For a lady who normally hides behind enormous sunglasses with her lips firmly pursed in a trademark pout, Victoria Beckham has proven a surprisingly candid interviewee.
In the latest issue of US Harpers Bazaar, the fashion designer and mum of four has shared intimate details of her family life with David and children, Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, 8, and Harper, 19 months.
Describing mornings in the Beckham household, theformer Spice Girl told the mag she wakes at 6.15am, cheekily divulging “I don’t make Victoria Beckham nighties, so I’ll leave it to everybody’s imagination what I sleep in.”
She then takes 30 minutes to get ready, after which she’ll be “nibbling while giving the kids all their breakfasts. And while that’s all happening, they’ll have a spelling test or a times table test. We have times tables on Post-its all over the fridge. So we’re quizzing each other in the morning, and we make it into, like, a little bit of a game.”
Victoria and husband David then share the school run, as she explains, “We leave the house. The boys go to three different schools. I do one or two of the drops because they all start around the same time. David does the other, so we go in totally different directions.
Later, once the working and school days are over, it’s back to family time for the world-famous clan, “At four o’clock, I leave the office and go and pick up the children, take them home, give them their dinner, take them to all their after-school activities.”
“David and I like to go out for dinner, either just the two of us or with the kids. We’ll go anywhere—Italian, French; the kids love sushi as well. That’s their favorite food. Nobu’s really great.”
Sounds like a fairly normal working mum’s day really.
Well, aside from having David Beckham for a husband, fitting in spelling tests during breakfast and dining at Nobu, that is.
