After 12 years of breeding the future stars of men’s soccer, Victoria and David Beckham finally have a little girl to call their own. Born Sunday at 7:55 a.m., Harper Seven had fans taking to Twitter to insta-congratulate as well as to comment on the bundle’s name. While the team at Harper’s Bazaar was all for the shared moniker, most poked fun at the name. Even British political journalist Yvonne Ridley chimed in, saying, “[It] sounds like a toilet detergent to me.”

We can only imagine what a life little Miss Beckham will grow up to have—with the genes of a superstar athlete and a fashion-designer/pop-star/all-around supermom, the possibilities are endless. Will she fall into her mom’s love of fashion? Take up pop music à la Spice Girls? Perhaps she’ll follow her namesake, To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee, into a writing career. All we can say is: Look out, Suri!

People Magazine: “Irish bookmaking firm of Paddy Power has offered odds of 100:1 on Harper’s following in dad’s footsteps and going out for the England Women’s team. The odds of her becoming a singer in the mode of her former Spice Girl mom are 16:1.” [People Magazine]


Rani Sheen, features director: “With three older brothers to idolize, I’m betting she’ll be a scrappy-cute tomboy. So if she follows her mum’s footsteps and becomes a fashion designer, I could see her doing cool sportswear in the Stella McCartney for Adidas vein.”
