    Default David Beckham and Victoria Beckham 'adopting a baby girl from Africa'

    David and Victoria Beckham are hoping to adopt a little girl after the footballer's visit to Sierra Leone, it has been reported.
    According to Grazia magazine, the couple were moved by the plight of African orphans following the footballer's recent charity trip to Sierra Leone

    David spent four days in Sierra Leone in his role as a Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations' children's charity UNICEF two weeks ago.

    During his trip, David witnessed a birth and gave immunisation drops to a newborn baby.
    Upon his return to his adopted home of LA, the footballer said: "I was close to tears. I had to step back and take a deep breath.

    "But what stopped me crying was knowing that what these kids are going through is far worse than my feelings."
    Beckham, according to Grazia, has told friends they are seriously considering adopting following his trip and has sought advice from celebrity pal Tom Cruise, who adopted son Connor and daughter Isabella with ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
    The publication quoted a friend as saying: "Adoption is something David has been talking about for some time.
    "If there is one subject that can move him to tears, it's the thought of being unloved, uncared for and with no hope or future.
    "It was only when David started planning his trip to Sierra Leone that they began talking about adoption again. It's clear they both think adoption is great.
    "Tom has talked to David about how adoption changed him and how he's been able to change the lives of two amazing children."
    Spice Girl Victoria has often spoken of her wish for a girl and admitted she is saving her hundreds of expensive handbags for her future daughter.
    She said: "I think of them (bags) as an investment. Someday, when I'm lucky enough to have a girl, I will pass them along to her.
    "It would finish the family off to have a little girl."
    The couple originally planned to try for a fourth child last year, but Victoria's Spice Girls reunion and fashion duties meant they were too busy. A spokeswoman for the Beckhams said: "They both publicly have said that while they admire people who go through the adoption process, their focus is raising their own three boys."

    You can adopt me and give me all of your handbags, Posh! Yeah, so I'm an adult, but I can act like a child, if you want me to.

    I absolutely would have thought that they would be too vain to adopt... like they would want their kids to be of their own high-breeding or something... maybe I'm wrong.

    I just can't see them adopting... it's like it's too passe now for Victoria to consider it.

    All I'm seeing is David wants to adopt. I doubt Posh is up for it. And if the best she can offer a little girl is her handbags, well... good luck with that....

    But isn't she pregnant? They need to think this through...adopting while pregnant...jeebus.

    Oh, and I may be a Beckham fan, but he looks uber stupid in that hat.

    Default David and Victoria Beckham to Adopt from Africa?

    David and Victoria Beckham are planning on adopting a young girl from Africa, it has been claimed.

    Grazia magazine has reported that the couple were drawn to the idea after David's recent trip to Sierra Leone.

    The LA Galaxy star spent four days in the country as part of his role as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations.

    During the trip the former England captain helped immunise babies and witnessed a birth.

    "I was close to tears. I had to step back and take a deep breath. I'm a very emotional person and I'm even more emotional now I'm a parent," he said upon his return.

    According to the magazine the Beckhams have sought advice from showbiz friend Tom Cruise, who adopted a son and daughter with ex-wife Nicole Kidman.

    Grazia quotes a friend of the couple as saying they had been considering the idea for a while.

    A representative for the Beckhams responded: "They both have said that they admire people who go through the adoption process, their focus is raising their own three boys."

    David Beckham recently missed out the chance to gain his 100th England cap, after not being picked in Fabio Capello's squad.

    I bet she'd love a kid from Africa. The girl would be the same weight and Posh would ask for diet tips. "OMG you are sooooo skinny!!!"

    He is a beautiful piece of manflesh but that hat wouldn't even fashionable in Wisconsin during a blizzard.

    This just seems like too much of a bandwagon thing to me.

    Yes, they seemed to have jumped right on that bandwagon

    Of course, this is the latest accessory, and we know how these two vacuous assholes need to be in style
