Victoria and David Beckham have announced that they are expecting their fourth child this summer. The couple has been married for eleven and a half years and already has three children together: Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5.
David revealed the news on his Facebook page yesterday: "Victoria and I are expecting our fourth child this summer. The boys are very excited about the arrival of a new brother or sister."

According to Celebitchy, this announcement comes merely months after Posh said, in a recent interview with Vogue UK, that the couple was happy with their three children and had no plans to try for a little girl. "I think one day, if we’re blessed to have more children, it would be amazing," Victoria, 36, said. "It’s a lot having three boys. So, we’re just enjoying the boys at the moment. But who knows, one day?"
Well that one day seems to have come, and Victoria expressed her enthusiasm on Twitter today: "Thank u so much for your kind and beautiful messages!!!we are all so happy and very excited!!!!!!x vb x"
So now the big question on everyone's mind is, will the couple finally have a girl? Posh doesn't seem too optimistic. In a forthcoming interview in the February issue of Vogue (which also marks Posh’s sixth appearance on the magazine’s cover), Victoria hinted that she had given up on her hope of a baby girl saying, "I think the chances of a girl are quite slim," she said. (Actually, the chances of Posh having a girl are 50/50, which are always the gender odds for any woman’s pregnancy, even despite a pattern in previous children’s genders.)
Mrs. Beckham had cesareans with her first three children, prompting a tabloid to coin the phrase: "too posh to push." She is expected to deliver her fourth child in the same fashion.
Though Posh and David’s marriage has seen their rough patches (in 2004 it was rumored that David had been involved with his personal assistant, Rebecca Loos. Daivd denied the claims). And since then, he's made it his top priority to stomp out any infidelity allegations. In 2010 he sued In Touch and their source for claiming he'd hired a prostitute.

Victoria and David seem more rock solid than ever these days. Last year, in David's acceptance speech for winning the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Sports Personality of the Year Awards, he said, "Of course, I want to thank my wife and my children. Not only has she given me three amazing boys... she is truly an inspiration for me every single day." A new baby (especially a girl—a baby posh) will certainly be a welcomed addition to their tight-knit crew.
