Did Beckhams Name Baby Harper After “Wizards of Waverly Place” Character?

Truth rating: 0

“Is Harper Seven Beckham named after Selena Gomez‘s show, ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’?” asks HollywoodLife, in another futile attempt to link random celebrities instead of doing actual reporting.

According to the silly site, sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz “tried to convince David and Victoria to name the Beckham baby girl after their favorite TV show,” and “it worked!”

“Harper is the name of Jennifer Stone‘s character on the popular Disney series ‘Wizards of Waverly Place,'” explains the blog.

David supposedly “was a huge fan of Bieber’s girlfriend Selena Gomez’s hit show too,” so he immediately took to the moniker.

So, did the couple really name their child after a TV show?

Absolutely NOT.

A source close to Victoria tells Gossip Cop that Harper is “an old English name that she’s always liked,” and it has NOTHING to do with “Wizards of Waverly Place,” which is NOT the boys’ “favorite TV show.”

Once again, HollywoodLife blurs fiction and reality.
