Speculation is mounting that Victoria Beckham is expecting her long-wished for daughter.
Reports today claim that the pregnant star is ‘over the moon’ after discovering the happy news during a 16-week scan.
A representative for the 36-year-old declined to comment on the reports today.
But according to the Sun, Victoria had a 4D scan at the private Rivers Hospital in Sawbridgeworth, Herts, where doctors were able to confirm the gender of the baby.
Typically, a baby’s sex can only be determined at 20 weeks with a regular ultrasound scan.
Victoria and David, 35, announced in January that they were expecting their fourth child in the summer.
Victoria has often spoken over the years about her desire to add a girl to her male-dominant brood.
She said in one interview that should could imagine ‘painting her nails, putting on make-up, and choosing clothes’ with her.
Last year, she said: ‘Everyone keeps asking me if I would like to have a little girl and I think, at some point, if I am lucky enough to have another baby, that would be great. If I am blessed enough.’
But in recent months she has been more circumspect – even telling the forthcoming issue of Vogue in which she is cover star: ‘Maybe one day another baby, but at this stage I think the chances of a girl are quite slim.’
