A spokesman for David Beckham says the soccer star's wife Victoria has given birth to a healthy baby girl.

Simon Oliveira says that the couple are "delighted to announce the birth of their daughter," who was delivered Sunday morning at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and weighed in at 7lbs, 10oz.

David was recently seen at the Los Angeles gala dinner on Saturday night hosted by Prince William and his wife Kate.

The Beckhams, who married in 1999 and whose celebrity is entrenched on both sides of the Atlantic, already have three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5.

Oliveira posted the happy news on Twitter Sunday, adding that the Beckhams' three sons "are excited to welcome their baby sister to the family."

The family have yet to announce a name for the little girl, who was born the morning after Beckham scored directly from a corner kick to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Fire, extending his team's Major League Soccer unbeaten streak to 12 matches.

The 36-year-old Beckham captained England's national team from 2000 to 2006. He played for Manchester United and Spain's Real Madrid before moving to L.A. to join the Galaxy in 2007.

Victoria Beckham found fame as a singer for 1990s girl band the Spice Girls and has since become a fixture of the fashion circuit.
