Victoria Beckham is exhausted.
Since welcoming daughter Harper last July, the mom-of-four has been on the go, criss-crossing the globe for fashion events, working with her design team, taking care of her kids. Speaking to UK’s The Mirror, Victoria hits back at recent criticism that she’s too skinny or plain old miserable: “I’m a working mum,” she says. “So give me a break.”
“Harper’s not sleeping that great, and I’ve been taking Skype business calls throughout the night too because of the collections,” Posh says. “I’m up with the baby as all mums are and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s not a team of people doing it for me. And then people want to say I look crap. Well, I’m a working mum, so give me a break.”
While she’s the first to admit she’s tired, Victoria is quick to dismiss those “miserable” claims: “Look, if people want to say I’m miserable then so be it,” she says. “I’m really not. I have a lot on my plate. I’m not going to lie about it, I’m tired. I’m really tired but I’m also very happy with my life. I’m basically just like any woman who’s working and has lots of children – it’s tough.”
Like most moms, she’s also quick to gush about her beautiful brood with her husband David Beckham, which includes Harper as well as boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
“The boys love sport and they’re very good at drawing and art. Brooklyn is amazing at creative writing too and Cruz is obviously a superhero. He’s in his own little world. They’re such great spirits but we’re very strict parents. You have to be with kids these days. They have to do their homework and if it’s not done then they can’t do other things,” she says, adding, “I just want them all to try their different things and work out what they want to do in life.”
So what about her very handsome hubby’s recent revelation that he’d love even more kids?
“I don’t know about that one,” Victoria admits. “I love being a mum and my children are my priority.”
When pressed, the busy mama explains, “The thing is I’m not against having more children. I feel lucky having the kids I have and I guess I do like being pregnant. But definitely not just yet. I want to enjoy the kids I’ve got right now. Our entire lives are planned around their lives. We don’t want to miss anything in their lives. Ever.”
