Victoria Beckham Talks of Daughter’s Love For Soccer Over Fashion
Victoria Beckham is not holding out hope that her daughter Harper will be taking after her fashion footsteps. According to the former Spice Girl, she is a little tomboy who may be following in her father’s instead.
Victoria, once known as Posh Spice, has had a love affair with fashion for many years, walking the runways as well as designing her own line. Husband David Beckham has always been considered fashionable too, even when wearing nail polish and women’s headbands on the soccer field. Two of their children have modeled, with son Brooklyn landing the cover of Vogue, and Son Romeo modeling for Burberry.
So it would seem the natural progression would be for their daughter, Harper to be getting ready for the catwalk too but nope, not according to Victoria. She told Good Morning America, “She loves fashion as all little girls do. She loves putting makeup on and playing with my shoes, but she loves sports. She’s a little tomboy because obviously she has three brothers.”
Displaying a sense of humor Victoria said, “She said to me the other day, ‘Mommy, I think I want to play football. Dagger through the heart. I have three boys that want to play football. Come on, let one of them want to be in fashion or dance.”
Of course her husband is loving it. He recently shared a picture on Instagram of his daughter getting ready to score a goal with the caption, “Mia Hamm eat your heart out.” Also showing his sense of humor he followed up with, “Harper Seven taking lessons from her brothers (oh and her dad).” He added soccer ball and heart emojis.
She also shared that they are strict parents and how proud she is of how they are turning out, “We’ve always been strict with the children; they have great manners and they always say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and I think that’s very important,” though she also acknowledges the wilder side adding, “At the same time they’re still fun. And they still run around the house and they’re crazy and they’re singing and they’re dancing and they’re kicking footballs around, which I don’t allow them to do but that seems to be the one area that I can’t discipline them in. They will not stop playing football in the house.”
Victoria also spoke about her husband of 16 years, describing him as, “the best business partner that anybody could have. He’s a really incredible person. He inspires me every day.”
Life sounds pretty perfect for Victoria Beckham. Not only does she have a husband who is gorgeous and sweet, but her children sound adorable.
