Victoria Beckham, 32, has been eating oranges and lemons in hopes that an acidic diet will help her have a daughter, says UK tabloid Closer. A source told the magazine: "She’s been told that a highly acidic diet will help her chances of conceiving a girl and as a consequence is eating loads of lemons, oranges, grapefruit and apples."

Victoria has also been advised to gain weight in order to get pregnant. She is 5’6” tall and weighs only about seven stone (45 kg; 99 lbs), meaning she is too underweight to conceive. During a recent holiday to Italy with husband David, 31, Victoria gave up on her salad diet for oysters and chocolate pudding in order to gain weight. The Beckhams have three sons – Brooklyn, 6, Romeo 3 1/2, and Cruz, 18 months.
