Beckham's baby race
09:30 12 October 2006
Victoria Beckham is in a race with former bandmate Geri Halliwell to see who can have another baby first - before their gynaecologist retires.
The two ex-Spice Girls are both patients of top gynaecologist Malcolm Gillard, who is hanging up his gloves in two years time.
Gillard delivered all of Victoria's sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, and Geri's daughter, Bluebell Madonna, and the two women are said to be unhappy at the thought of someone else delivering their next tots.
A friend told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "They won't countenance anyone else delivering their children.
"Malcolm delivered the Beckham boys and Geri's daughter Bluebell. He and his wife have even holidayed in Madrid with Victoria and her husband David."
Victoria, whose sister Louise also had Gillard deliver her children, has made no secret of her desire to have a girl and was reported to be trying to conceive earlier this year.
