(CNN) -- Soccer star David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, are expecting their fourth child this summer.
"Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are very excited about the arrival of their new brother or sister," Victoria Beckham's rep Jeff Raymond said Sunday, referring to the other three Beckham children -- all boys.
When David Beckham made the announcement on his Facebook page Sunday, it prompted a flurry of response from fans hoping that the fourth child will be a daughter.
The Beckhams married in 1999. Their children are 11, 8 and 5.
