THE BECKHAM BUNCH!
David and Victoria Beckham gave the world a sneak peek of their newborn daughter Harper Seven, posting personal snapshots on their Twitter and Facebook accounts July 17. “Daddy’s little girl!” Victoria, 37, captioned a photo of David rubbing noses with the baby, who was born July 10 in L.A. David, 36, snapped a shot of his wife with Harper, writing, “I took this picture of my two girls sleeping.” Victoria tweeted that their sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, “love their baby sister so much!” The proud parents chose the name Harper because it’s an old English name that Victoria has always loved, while seven is considered a lucky spiritual number. In addition, Harper Seven was born weighing 7 lbs. (and 10 oz.) in the seventh hour in the seventh month-and on the seventh day of the week.
