David Beckham Gushes Over Baby Girl, Explains Name Harper SevenWendyM
As if we needed another reason to swoon over David Beckham, check out his Facebook page, where he gushes over new baby girl Harper Seven.
Beckham has posted videos on Facebook where he talks about his new baby girl, including how they chose her name.
Beckham explains that having a girl “is really incredible,” adding, “We’ve got three beautiful, healthy boys already and we’re so lucky to have that and now to have a beautiful little girl, it’s amazing.”
David also talks about the changes – including having more pink and lilac around – and notes that “you have to be a lot more delicate with girls than with boys and I’m not used to that so it’s a whole new experience but it’s an amazing experience.”
Beckham sums it up well, however: “To have that little bundle of joy and your hands and her making her little noises and opening her eyes – it really is an incredible moment for us.”
As for the name Harper Seven, it’s time to put the speculation away about where the names came from (including the Seinfeld Seven reference!). He explains that “Harper is an old English name which we loved” as well as being the name of the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Victoria’s favorite book.
Seven, in part, is for the soccer shirt number he wore, noting that he “had so much luck around wearing that number and it was such an influential number throughout my career and a lucky number,” but pointing out the luck worldwide of the number seven.
Overall, David Beckham shares, “We love the name. We love Harper Seven and we’re very proud of having her in our family.”
So totally cute. Harper is totally going to be daddy’s little girl!
