David Beckham announced today at a Los Angeles Galaxy press event that he and wife Victoria Beckham are expecting a baby girl in July. This baby will be the celebrity couple's fourth child and their very first daughter!

Sounded like the couple was very invested in having a girl -- Victoria even hinted that she might go for a fifth child to get her girl -- so this is great news for them! I mean, now they really have it all, right?

There was already much gossipy speculation about this baby's girlness swirling about, but David's announcement made it official. After his announcement, David Beckham said:

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.

I totally get where he's coming from with that. I remember feeling a bit of relief upon hearing I'd be having a second boy. There's something comforting in knowing you're already a pro in some aspects. I knew I had a pile of boy clothes we could use again and that I could proficiently deflect a baby boy peeing disaster in seconds flat.

David says his three boys are excited and that Victoria's pregnancy is going well. I can't wait to see this girl's clothes. Look out, Suri Cruise. Here comes Baby Girl Beckham. And what about the girl name? They already have Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, and we know sibling names have to match. So maybe London, Juliet, or Penelope?

Are you holding out hope specifically for a girl or a boy now or in the future?
