David Beckham has hinted that he and wife Victoria Beckham are trying for another baby.

The couple, who have three sons, are long rumoured to have wanted another child, ideally a baby girl, and were said to be trying to get pregnant when they first moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2007. Shortly afterwards, Victoria revealed they’d put aside their baby plans to concentrate on their boys and to allow her to launch her fashion career.

Now though, David has told The People newspaper: “I really want more kids and I hope it happens soon.

“I want a little girl. That would be amazing.”

David is currently on loan from LA Galaxy to AC Milan and as well as playing football, launched a new Armani underwear ad campaign in London this week.
