Victoria Beckham: My Family Is "Much More Normal Than People Think"
Life with Posh Spice isn't quite so posh these days -- at least according to Victoria Beckham. The former Spice Girl and 39-year-old mother of four graces the cover of Vogue Australia for the magazine's September issue, and though she looks as glam as ever, she insists she's much less Hollywood than she appears to be.
"Honestly, once the children are in bed, I'd rather work or shove on a face pack and pluck my eyebrows," the fashion mogul says of how she likes to spend her evenings. "By the time Brooklyn's finally gone to bed, it's all I'm fit for. Really, we're much more normal than people think."
That's especially true now that the ex-pop star's husband, soccer stud David Beckham, is retired. (The L.A. Galaxy athlete ended his 20-year career in the sport on May 18.)
"We're all so proud of David," Beckham -- mom to Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, 8, and Harper, 2 -- tells Vogue of her spouse, whom she married in 1999. "Having supported him at clubs all over the world for the past 15 years and seen how he has been an inspiration not just to me and the children but also to millions of people, we are now just really excited at the prospect of spending more time as a family."
Bonding with her husband and kids is important to the designer, who told Vogue China earlier this summer that she "feels guilty" being a working mom. "It's a huge juggling act, when you are a working mother and looking after your family," she explained. "Millions and millions of women around the world are doing this every day, but it's not easy and yes, you feel guilty every time you walk out the door to go to work."
"I really enjoy being a mum," she said during a Vogue Festival event in April. "I love [my children] and I'd do anything for them. I also love what I do. I think anyone who says it's easy is lying."
