The superstar couple announce that a baby brother or sister is on the way for Brooklyn...

SPICE GIRL VICTORIA BECKHAM and her MANCHESTER UNITED footballing star husband DAVID BECKHAM are expecting their second child in September, it has been announced.

A statement just released by the pair reads: “Brooklyn is also really looking forward to having a little brother or sister to play with.”

It continued: “This year has been such an exciting year for us – England are in the World Cup finals, Victoria’s had a second Top Ten hit and now we are expecting a new baby. It’s fantastic.”

A spokesperson for Posh said that despite the news, the singer would push ahead with her stuttering solo career. “It is wonderful news and we are very pleased for them. Victoria will be continuing with her work and we are currently planning the promotion of her third single,” he said.

Beckham releases her next single, ‘I Wish’, in early May.

Their son Brooklyn was born in March 1999. His name is taken from the New York district in which he was conceived. The couple currently live in Alderley Edge, Cheshire.
