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.”
