David Beckham - David Beckham's baby nephew seriously ill in hospital

David Beckham's nephew is suffering from breathing difficulties in hospital.

The retired soccer star's eight-day-old nephew, Jenson James, has been in intensive care since birth and is ''fighting for his life''.

David has been in regular touch with his sister, Lynne, and is concerned with how Jenson is doing.

Jenson's dad, Kevin Briggs, told The Sun newspaper: ''When he was born he was fighting for life. We're all very worried but the doctors have been brilliant. David's been in constant contact.''

The hunky sportsman - who spent Christmas in the Maldives with wife Victoria and kids Brooklyn,14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, 8, and two-year-old daughter Harper - has been a great source of support to his sister.

The whole family has pulled together during this difficult time and David's mother, Sandra, has been with Lynne and Kevin, both 41, as they wait to hear what is wrong with the tot.

He has stridor, which is a high-pitched, wheezing sound caused by a disrupted airflow. It is usually caused by a blockage in the larynx or windpipe.

Jenson - Lynne's second child with Kevin - was born at Queen's Hospital in Essex, north-east of London, and is due to be moved to Great Ormond Street Hospital in Central London today for surgery.

Surgeons are hoping the operation will help discover what is blocking the boy's airway.
