LOS ANGELES - Celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham welcomed a new baby girl into the world on Sunday, adding a daughter to the three sons they already have in their growing family.

A representative for the family said the girl was born "happy and healthy" at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She arrived at 7:55 am on Sunday morning and weighed 3.46 kilograms.

The Beckhams, who married in 1999 and whose celebrity is entrenched on both sides of the Atlantic, already have three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. And they "are excited to welcome their baby sister to the family," added the representative.

The family have yet to announce a name for the little girl, who was born the morning after Beckham scored directly from a corner kick to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Fire, extending his team's Major League Soccer unbeaten streak to 12 matches.

The 36-year-old Beckham captained England's national team from 2000 to 2006. He played for Manchester United and Spain's Real Madrid before moving to L.A. to join the Galaxy in 2007.

Thirty-seven-year-old Victoria Beckham found fame as a singer for 1990s girl band the Spice Girls and has since become a fixture of the fashion circuit.

Just days ago the LA Galaxy star posted a picture of his heavily pregnant wife on Facebook. Beneath the image - which appeared to show his wife sunbathing - Beckham wrote: "Took this pic of Victoria while she wasn't looking. She looks amazing, so close now to the baby being born!"
