If Kate Middleton and Prince William are having trouble coming up with the perfect royal baby name, then they're in luck -- a celebrity has offered a moniker suggestion for their consideration. And no, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian aren't begging the Duchess of Cambridge to choose a strange directional name like South or East. Instead it's soccer superstar David Beckham who is playing the name game.
During an interview with Sky News, Becks was asked about his best baby name idea. "David's pretty good. I think they should go for David -- if it's a boy," he said. Will and Kate might not take advantage of David's suggestion, but bookmakers have revealed that his wife's name is actually a popular pick. Perhaps this is because Queen Victoria's 63-year rule over Great Britain was the longest of any female monarch in history.
Since David and Victoria Beckham were lucky enough to score invites to the royal wedding, they'll probably feel obligated to purchase a pretty amazing gift for the royal baby. They could go with something unique like a pair of designer booties that look like soccer cleats or a golden rattle with a jewel-encrusted soccer ball on the end. A blinged-out gift like this might seem like a bit much, but the royal tot is already being lavished with lots of expensive presents.
U.S. baby boutique Bel Bambini sent the royal couple a $2,300 gift basket containing a $978 Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller and $275 Dior baby booties to help the royal child travel in style. So if Becks and Victoria want to impress the royal couple, they can't just spend a lot of money on similar gifts -- they need to get creative like British jeweler Theo Fennell. He was commissioned by a company called Sudocrem to create a way to make treating diaper rash stylish: a $15,000 charm bracelet that holds diaper rash cream. However, the bracelet isn't going to be given to Kate Middleton -- instead it's being auctioned off to raise money for the Duchess of Cambridge's favorite charity.
The diaper rash bracelet auction isn't the only unique gift that the royal baby has received. PETA sent the tot a gift basket containing vegan caviar, a faux sheepskin blanket, and faux gras. Faux gras is the vegan version of the French delicacy foie gras, which is made from the fattened livers of force-fed geese and ducks. When the royal couple runs out of free animal-friendly food, they've got another present that will help them stock up on supplies -- their local supermarket Asda has provided them with a VIP parking space near the front of the store. The reserved spot even comes with its own "royal guard."
So do you think the world has gone a little too royal baby crazy, or are you just as excited about the child's highly anticipated arrival?
