David and Victoria Beckham have announced they are expecting their fourth child this summer.
Jo Milloy, spokeswoman for Victoria, did not give a specific date or any further information about the pregnancy.
The superstar couple have three boys: Brooklyn, who is 11 years of age, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five.
They are said to be "very excited" at the idea of a new brother or sister.
The family is based in Los Angeles, where David plays for the Galaxy in the MLS, but his contract is due to expire in November and they are thought to be considering a return to the UK.
Victoria, who launches a dress collection at London fashion week next month, reportedly wants to return to their 'Beckingham Palace' mansion in Hertfordshire.
The former England captain has just seen a potential loan move to Tottenham in the MLS off-season fall through, but he will train with Spurs.
David met Victoria at a Manchester United game in 1997 and they were married two years later.
