David Beckham Reveals The REAL Reasons Behind The Name Harper Seven

Proud daddy David Beckham has spoken up about the choice of name for his new baby girl

David Beckham explains that the author's name of Victoria's favourite book To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee, played a part in the choice of first name for his daughter Harper Seven. 

The football ace also revealed that his former Manchester United and England shirt number 7 had been involved in the choice of his daughter's middle name but that it wasn't the only reason.

David explained all in videos on his official Facebook page in which he also revealed his joy following the birth of his daughter.

The star said: "A lot of thought goes into our children's names and Harper was a name that we've loved for a long time for a couple of reasons.

"One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. It's a very strong passionate book. That's where Harper came from."

When speaking about the reasoning behind Seven, David said: "And then Seven you know, a lot of people have assumed its just because of my shirt number that I wore for many years and part of it is because I had so much luck around wearing that number, wearing it for England, wearing it for Manchester United.

"It was such an influential number throughout my career and a lucky number...but that wasn't the main reason. The other reasons behind Seven was because it symbolises spiritual perfection, the Seven Wonders Of the World, seven colours of the rainbow and in many cultures around the world it's regarded as a lucky number."

The star also went on to talk about being a father for the fourth time, gushing: "So we love the name, we love Harper Seven. We're very proud of having her in our lives and in our family and it's an amazing time for our family right now."
