'We were told it was a boy': Beckhams' baby surprise

Wednesday March 16, 2011

David Beckham has revealed he and Victoria were initially told that the child they're expecting was a boy.

His 36-year-old wife is five months pregnant with a sister for their three sons.

The football superstar told US interviewer Ryan Seacrest: "When you've had three boys you just kind of assume that you're going to have another one."

"Funnily enough when we went to have the three-month scan [the doctors] said, 'Oh it looks like a boy.'"

The 35-year-old added: "We were like, 'Oh, OK, great. Almost like a five-aside team.'"

"And then we went back and they were like, 'Actually, it's a girl.' The emotion hit us. It's amazing."

The couple are already parents to 11-year-old Brooklyn, eight-year-old Romeo and Cruz, five.
