Soccer star David Beckham wants another baby with his pop star wife VICTORIA - and this time wants it to be a girl.

The REAL MADRID superstar, 28, who has two young sons with the former SPICE GIRL, wants to expand his beloved family - because his children give him more pleasure than anything else in the world.

He says, "I'd love a little girl, I've got two beautiful sons and would like a girl in the future, but we'll see.

"Children are so special, the things that happen in people's lives, they change their lives forever. To see children happy is one of the best feelings in the world.

"Before I had my two sons I'd always wanted a family, I had always wanted children."

However, Beckham does concede his massive fame makes it impossible to bring up his kids in a normal environment.

He says, "Being followed by three or four cars every time I go out and take my sons to the park, it's impossible. It's hard work, but I don't complain."

Of his plans for the future, once he has retired from football, Beckham says, "I'll spend time with my wife and my children. Hopefully I will have more children by then.

"I would like to have soccer schools around the world so boys and girls can come and enjoy playing football."
