The Beckhams have announced this weekend that they are expecting their fourth child in the summer.

David Beckham took to his Twitter posted onto his Facebook page stating: “I’ve got great news to tell you. Victoria and I are expecting a fourth child this summer.” Further adding “The boys are very excited about the arrival of their new brother or sister”.

Sources closes to the couple have said that they wish not to know the sex of the child until they are born, however it’s been pretty evident that they would like a girl to add to their brood of 3 boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

Mum-to-be Victoria, is said to be continuing to work whilst pregnant and is currently prepping her latest collection ready to show next month. Maybe she’ll debut a dabble into maternity wear? Taking to her Twitter page Victoria thanked her fans for their kind messages: “Thank u so much for your kind and beautiful messages!!!we are all so happy and very excited!!!!!!x vb x’

The singer-turned-designer will also have another Caesarean like the other kids, because there are risks involved with having a natural birth after already having a c-section. It also means you can get nipped and tucked to get rid of any baby weight.

The news must come as a great start to 2011 after their relationship suffered a blow with allegations of David cheating with a prostitute, they turned out to be fake and are now suing the hoe.
