David Beckham has planned a romantic weekend in Paris for Victoria's birthday.

The fashion designer celebrated turning 39 with her children - Brooklyn,14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, eight, and 20-month-old Harper - in London yesterday (17.04.13), while her soccer star husband continued training for French team Paris Saint Germain.

However, in a bid to make up for missed time, David has organised flights for their entire family - including in-laws - to go out to the French capital, where he can finally spend some alone time with his wife.

A source told The Mirror newspaper: ''David was on duty with his club Paris St Germain so couldn't be with Victoria yesterday, the day of her actual 39th.

''Obviously, they spoke lots and he'd arranged a series of small gifts, including flowers, to be with her on the day, courtesy of the kids.

''But his main present is flights for the whole family, including the grandparents, to join him in the French capital.

''He and Victoria have hardly spent any time together of late and so David's saying he's going to spoil her rotten and make up for lost time.''

Part of the reason why David, 37, invited their extended family is to have babysitters for their kids while he whisks Victoria away for a romantic night together.

The source added: ''The grandparents are on babysitting duty, meaning David has a whole day and night alone with wife.

''He's booked a five-star hotel and will pull out all the stops.''

Victoria's former Spice Girls bandmates - Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton - all contacted their friend on her special day and the mother-of-four thanked followers on her Twitter for their birthday wishes.

She posted: ''Thank you for all your messages! Having a special day with my boys and Harper x vb

''So much fun on my birthday!! Thank u so much!!!! X vb (sic)''
