Princess Kate‘s little girl shares her birthday with Prince William‘s friend David Beckham.

The soccer superstar turns the big 4-0 today and has jetted to Morocco with his wife Victoria for a big celebration.

But he has even more reason to pop the champagne corks as the royal baby shares his May 2 birthday.

Weeks before William and Kate’s first child, Prince George, was born on July 22, 2013, Becks, who attended the couple’s wedding with his wife, was asked what his friends should call their baby.

“David’s not bad. I think they should go for David,” the father of four laughed.

After the announcement was made, Beckham shared his congratulations for the royal family.

“Incredible news.,” he wrote on Facebook. “I couldn’t be happier for William and Kate. Happy to hear that mother and daughter are fine. It’s not a bad day to be born.”

Not bad at all!
