Cupid's Pulse Article: David and Victoria Beckham Are Expecting a GirlCupid's Pulse Article: David and Victoria Beckham Are Expecting a Girl

Mozel tov; it’s a girl!  According to People,  David and Victoria Beckham announced Friday that their fourth child will be female.  “We’re still in shock. Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon,” David said. “Our three boys are happy and excited, and Victoria is doing well.”  Fashion designer and former Spice Girl Victoria said that they know handle boys, but are still happy to have a girl in the family.

How do you break the news of a baby to your other kids?

Cupid’s Advice:

1. Have a game plan: It’s best to plan in advance what you will tell your kids when it’s time to break the news. Let them know that things will change drastically when their new sibling arrives.  Also, be prepared to answer the tough questions they’ll ask such as, “Where do babies come from?”

2. Be honest: Lying to your kids is just wrong, especially in this scenario. It’s best to let them deal with it for as long as possible before the big day arrives.

3. Tell them you’ll still love them: What’s most important is to tell your children that you will love them just as much as before even though they won’t be the only one in the spotlight anymore.
