Beckhams To Adopt African Orphan?


It's been a busy week for rumours regarding the Beckham family. Hot on the heels of the affair David Beckham never had with opera singer Katherine Jenkins, comes the latest story doing the rounds - that the couple are planning to adopt a baby from Sierra Leone.

An Australian magazine Woman's Day claimed that David and Victoria - who already have four children of their own, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and one-uear-old Harper - were set to further extend their brood by adopting an African orphan in a move they had been considering for three years.

Their spokesperson rubbished the publication's claims, and said that the family had no intention of taking on another child - despite having 'huge respect' for those who do choose to adopt:

"David and Victoria have huge respect for people that choose to adopt but this is untrue," their representative said, "They continue to focus on raising their own four children."

David's spokesman also issued a statement in the last few days dismissing claims on Twitter that he was embroiled in an affair with opera singer Katherine Jenkins - saying it was 'nonsense'.

Ah, nonsense, or rubbish, or totally made up - it's still a bit exciting to read about all these celeb rumours, isn't it?
