Victoria Beckham's Piggy Present

Beckham">David Beckham's wife has bought him some pigs.

Singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham paid £1,400 for two miniature pot-bellied Gloucester Old Spot cross-breed animals for the soccer star as an early Christmas present

A source said: "What can you possibly buy the multi-millionaire, superstar footballer who has absolutely everything?

"In the case of David Beckham, the answer is, obviously, a pair of cuddly designer piglets.

"Victoria fell in love with them and realised she'd found the perfect present."

The former Spice Girls star was said to be particularly keen on the pigs - which David wants to name Pinky and Perky after characters in a children's TV show - because they are easy to house-train.

The source added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: ""Micro pigs are incredibly clean and easy to train. They will be given the run of the place and could even end up watching TV on David and Victoria's laps."

The couple - who have three children, Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, seven, and Cruz, four - are not the only stars to think pigs make perfect pets.

Earlier this month, Paris Hilton added a fully-grown micro-pig called Miss Pigelette to her collection of animals, while 'Harry Potter' star Rupert Grint has adopted two of the animals.

George Clooney spearheaded the trend for pig ownership with his giant potbellied pig, Max, and was devastated when the animal died in 2006 after 18 years together.
