Beckhams expecting a girl?

02/11/2005 at 08:39 AM ET

David and Victoria Beckham are expecting a baby girl, according to Spanish newspaper La Razon.

Despite claiming they were due to have a third son, the Real Madrid ace and the former Spice Girl are said to be awaiting the arrival of a much-longed-for daughter, whom they will name Luna. 

Last year, Victoria – who is due to give birth by Caesarean section later this month – said she wanted to call her unborn baby Luna, even though she said she was expecting another son.  Victoria said at the time: "I love the word luna [Spanish for moon]. I know it’s a girl’s name- so maybe for the next baby."

Victoria – who already has sons Brooklyn, five, and two-year-old Romeo – recently talked about the joy of having another child.  She said in an interview with Spanish magazine Gala: "We are very happy. I know it’s an obvious thing to say, but as long as the child is healthy, I don’t mind if it’s a boy or girl."

Victoria also vowed that the new baby will be born in Madrid – proving she has now settled in the Spanish capital, where David plays soccer. She added: "It will be very nice that the child is born here in Spain. He will have dual nationality – which means he will be available for the England and Spanish soccer teams!"

I think they are going to have another boy. Anyway Luna is also the italian word for “moon”. Luna is from latin, and then italian and spanish.

That article doesn’t make any sense. Why does it say that She IS expecting a girl when she has said they are having another boy, even in that article she refers to the new baby as a HE? I think she is saying that if they have a 4th baby and it’s a girl they would call her Luna.

Yeah, the article is saying she hoped to name the new baby Luna, but then found out it was a boy, so “maybe next time.”

I think it’s really sweet that David is so in love with the idea of having a little girl…a lot of guys seem so into having boys so it’s nice seeing a guy who REALLY REALLY wants a baby girl. I hope Victoria and him end up having one someday.
