David Beckham is no stranger to the Royal family and said that Prince William and Kate will be "amazing" parents. He also had a suggestion for the new baby's name, "David."
"They're going to be amazing parents, because they're so loving towards children," Beckham told Sky News. "You see the way they are. You know, obviously I've seen more of William than I have of Kate, but William has been in all of our lives for so many years and we've seen him grow from that young boy into an unbelievable gentleman. And I think that's an amazing quality that he shows, and that as a father is so important."
While the rest of the world waits for any news on the Prince or Princess of Cambridge, including his or her name, Beckham has a suggestion for a baby name.
"David's very good. David's not bad. I think they should go for David, if it's a boy," Beckham joked.
Kate was reported to be due this past Saturday, but the day came and went without any excitement. William went ahead with his plans and played in a charity polo match. Kate has been nesting with her parents and family, waiting for the baby to be born.
"He's very excited and very happy to have the chance to be a dad," friend Danielle Alexandra told Us Weekly. "He's anticipating it with tremendous excitement. He's one of the most loving people you will ever meet, so he's the perfect guy to be a dad."
"I am so excited for him – he's glowing," Alexandra added. "He's glowing about this wonderful time in his life, and I think we should all be glowing with him. He's one of the nicest people you will ever meet."
Now that the original, or alleged, due date has passed, everyone is wondering just when the newest Royal will be born. One thing is certain, Kate is due sometime this month.
