Look out, Jolie-Pitt family – another star couple may be adding to their brood.
“If we were lucky enough to have another one, it would be great,” David Beckham, 36, says on Friday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “We always spoke about having a big family. We love children. We are very blessed to have four healthy children so if one comes along that would be amazing.”
Harper’s middle name and birth statistics – 7 lb. 10 oz., born at 7:55 a.m. Los Angeles time, in the seventh month of the year – reflected the Beckhams’ obsession with the number, which David wore as a member of the soccer team Manchester United.
That prompted DeGeneres to voice her own theory about the Beckhams’ potentially growing brood – “Lucky Sevens,” so to speak.
“You want five kids, so then it’s a seven,” she told him. “That’s probably why you’re doing it.”
“What can say?” the dashing athlete responded. “I love the number seven.”
