David Beckham suggests royal baby name

David Beckham hopes Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge name their new arrival after him.

Britain's Prince William and his wife Catherine are due to become first-time parents any day now, with the world eagerly anticipating the child's arrival.

Soccer star David is friends with the couple and jokingly suggested his own name as a possibility for their new family addition.

“David’s pretty good. David’s not bad. I think they should go for David. If a boy," he laughed in an interview with Sky News.

David - who raises four children with wife Victoria - believes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make fine parents.

The hunk has every faith in them and the support system around them.

“I don’t think they need my advice. They’ve got so many amazing mentors and parents around them, and grandparents. They’ll learn from them," he gushed.

“I think William and Kate, they’re going to be amazing parents because they’re so loving towards children. You see the way they are. Obviously I’ve seen more of William than I have of Kate, but I think William has been in all of our lives for so many years and we’ve seen him grow from that young boy into an unbelievable gentleman.

“That’s an amazing quality that he shows and I think that as a father is so important.”

David and Victoria have sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz and daughter Harper together. Newly-retired sports star David hopes one of his kids will follow in his soccer-playing footsteps.

“Of course, you know I’d love one of them to be a [soccer] player. It might end up being Harper. She might go into it. I mean — we shouldn’t show Victoria this — but I think if the boys go on to play [soccer] then great," he smiled.

"I just want them to be happy, I want them to be healthy, and I want them to be fit, simple as that.”
