Soccer phenomenon David Beckham sent fans into a frenzy Sunday when he posted a photo on his Facebook page of wife Victoria resting with their newborn daughter. David wrote, “I took this picture of my two girls sleeping.”
Victoria, 37, also tweeted a picture Sunday of David, 36, lovingly holding their newborn daughter. She’s “Daddy’s little girl,” Victoria explained.
Harper Seven was born July 10 at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. David and Victoria also have three sons: Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6.
On Thursday, fashion designer Victoria tweeted that “baby Harper is the most beautiful baby girl I have ever seen. I have fallen in love all over again!”
She went on to explain, “We feel so blessed and the boys love their baby sister so much.”
Media outlets have been speculating on the origin of Harper Seven Beckham’s name.
Again, through Facebook, David explained, “A lot of people have assumed that it’s just because it was my shirt number that I wore for many years, and part of it is. Because I had so much luck around wearing that number, wearing it for England, wearing it for Manchester United. It was such an influential number throughout my career, and a lucky number, but that wasn’t the main reason. It symbolizes spiritual perfection, Seven Wonders of the World, seven colors of the rainbow, and in so many cultures around the world, it’s regarded as a lucky number,” he explained. “We love the name. We love Harper Seven.”
He also revealed their daughter’s first name, Harper, was a beloved “old English name.” Also, Victoria’s favorite book, the classic American novel To Kill a Mockingbird, was written by author Harper Lee.
