Beckhams 'hoping to adopt' African baby girl
By Nicole Martin Digital and Media Correspondent
David and Victoria Beckham are hoping to adopt a baby girl from Africa, it has been reported.
The couple, who have three sons, allegedly told friends about their wish to adopt a child after the footballer’s recent visit to poverty-stricken Sierra Leone.
According to Grazia magazine, he came close to tears as he witnessed the plight of African orphans during his four-day trip as United Nations Children’s Fund goodwill ambassador.
"I had to step back and take a deep breath," he is reported as saying. "But what stopped me crying was knowing that what these kids are going through is far worse than my feelings."
During his trip, Beckham spent time at a health clinic learning about the most common causes of these deaths, such as malaria, diarrhoea, malnutrition and vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles and TB.
He also joined two health workers as they travelled into a community to vaccinate children unable to attend the clinic.
The magazine quotes a friend of the couple saying that Beckham has been considering adopting for some time.
"If there is one subject that can move him to tears, it’s the thought of being unloved, uncared for and with no hope or future," the friend said.
"It was only when David starting planning his trip to Sierra Leone that they began talking about adoption again. It’s clear they both think adoption is great."
A spokesman for the couple said: "They both publicly have said that while they admire people who go through the adoption process, their focus is raising their own three boys."
