David Beckham has just announced his retirement from football and now his commitment to playing the sport has ended it seems he may be ready to focus on family life - and have another baby with wife Victoria. We certainly hope so!

David and Victoria Beckham could be set to welcome a fifth child to their brood.

The superstar couple are already parents to Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, eight, and 22-month-old Harper, but they've never made a secret of the fact they want more.

And following David's announcement that he's retiring from football - just months after he moved to play for Paris St-Germain after leaving LA Galaxy - it looks like Victoria could fall pregnant any day.

A source told Heat magazine: "David and Victoria have made no secret of the fact their children mean everything to them, and that having another child is on the cards.

"Till now, though, they've not been able to make any decisions, as David's future was up in the air.

"They weren't sure if he'd stay on in Paris or go back to LA Galaxy for a final season. Now, they'd love to add to their family."

David and Victoria moved back to London at the beginning of the year when the footballer's time came to an end at LA Galaxy.

After signing with the French team, David spent a lot of his time travelling between London and Paris.

But now he's retired, David can dedicate a lot of his time to his family.

The source continued: "It's been agony for David and Victoria to be separated while he was playing in Paris and she was in London with the kids. They're overjoyed that they can now be in one place together - whether that's London or LA remains to be seen - and look to the future, which they hope includes a baby."

Of course, David will still be busy with his charity, ambassador and modelling work - but he's also keen to dedicate time to being a dad.

Last year he revealed that he and 39-year-old Victoria were keen to have a large family.

David, 38, told Jonathan Ross: "We might have one or two more, you never know.

"We're enjoying the kids as it is. We're busy people and we're enjoying the four kids that we've got already and we're lucky to have four healthy children."

It's not known whether David and Victoria - who's built a strong career as a successful fashion designer - will stay in London or move back to the US.

But, the insider concludes, more babies would be "the icing on the cake".

We'd love to see more Beckham babies!
