Victoria Beckham: “Our Schedules Revolve Around The Kids”

Victoria Beckham: "Our Schedules Revolve Around The Kids"

As she juggles a growing fashion empire and her brood, Victoria Beckham, 37, opens up to Vogue about her four kids – Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 9, Cruz, 7, and Harper, 8 months – losing the baby weight, putting family first, and staying in America.

On losing the baby weight: “I worked out a lot. I ran a lot. I did it six days a week. I become quite obsessive when I get into something.” She adds, “I’ve never been a 6ft tall, skinny model (she’s 5ft 4in), so therefore I wanted to create an illusion.”

On her three boys: ‘They cuddle up like little peas in a pod, but only on a non-school night.” David then jokes, ”Or when Mummy’s had a glass of wine.”

On Romeo’s birthday party: For Romeo’s birthday, as a surprise, the family took him to hang out in Justin Bieber’s studio while he was recording his Christmas album. Bieber sent the boys signed guitars afterward, but Romeo’s was signed to ‘Pax’ (Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s son). “So we got one of the Jolie-Pitts’ guitars,” Victoria says.

On putting family first: “David and I make sure our schedules revolve around the kids. Because we are really focused on what we do work-wise, it allows us to be balanced.” David adds, ”We haven’t seen an adult movie in years. Nothing above PG-13.”

On staying in Los Angeles: “I’m definitely a glass-is-always-half-full, not half-empty, kind of person, which is why I love living in America. It would have been fun for David to play in Europe again—he’s not getting any younger. And Paris would have been very exciting for me, career-wise, but we came to the conclusion that it’s all about the children—they’re the most important people here. Also, David came here to raise the profile of soccer in America; I’m really proud of him, but his job is not done yet.”

      You can see her smiling a lot and in a more normal self during her Spice Girls years, especially the early years before she “adopted” this stupid no-smile personality of her now.

    What a nice message to your kids: You are not good enough as you are, therefore, you must “create an illusion.”

      That’s what you get out of that comment? She works in the fashion industry. It has nothing to do with what she is to her children or the hopes and expectations she has for them. It’s about looking taller when you’re 5’4″ and everybody else in your industry is 6 feet tall. Nothing more than that. It’s also the reason that heavy women wear black and don’t wear horizontal stripes; they’re creating an illusion. Is every woman who wears black to hide a few extra pounds sending a bad message to their kids? Or more likely, you just don’t like her and felt like being catty.

        You’ve got half that right, I don’t like her. I don’t like the message she sends about women’s appearance. I don’t like that she starves herself and passes it off as normal. I don’t like her nasty, bony, always-miserable-looking face. I don’t like that she thinks she needs to appear 6 feet tall when she’s not, as if only women who are six feet tall are attractive or worthy.

    You’re right, she NEVER smiles. In my house, we called people like that PICKLEPUSSES.

    I thought she had a herniated disc – how the h*ll did she run with an injury like that, these things don’t heal overnight.
