How Did Harper Seven Get Her Name?
The Beckhams welcomed their new baby daughter, Harper Seven, on Sunday. So how did the littlest and newest Beckham get her name?
A friend of the Beckhams says that Harper is an old English name that Victoria has always loved, and 'Seven' was chosen because it is considered a very lucky spiritual number. Seven was also David's jersey number for Manchester United and the English national team.
In addition, Harper Seven was born Sunday morning in L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center weighing 7 lbs. (and 10 oz.) in the seventh hour in the seventh month – on the seventh day of the week.
And bets of what Victoria and David's little princess will grow up to be are already being placed and the Irish bookmaking firm Paddy Power has offered odds of 100:1 on Harper following in dad’s footsteps and going out for the England Women’s team.
The odds of her becoming a singer in the mode of her former Spice Girl mother are 16:1.
Harper is the first girl for Victoria and David Beckham, who are parents to three boys, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8½, and Cruz, 6½.
