at 20 weeks, but highly trained ones may detect it at around 16 weeks, so after a recent 16 week ultra sound scan Posh was told that the child she is carrying is a girl. After another scan, this time a 4D one, Mum and baby were healthy and progressing well.
Ironically Victoria`s sister, Louise, had her fourth child late last summer and this too was a girl.
Victoria has often spoke about her and her husband David`s wish for a daughter to go with their three sons, Brooklyn 11, Romeo 8, and Cruz who is 5.
The friend of the family also told the newspaper, “Victoria is 36 and David is thinking about life after retirement. For them, with a sister for their boys – who are growing up fast – this is the perfect family.
“All their dreams have come true. They couldn’t have wished for more.”
Good news for all of The Beckhams` then. Supermarkets everywhere had better stock up on the marmalade in the upcoming months.
