Don’t pick an unusual name for Baby Cambridge. That’s father-of-four David Beckham‘s advice.
Beckham, 38, who named his eldest child Brooklyn, reckons the royal baby should be named David, if it’s a boy.
Asked for his baby-name thoughts, the soccer star told Sky News, “David’s not bad. I think they should go for David,” he said with a laugh.
He adds, “William’s been in all of our lives for so many years. We’ve seen William grow from that young boy into an unbelievable gentleman. That’s an amazing quality. And that as a father is so important.”
He added that he hopes one of his sporty sons – Brooklyn, Romeo or Cruz – follows in his footsteps.
“I’d love one of them to be a football player. It might end up being [daughter] Harper – she might go into it. If one of the boys go on to play football, then great,” he says. “I want them to be healthy and I want them to be fit.”
And they aren t the only ones keeping fit. “[Victoria]’s up at 6:30 every the morning, running. She’s very fit. Harper sits there and watches her.”
