David Beckham - David Beckham's nephew for second operation

David Beckham's nephew is undergoing a second life-saving operation.

The retired soccer star is praying his 11-week-old nephew, Jenson James, who has been in intensive care suffering from severe respiratory problems, will pull through after a stomach operation, following an emergency tracheotomy, where a tube was inserted into his throat.

Jenson's dad, Kevin Briggs, 41, told The Sun newspaper: ''David calls every day and has been amazing. His mum Sandra is also a godsend. We're praying for Jenson.''

Jenson is the son of David's sister Lynne and hasn't been home since he was born on December 30, having been moved to London's Great Ormond Street Hospital from Queen's Hospital in Romford, Essex.

He has suffered with breathing difficulties and doctors think he could also have gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), a common condition where stomach acid leaks out of the stomach and into the oesophagus, meaning he struggles to keep food down.

It was previously revealed David - who has four children, Brooklyn,14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old daughter Harper with wife Victoria - was delighted to become an uncle for the fifth time but has been seriously concerned about Jenson's health.

He has been in ''constant contact'' with his sister and her partner Kevin since his nephew was born.
