The Daily Mail is quoting David Beckham on their new baby girl's name thus 'One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. It's a very strong, passionate book. That's where Harper came from.'
And yet, back in 2005 the Guardian disclosed this comment from Victoria '"I haven't read a book in my life," Beckham confesses. "I don't have the time." However, the 31-year-old former Spice Girl does shrug off suggestions that she is a philistine. "I prefer listening to music, although I do love fashion magazines."'
So when did she discover reading? Perhaps the stork has the inside story on that one.
