Bio and birth dates - facts on the Beckham clan, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven
Bursting into our consciousness in 1994 when she joined the now iconic girl group The Spice Girls, Victoria (then Adams) was nicknamed Posh Spice after her love of glossy high-end designers and her slick bob hairdo.
Victoria first met David Beckham, who was the star football player for Manchester United at the time, in 1997 after he asked to be introduced to Victoria as he had a crush on her! The couple were quickly dubbed 'Posh and Becks' and became the new celebrity power couple.
Victoria announced that she was pregnant with hers and David's first child in 1998. Victoria admitted at the time that she was surprised she fell pregnant by accident during a Spice Girls tour, as she had previously suffered from Polycystic Ovaries (PSCOS).
Posh admitted that she suffered terrible morning sickness while on tour and she also revealed that her pregnancy cravings included craved pickled onions, marmite on toast and fruit pastelles.
Victoria and David welcomed their first baby, a boy named Brooklyn, in March, 1999, at the Portland Hospital, London. Baby Brooklyn weighed 7lbs and was born via an emergency caesarean because Brooklyn's head wasn't properly engaged.
The Beckhams' baby name choice raised a few eyebrows at the time and they later revealed that they conceived their son whilst in Brooklyn, USA! "I like Brooklyn as a name - it's quite different - but you couldn't do it all the time. It wouldn't work if you were somewhere like Moscow," Victoria said at the time.
After Brooklyn's birth, Victoria lost a lot of weight, which drew criticism. "After Brooklyn was born I lost a lot of weight. From being Podgy Spice pre-Brooklyn I had become Skeletal Spice. What upset me was that I ate like any normal person, but I lost weight," Victoria said at the time.
Four months after the arrival of Brooklyn in 1999, Victoria and David wed in a lavish ceremony at the Luttrellstown Castle. The wedding ceremony saw them sitting on golden thrones and set Posh and Becks back an alleged £500,000.
In 2001, Victoria announced that she was pregnant with her second baby - and it wad Brooklyn who they first told the happy news to. "I told him I was pregnant, then I sent him over to David to tell him the secret. I was in tears as he toddled over to his daddy and said, 'Mummy is going to have a baby.' I hoped it would make him feel he is involved with the new baby," Victoria recalled at the time.
The guessing game began after Victoria's pregnancy announcement, with everyone wondering where they'd conceived their baby and whether they'd use it as their next baby name choice! It was also revealed that Posh craved smoked salmon during her second pregnancy.
Although Posh wasn't very vocal to the press during her second pregnancy, she did reveal that she, "Loved being pregnant and I like giving birth - oh, I love it." However, David cheekily interrupted, telling her: "You had a Caesarean. You didn't even feel it."
Victoria gave birth to her second baby, another boy, who they named Romeo. They didn't say the reasons behind the name choice, but David did reveal, "Romeo has Brooklyn's nose and Victoria's chin," when he spoke to the press outside the Portland Hospital, London, where Romeo was born. Romeo weighed 7lb 4oz and was born via caesarean by doctors orders.
The Beckham family moved to Spain in 2003 when David was transferred from Manchester United to Real Madrid, and in 2004, just after David was hit with claims that he had an affair with his personal assistant, Victoria and David announced that they were going to have a third baby.
The pregnancy was very low key and Posh hid her baby bump and rarely spoke about her pregnancy. Victoria gave birth to another boy in February, 2005, and they named their third son Cruz. Born in the Ruber Internacional hospital in Madrid, the couple opted for a Spanish name which means 'Cross'. However, Cruz is traditionally a girls name in Spain...
All three of David and Victoria's boys have their own personalities, and the older they get, the stronger the resemblance of their famous parents become.
The eldest Beckham boy, Brooklyn, is quite shy and seems quite protective of his mum when out and about. He's an avid football fan and owns a top of the range iPhone, despite only just hitting double figures in age. Brooklyn was recently given the 'birds and the bees' talk by mum Victoria, as dad David was too embarassed! It's also rumoured that he has a crush on actress Kate Beckinsale's 10-year-old daughter Lily, who is close friends with Victoria.
The middle Beckham boy Romeo has definitely inherited his dad's model looks and his mum's pout! Although his parents let his hair grow really long when he was a baby up until he was a toddler, his floppy locks and dapper sense of style gives Suri Cruise a run for her money after he recently made it onto the Best Dressed Man list - he's only 8! The mini fashionista also loves a good (childrens) party and throws a star-studded bash every year - well, his parents do!
The youngest son of David and Victoria Beckham is Cruz. This cheeky chap is regularly seen in his dressing up garb - from Wolverine, an astronaut to a Transformer - all while pulling a goofy smile for the paparazzi!
"We're all learning sign language because one of our friends is deaf. So, of course, the first thing Cruz, who is 5, wanted to learn was how to say, 'I have gas,' and the 's' word. He also wanted to know what other swear words were," Victoria said recently about her cheeky Cruz.
It looks like Cruz might have inherited his former pop star mum's music and dancing talent. During the last Spice Girls tour in 2009, Cruz took to the stage and broke into an impressive body-popping, break dance - much to the delight of the crowd.
After much speculation of a fourth pregnancy, what with Victoria admitting she was broody and her allegedly exhausting David with her baby making plans, on January 9, 2011, David confirmed Victoria was pregnant with their fourth baby. Apparently, it caused David to shed many tears of happiness.
Gossip abounded as to whether the couple would get their much-wanted baby girl. Posh and Becks never shied away from talk that they'd like a little Beckham girl and were delighted when they found out they were indeed expecting a girl.
Like her other pregnancies, the guessing game on what the Beckhams' would call their fourth baby was in full swing. It's a relief to know David and Victoria didn't listen to their son's suggestion - Justine Beiber!
Rumour had it that Victoria had her eye on her dream buggy - an iCandy Apple - and was designing her house ready for the arrival. She also had a pink themed baby shower thrown for her by her A-list actress friend, Eva Longoria.
Victoria gave birth to her first daughter, Harper Seven, on July 10, 2011. The choice of baby name reportedly boosted book sales!
The Beckhams currently reside in Los Angeles, but rumour has it the clan may soon returning to their ‘Beckingham Palace’ in Hertfordshire, UK.
