Adoption the option if Beckham baby is male?
Victoria Beckham is desperately hoping that her fourth child will be a girl but bookmakers William Hill believe that another boy will be on the cards.
Punters have been piling into Hills shops to place their pennies on another boy for the Beckham brood and the bookies have slashed the odds on them having a blue baby to 4/6 from 5/6, while the price for a girl has eased to 6/4.
The odds for William to be the name of the baby have shortened from 25/1 to 20/1 as punters have jumped at the chance that Becks' recognises his bromance with Prince William.
Should Victoria give birth to a boy, Hills believe she could well adopt a baby in order to get the girl she so desires. They are 25/1 to have adopted a child by the end of 2011.
"With three boys already, there is a strong opinion from our punters that Posh and Becks will have a fourth. As it stands William has been the best backed name after his budding bromance with new best friend Prince William," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Hills are offering 500/1 that the fourth Beckham wins a senior England cap in football, regardless of sex. The child is also 50/1 to record a UK number 1 single. In keeping with the American theme, Hills are offering 500/1 that the fourth Beckham child plays in NFL.
