LATEST: British soccer icon David Beckham and his wife VICTORIA are allegedly expecting their third child.

According to British newspaper the DAILY MAIL, the singer is in the early stages of pregnancy despite rumours the couple's marriage is floundering following allegations the REAL MADRID star had an affair with his personal assistant REBECCA LOOS.

The Daily Mail asserts that Victoria has been seen visiting the office of her gynaecologist, DR MALCOLM GILLARD.

The couple already have two children, BROOKLYN, five, and ROMEO, one, and Victoria reportedly told her husband that she wanted to try for another baby during the couple's break in Morocco two months ago (JUN04).

But pals are worried the former SPICE GIRL is depending on a new baby to repair her marriage.

One says, "She is going to have to be very careful. Brooklyn and Romeo are the glue that holds the marriage together. Victoria believes that with a new baby - which she hopes will be a girl - they can get their marriage back on track.

"At first David tried to talk her out of it, saying he did not believe that having another baby would solve their problems. But if Victoria wants something, Victoria gets it."
