Baby Beckham #4 has been given an unusual, yet pretty name … Harper Seven! Harper is the first girl for the Beckham family of six so, where did the number seven come from?
Daddy, David explains to US Magazine: “A lot of people have assumed that it’s just because it was my shirt number that I wore for many years, and part of it is,” the 36-year-old father of four says. In addition to Harper Seven, born July 10, the Beckhams have three sons: Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6. “Part of it is because I had so much luck around wearing that number, wearing it for England, wearing it for Manchester United. It was such an influential number throughout my career, and a lucky number, but that wasn’t the main reason.”
Mommy, Victoria also had a say in her daughter’s name! David goes on to share in the article that quote, “Harper was a beloved “old English name,” he explained. Also, Victoria’s favorite book, the classic American novel To Kill a Mockingbird, was written by author Harper Lee.”
