This morning, at 7:55 am Harper Seven Beckham became the luckiest little girl in all of La-la-land as her parents David and Victoria, and her three older brothers welcomed her to the world (via elective cesarian, same method of delivery as the spice girl formerly known as Posh's three previous births.)

If you were watching the news roll in this morning, you'd have think the footballer himself squeezed the little one out of his lady bits from the way the headlines read "David Beckham Has Fourth Child" although I'd bet Miss Harper Seven isn't too worried about it as Mommy's already likely jamming her little feet into tiny stilettos to so she learns to walk like a proper lady in towering heels, and showing her how to harness her Girl Power.
What's In A Name?
Harper Seven is a serious moniker for such a little lady, and already there is massive speculation as to where earth's newest celubutot got her name. The Beckhams famously named their oldest child Brooklyn (11) after the city they concieved him in, so.. maybe the LA Galaxy were making a pit stop in Harper Lee's hometown of Monroeville, Alabama? Got any guesses? The Beckhams have two other boys, Romeo (8) and Cruz (5).
And Seinfeld fans will of course look to claim the middle name as their own, George Costanza's choice for the perfect kid's (beautiful for a boy or a girl, says George) it's likely a tribute to Beckham's jersey number when he played for Manchester United.
Harper Seven, born in Los Angeles, is officially an American citizen, although her parents may have to start to process for her British citizenship stat if the rumors are true that the couple plan to move their newly broadened brood back to England after David's contract with the Galaxy expires this coming fall.
Proud Papa David announced the birth on his Official Facebook Page, while a family spokesperson notified the world via Twitter. Tweets went out almost immediately from the baby's biological aunt, as well as her Spice Aunties Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown (also expecting this year).
So, Beckham Baby #4 has arrived. Can you handle it? Did you win your office name pool?
