LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham welcomed a new baby girl into the world on Sunday, adding a daughter to the three sons they already have in their growing family.

A representative for the family said the girl, whose name was not revealed, was born "happy and healthy" at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She arrived at 7:55 a.m. PDT (11:55 EDT) on Sunday morning and weighed 7 lbs 10 oz (3.46 kg).

"Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are excited to welcome their new baby sister to the family," said family representative Jo Milloy. Brooklyn is 12 years old, Romeo 8 and Cruz 6.

David Beckham is the British football superstar who has played on soccer teams in the United States, and Victoria is an equally well-known singing star and fashion designer who was a member of the Spice Girls pop music group.
