GALAXY: Beckham's a dad, again
By Scott French
Galaxy star David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, are parents again. Simon Oliveira, the superstar midfielder's representative, reported via Twitter that the couple fourth child, a daughter, was born Sunday morning at Cedars Sinai in West L.A., weighing in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces.
They have three sons: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5.
The child was to be delivered by caesarean section, Beckham said last week.
“It's a waiting game, you know,” he said after training Thursday. “It's due anytime this week, this week and next week, so -- as anybody knows that's had babies -- it's a waiting game now, but my wife is more than ready.
“She'll have a C-section because she can't have a baby naturally. We've done that with all three of the other boys.”
No name has yet been announced.
Beckham, who is dealing with a minor spinal fracture, scored directly from a corner kick and set up Landon Donovan from another corner in the Galaxy's 2-1 victory Saturday night over Chicago at Home Depot Center.
