Victoria and David Beckham have announced that they will donate their newborn daughter Harper Seven’s baby gifts to charity.
The couple welcomed their fourth child on July 10, their first daughter after three boys. Since Harper Seven’s birth, the Beckham family have received several free gifts from companies hoping that the couple will promote their products. However, very few of these gifts will be kept by the Beckhams, if any at all. After so many children and with the couple’s combined wealth, they presumably don’t need free gift and don’t want to be tied to promotional deals.
Some items were returned immediately and some have been boxed up and given to charity, said a source close to the family, in an interview with the British newspaper ‘The Mail On Sunday.’
“There are going to be some very lucky families in Los Angeles over the next few weeks who have no idea they are using gifts intended for the Beckhams,” the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson confirmed that Victoria and David Beckham discourage companies from sending gifts. However, they receive a lot of unsolicited goods which are not kept by the family but are passed on to deserving charities.”
Last week, Victoria released the first picture of Harper Seven, in the arms of her father, David Beckham.
In mid-July, David explained the meaning behind Harper Seven’s name via Facebook. Seven is viewed as a lucky number, and was also David Beckham’s shirt number at Manchester United and England. She was also born around 7am in the seventh month. And Harper? That just had a ‘lovely sound,’ apparently.
