Victoria Beckham's sons are hoping for another brother.

The former Spice Girls star-turned-fashion designer - who has three children, Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and five-year-old Cruz with soccer star husband David Beckham - is currently pregnant with her fourth child but claims she has no idea what gender the new arrival is, but the boys are hoping for another male playmate.

She told the USA Today newspaper: "I can go on the record and say, contrary to rumours, I do not know the sex of my baby. We feel so lucky and so blessed.

"We know what to do with a boy. The kids are excited about having a Little Brother to teach how to play soccer ... But, if it's a girl, we'd be over the moon as well."

Though Victoria has admitted carrying another child is leaving her "tired", friends of the 36-year-old star recently revealed her pregnancy is going more smoothly than her previous ones.

A pal said: "She's not having morning sickness like she has done before."

The friend also revealed Victoria is craving marmalade and English breakfast tea.

A source said: "Victoria is having a lot of tea and toast with lashings of marmalade. She can't get enough of the stuff.

"Mostly she's been having it on toast, accompanied by lots of cups of tea."
