Washington, Feb 6 (ANI): David and Victoria Beckham are hoping to adopt a baby girl from Africa, say reports.

The couple, who are already parents to three sons, allegedly told friends about their wish to adopt a child after the footballers recent visit to poverty-stricken Sierra Leone.

According to Grazia magazine, David came close to tears as he witnessed the plight of African orphans during his four-day trip as United Nations Childrens Fund goodwill ambassador.

During the trip the former England captain helped immunise babies and witnessed a birth.

“I was close to tears. I had to step back and take a deep breath. I’m a very emotional person and I’m even more emotional now I’m a parent,” he said upon his return, Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

The sources have also revealed that the Beckhams have sought advice from friend Tom Cruise, who adopted a son and daughter with ex-wife Nicole Kidman.

A representative for the Beckhams responded: “They both have said that they admire people who go through the adoption process, their focus is raising their own three boys.” (ANI)
