David and Victoria Beckham snuck out of hospital with their baby boy yesterday (24.02.05) - behind a giant Pepsi banner. The Real Madrid ace and the former Spice Girl, who celebrated the arrival of baby Cruz on Sunday (20.02.05), were so keen for paparazzi not to snap their beloved boy they went to extreme lengths to cover him up. The couple, who already have two sons, Brooklyn, five, and two-year-old Romeo, got security guards to place the huge poster over a side door at Madrid's Ruber International Hospital while Victoria and Cruz were placed in blacked-out car to wait for David to come and pick them up. The family are now thought to be resting at their exclusive Madrid mansion. The move has sparked speculation the couple have sold exclusive pictures of Cruz to a celebrity magazine for a huge sum, meaning he can't be seen out in public. A source said: "To have such an elaborate charade to stop photos being taken of them with their baby son means that they want to control and do their own photos.

Publications will be queuing up for the rights to the pictures."
