London: Pregnant Victoria Beckham is ‘over the moon’ after her doctor revealed that a hospital scan indicates she’s expecting a girl.

The singer-turned-fashion designer and her soccer star husband David had been desperate for a daughter to add to their three young sons.

"David and Victoria are over the moon,” a daily quoted a close family friend as saying.

“This will be their last child and to be told they are having a girl is the icing on the cake for the Beckham clan," the friend added.

Victoria, 36, had a scan in January at the private Rivers Hospital near her family home in Sawbridgeworth, Herts, where medics were unable to establish the gender of her child.

But after a 16-week ultrasound scan nearly a fortnight later she was told she was expecting a girl.

Posh then returned for a 4D scan and was told her daughter was healthy and developing perfectly.
