ROYAL BABY NAME FRENZY. Football star David Beckham joins in on the fun

MANILA, Philippines – Not even British football star David Beckham is spared from the royal baby frenzy keeping the world on tenterhooks.

In an interview with British news network Sky News featured in The Hollywood Reporter (THR), Beckham even suggested a name for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s firstborn.

“David’s not bad. I think they should go for David,” he joked.

Beckham is optimistic that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “going to be amazing parents, because they are so loving toward children.”

About the royal dad-to-be, he told Sky News, “William has been in all of our lives for so many years. We have seen William grow from that young boy into an unbelievable gentleman. That’s an amazing quality. And that as a father is so important.”

The 38-year-old athlete and his wife Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham are parents to 4 children, all with unconventional names. Their 3 sons are named Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David. Their daughter is called Harper Seven.

The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth to the baby in mid-July.
