Special thanks to Yehudit Levy for sending this my way…
David and Victoria Beckham were overjoyed by the birth last week of their fourth child, a baby girl they named Harper. “We all feel so blessed and the boys love their baby sister so much!!!” the former Spice Girl exulted to her vast following on Twitter. A few days later she posted a picture of her husband cradling his new daughter, with the tender comment: “Daddy’s little girl!”

What heart wouldn’t be warmed by the Beckhams’ delight in their newborn?

The Observer’s wouldn’t.

  1. I like the line “That’s why the birth of virtually any baby is cause to rejoice, and why parents who decide to raise another child bestow a gift on all of us.” That’s a REALLY nice way to look at it:)

Sometimes the lines are so blurred and we are so easily confused but in this case, for me, the truth is so clear regarding the advantages of “populating the world”, in our language: being fruitful and multiplying (love biblical language 🙂 ) My favorite part: comparing the world economy to a birthday party….

  3. I think the Beckmans are making a very positive statement. on one hand they are a very materialistic oriented family..always in the limelight, and she is always looking anorexic but stylish to the max even though she rarely smiles; however, in spite of their values, somewhere they have some of those values in order…4 kids, and maybe more in the future…they are giving a positive message admist the Gucci, Prada and soccer…good for them
