If genes indicate talent, the tot will either excel on the soccer pitch or cause audible trauma on the stage. Either way, Britain’s “it” couple couldn’t be happier.

“I’ve got some great news to tell you all,” David said on his Facebook page. “Victoria and I are expecting our fourth child this summer. The boys are very excited about the arrival of a new brother or sister.”

(Read what Victoria Beckham had to say when she joined Twitter.)

The celebrity couple flew back to England on January 8 to break the news to friends and family at their $28 million mansion in rural Hertfordshire.

The Telegraph reports that the fashion designer formally known as Posh Spice is more than three months pregnant. That means she likely conceived the child a few weeks after David began legal proceedings against celebrity mag In Touch, which published allegations that he slept with a woman who bills herself as “the world’s most sought-after call girl.”

A lover of children, Posh has donated hundreds of wheelchairs to disabled children and raised more than $1 million for children’s causes through the Victoria and David Beckham Children’s Charity. Word has it she’d like a baby girl this time.
