Call royal baby David, says Beckham

David Beckham said William and Kate would be 'amazing' parents

David Beckham has given the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge his full support ahead of the birth of their first baby this month.

The football star, who attended the couple's wedding in 2011 with his wife Victoria, said William and Kate will be "amazing" parents.

Beckham, a father of four himself, struck up a friendship with William when the pair joined forces to lobby for London's Olympic bid in 2007.

In an interview with Sky News he said: "They're going to be amazing parents because they are so loving towards children.

"We've seen William grow from that young boy into an unbelievable gentleman. And that as a father is really important."

He even helped out the couple by suggesting a name for the new royal arrival.

"David's pretty good ... if it's a boy of course, " he recommended.

A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
