Beckham with sister LynneDavid Beckham's sister is also expecting a fourth baby, it has been announced. Lynne, 38, is said to be 'delighted' at the news, despite the fact her new baby will be leading a very different life to that of its cousins.

While the Beckham's flit between their luxury homes in LA and the UK, hard-up Lynne lives on benefits in a £250,000 house in Romford, Essex - bought for her by David.

Lynne is currently divorcing Colin Every, the father of her other three children after 10 years of marriage. She met her new partner, Kevin Briggs, on Facebook in 2010. He has just been released from prison for subjecting an ex-girlfriend to abuse. He has 18 previous convictions for other offences.

Relations between Lynne and her famous brother are said to be strained over his disapproval of her former husband, Every. Victoria refused to attend their wedding in 1999.

Last year, it was revealed Lynne was claiming £164 a week in benefits. David was said to be 'baffled and upset' at reports of her hard-up lifestyle, as he had always provided for her.
