Victoria Beckham leads American Mother's Day posts with open letter to her children
Meanwhile Beyonce, J-Lo, Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow shared sweet family pics
It was Mother's Day in America this weekend and to mark the occasion, Victoria Beckham wrote a touching open letter to her children. The mum-of-4 wrote the letter about teaching her children Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and Harper, 3, not to take their "privileged life" for granted.
"Being in a position where they live such a privileged life, it is important that our children understand humility, that they appreciate how their parents have worked very hard to create this life for the family and that they, too, have a responsibility to work hard, be respectful and never, ever take anything for granted," she wrote in the letter published by Time.
The 41-year-old went on to talk about the struggles of being a working mum. "Like so many working mothers all over the world, I feel the constant struggle to be the best mother I can, whilst setting a good example to my children to work hard," she wrote. "I travel for work when it’s necessary, and I miss them all the time when I am away. But they hide notes in my suitcase, which I love to find when unpacking, and I always bring photographs of all the family and put them by my bed so they are the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see when I go to sleep.
"I love to hear their voices on the phone and seeing their faces—thank goodness for FaceTime."
