David takes sneaky snap of Victoria's bump

David Beckham takes photo of pregnant Victoria sunbathing as they await the birth of their baby daughter

The footballer posted his Facebook page the serena picture of his wife enjoying a sunny day.

David wrote under the photo "Took this pic of Victoria while she wasn't looking. She looks amazing, so close now to the baby being born!"

The intimate picture of Victoria's bump is a rarity as the singer turned designer has been covering it up throughout her pregnancy.

"I’m so proud to be pregnant and I feel so blessed and so happy, I really do" said the star to fashion website Women's Wear Daily "But I’m just not that kind of person. So, no, I won’t be taking my clothes off. I don’t think anyone needs to see that, other than my husband. Absolutely not."

Victoria and David are said to be welcoming the arrival of their baby daughter in the next couple of week.
