Sporty Spice Mel C went to see baby Brooklyn yesterday - and she said she hopes he will play for Liverpool.

Mel, a huge fan of the Kop favourites, sparked a great debate about the mite's possible footballing future. Earlier, David Beckham's dad Ted said his ambition for his new grandson is "for him to play for Manchester United, of course."

Grinning Sporty, 25, turned up at London's Portland Hospital wearing a Baby Spice T-shirt and carrying a dozen silver and black balloons. She spent 1 1/2 hours with Victoria and Becks - and cooed at the baby. She said: "I'm really excited for them. I hope Brooklyn plays for Liverpool, not Man United, one day."
