Forget pickles and ice cream – it was cats and dogs that Victoria Beckham craved while pregnant. The former Spice Girl – who gave birth to daughter Harper in July – says she became obsessed with having a menagerie of pets but husband David Beckham wouldn’t allow it.
Victoria – who also has three sons, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 9, and six-year-old Cruz, with the soccer star – said, “When I was pregnant, I just wanted to get lots and lots of animals, for some reason. We talked about cats, but David said absolutely not.”
The stylish mom – who did manage to get David to agree to a new dog, Scarlett, during the pregnancy – also admitted to another obsession: regaining her figure following the birth of her daughter.
“Oh, listen, I worked at it. I was breast-feeding, so I ate super healthy, and I worked out seven days a week,” she said. “I wanted to burn all my leggings – I was adamant that by the time I went to fashion week I would be able to wear clothes.”
