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.

"I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham," Beckham posted on his Facebook page. "She weighed a healthy 7 pounds 10 ounces and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA. Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister."

The Beckhams have three sons, Brooklyn is 12 years old, Romeo 8 and Cruz 6.

A representative for the family said the boys' baby sister was born "happy and healthy" at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

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.
