- “Posh Spice” Victoria Beckham and soccer star hubby David Beckham are the parents of a second son, whose Shakespearean name was a surprise after much speculation.
Romeo was born by Caesarean section and weighed 7 lbs, 4 ounces, said David Beckham, adding that the pop singer mother and son were doing fine.
“We’re both delighted,” a beaming Beckham told reporters outside Portland Hospital.
Romeo’s older brother, 3-year-old Brooklyn, was at the hospital to see the newborn, David Beckham said.
“Brooklyn’s just in awe of him. He’s absolutely gorgeous,” said Beckham, who plays for England and Manchester United.
The Beckhams are one of Britain’s most famous couples, and bookmakers had been taking bets on the name of the new baby. Brooklyn reportedly was named after the New York borough where he was conceived. That spawned speculation that his sibling might be named Paris or Trafford, the home of Manchester United’s stadium.
David Beckham said the name Romeo had no special significance.
“It’s just a name we love,” he said.
Very glad all is well – never heard of David Beckham.
