LONDON (AP) _ Soccer star David Beckham's wife, Victoria _ formerly known as ``Posh Spice'' _ gave birth Sunday to the couple's third son, named Cruz.

Victoria Beckham, 30, and the baby are in ``perfect health,'' said Dr. Vidal Pelaez, head of the obstetrics and gynecology department at the Hospital Ruber Internacional, where she gave birth to the 7-pound boy by planned Caesarean section. Cruz has two brothers: Brooklyn, 5, and Romeo, 2.

The marriage of Britain's No. 1 celebrity couple grabbed headlines in April when a former personal aide, Rebecca Loos, claimed she and David Beckham had had a 10-day affair. He dismissed the claim as ``ludicrous'' and ``absurd.''

In September, lawyers for the couple said they were taking legal action against a British tabloid newspaper over an article which claimed their marriage was in trouble.

Victoria Beckham is a former member of the Spice Girls.
