The Queen Keeps Up With Posh Pregnancy News

The Queen keeps up with Posh pregnancy news PA

It seems that just like the rest of the country, the QUEEN is also obsessed with the impending arrival of the Beckham's fourth child.

In an interview on US TV, David Beckham revealed that Her Maj quizzed him about Posh's pregnancy at the state banquet for Barack Obama last week.

David said: 'Funnily enough she knew I was having a baby in six weeks. It shocked me that she knew. I love the Queen.

Hmmmm. Shocked, David? C'mon, was it not just a tiny bit obv that Mrs B was with child when you bumped into Liz at that wedding a few weeks ago? Although admittedly, it's not like you've had major column inches devoted to the pregnancy in the papers is it... oh, hang on...

The Queen and new babies aside, Becks also 'fessed up that his mother hates his tattoos - his flesh is currently canvas to 31 pieces of body art - but said that he WOULD let his boys - Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo get inked - but only when they reached a 'certain age.' As for his daughter though...

'I'm not sure I would let her get tattoos but the boys I couldn't really argue with," he explained. 'I love them personally, but I'm not sure they're going to look great when I'm 75.'

Oooh, sexist!
