Baby number three has arrived for Britain’s highest-profile celebrity couple and, once again, the Beckhams have had a boy.
Dad David was beaming as he left the hospital in the Spanish capital where his pop star wife Victoria gave birth by caesarean section. Not surprisingly, the world’s media was eager for news.
“You know, we are very happy,” he told reporters.
“It was a week early. Everything is very well. The baby is very well and Victoria is really good so, you know, we are very happy.”
Cruz is the name of the new addition to the family, who weighed in at 3.22 kilos (7 lbs).
In Spanish it means “cross.”
The couple’s eldest son Brooklyn is five while Romeo is two.
News of Victoria’s pregnancy followed tabloid allegations that her husband had had an affair with his personal assistant, a claim the Real Madrid football star denied as “ludicrous.”
