After three boys, it's about time for a girl in the family.

David Beckham announced that he and his wife Victoria Beckham are expecting a baby girl, reported People.com.

The soccer star announced the big news on Friday at an L.A. Galaxy fan luncheon.

Obviously, we're very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I'm going to say it: It's a little girl, 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. Our three boys are happy and excited, and Victoria is doing well.

Last month, Victoria Beckham insisted that she did not know the sex of her unborn child.

We know what to do with boys, she had said.

The Beckhams have three sons, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo 8 ½ and Cruz 6.
