Team Beckham can soon expect another player.
The former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham and her husband David are expecting a child later this year, said Jo Milloy, a spokeswoman for Victoria Beckham.
Milloy gave few other details Sunday, but it would be baby No4 for the Beckhams, whose celebrity is well-entrenched on both sides of the Atlantic.
Clearly, the couple are back together after several allegations of infidelity on David's part last year.
David Beckham, a former England captain, played for Manchester United and Real Madrid before moving his sporting career to California when he signed up with the Los Angeles Galaxy. The 35-year-old is a major figure in English soccer, and is still hopeful of being recalled to the England team by Fabio Capello despite having been dropped from the squad last August.
Victoria Beckham, 36, found fame as a singer for 1990s' girl band the Spice Girls and has since become a fixture of the fashion circuit.
The pair have parlayed their fame into lucrative sponsorship deals, clothing lines, and — for Victoria Beckham — a guest spot on "American Idol."
The couple already have three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. The couple are thought to be hoping for a girl, but there was no word of whether the latest addition to the Beckham brood would be a boy or a girl.
"I think one day, if we're blessed to have more children, it would be amazing," Victoria, 36, told People.com when asked about additional kids with her soccer star husband. "It's a lot having three boys ... But who knows, one day?"
That day is now here.
