And Victoria Beckham is said to have booked the date of her Caesarean section for the 4th July – U.S. Independence Day, according to reports.

A spokesperson for Mrs Beckham told MailOnline: “It is no secret that Victoria will be having her baby in the U.S. – we will not be confirming the date although early July is correct.
“David and Victoria have a shortlist of names and once they have met their daughter then they will decide – Atlanta is not on that shortlist!”
Mrs Beckham is said to have preliminarily booked her C-section at a London hospital, but instead opted for Los Angeles as the place of birth.
The Sun has reported that the 37-year-old will have her baby in LA and has hired a house near their home for relatives to stay in.
