So I’m sure you’ve heard. Because, seriously, it was broadcast around the world like relief for a natural disaster, as if it could possibly be that monumental: David Beckham confirmed the other day that he and Victoria are expecting a baby girl.

"Obviously, we're very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I'm going to say it: It's a little girl. We're still in shock. Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon."

Let the naming games begin!

If you’ve been reading my blog for years, you’ve read for years that my prediction has always been LaLa Beckham. Because of course of their penchant for naming their children geographically by conception. So my first choice, since I obviously have a say in the matter, is always, always LaLa. But I thought, you know, it might be fun to consider some alternatives. Here’s what I came up with:

Beverly Beckham
– nothing like christening your child after your rich ass neighbourhood

Cali Beckham
– or various permutations (Caleigh, Callie, Calley)

Bel Beckham – Bel Air is close enough to Beverly Hills. The new Fresh Princess.

Malibu Beckham
– because, um, this would be AWESOME

America Beckham
– kinda like a f-ck you to the British tabloids?

Angelina Beckham
– Please. Posh might actually considering gaining 5 lbs if she could be friends with the Jolie.

Holly Beckham – Hollywood Beckham totally sounds like a Coronation Street stripper.

Star Beckham
– I mean if anyone is going to call their kid “Star”, it’s them

Thoughts and favourites?

Here’s Victoria arriving back in LA after a few days doing business in London.
