Victoria and David Beckham’s four children have often been described as the most “normal” and “polite” kids in showbiz, and now fashion guru Victoria has given us a rare insight into life as a Beckham child in the most adorable open letter.
We mean, if this isn’t enough to make your heart go all mushy on a Saturday morning then we don’t know what is.
Baring her soul in the special collection of ‘Letters From Mum’ written for Time magazine to honour Mother’s Day (in America, don’t panic – the UK’s Mother’s Day was AGES ago), we have learned exactly what life is like for fifteen-year-old Brooklyn, 12-year-old Romeo, 10-year-old Cruz, and 3-year-old Harper.
In the note, Victoria describes motherhood as her greatest achievement, sharing: “The emotional connection I feel towards my children brings boundless elation and joy as well as the inevitable worry and concern.
“Each moment of every day is filled with different energies, activities, feelings and a lot of comedy.
“From playing sport to lounging on the sofa, each of my children fill every second with laughter, music and discussion.
“They are kind hearted and well-mannered and have incredibly enquiring minds, and I feel incredibly blessed to be surrounded by these phenomenal human beings.”
The 41-year-old superstar and squillionaire goes on to reveal that her kids aren’t your typical Hollywood brats, as she and hubby David are determined not to spoilt them, adding: “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.
“I hope that I, together with their father inspire them to dream big and be the best version of themselves that they can be.”
Well, judging by the fact that Brooklyn works part time in a local cafe for the minimum wage and Romeo recently completed the Junior London Marathon for charity, we reckon Posh and Becks have done pretty well on that front.
Kudos all round, you guys.
Victoria finally shares the struggles of being such a busy working mum…. And it only gets 100x more adorable, she writes: “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. That sense of feeling connected makes being apart that little bit easier.
“My admiration goes out to mothers everywhere, as they constantly put their own needs behind those of their children, embracing daily uncertainties and entering the new uncharted territories that each day brings, to be, in return, rewarded with joy and unending love.”
Anybody else have something in their eye? Or is that just us being overly emosh?
Either way it’s safe to say that we bloomin’ love the Beckhams even more than we did before.
