David Beckham speaks out about 'his bundle of joy'

Monday July 18, 2011

David Beckham has spoken out for the first time about having a baby girl in the family.

"It's incredible, we have three beautiful healthy boys already and now having a daughter is a whole new thing," he said in a video posted on his Facebook page.

"You have to be a lot more delicate with girls than boys and I'm not used to that.

"It's a whole new experience but an amazing one to have that little bundle of joy in your hands."

The proud father also spoke about the meaning of the name Seven.

"A lot of people have assumed that it is just because of my shirt number that I wore for many years, and part of it is but that wasn't the main reason," he explained. 

"Seven simbolises spiritual perfection, seven wonders of the world, seven colours of the rainbow and in many cultures around the world it's regarded as a lucky number."

David also posted a picture of Harper's name stitched on his football boots together with the names of his three sons.

He chose the colour pink to highlight his joy of finally having a daughter.
