Victoria and David Beckham welcomed a baby girl to their family this past Sunday, July 10th. Despite recent gossip about the Beckham’s scheduling a Caesarean section for the 4th of July, Harper Seven Beckham was born 6 days shy of the alleged ‘set’ birth date. At a healthy 7lbs 10oz, the new Beckham baby has everyone talking.
David Beckham, the soccer superstar known and renowned in both Europe and America wore the number seven when he played for Manchester United and England. The couple already has three boys together and is proud to welcome a girl to the family.
Although it is unclear as to why David and Victoria are thought to have chosen the name Harper, they are said to have picked it because Harper is a popular moniker for both boys and girls in the U.S. While Seven was decided upon because it is considered a lucky digit. The baby girl was, after all, born on the seventh month of the year! A source in Los Angeles told The Sun newspaper: “The couple loved the name Harper. It has no hidden meaning – they just fell for the name and think it has a lovely sound.
For all of you Seinfeld fans out there, George Castanza also admired the name Seven. Not only was it David Beckham’s number, it was also the number worn by none other than New York Yankees legend, Micky Mantle! Harper Seven is one lucky daughter.
