Victoria Beckham finally breaks her silence on those divorce rumours
Between managing a fashion line, raising four children, and being married to a footballing icon, it's evident that Victoria Beckham has her work cut out for her. As such, the last thing that she needs are vicious rumours circulating that she and her husband of 19 years are divorcing.
Social media went into meltdown last week over claims that the Beckhams were splitting, but a spokesperson quickly dismissed the speculation as "fake"."There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news," the representative stated. "This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time."
Now, the 44-year-old has spoken out for the first time about the state of her marriage following the divorce rumours, and it appears that the former Spice Girl and her husband are doing better than ever.
The fashion designer addressed the difficulty of raising a family and running a business as she broke her silence on rumours that she was splitting from the retired footballer.
"Like most women, I beat myself up," she said when speaking about her family life at the Forbes Women's Summit in New York. "I’m trying most importantly to be the best mum that I can. But I’m also trying to be the best wife and the best professional. It is a juggling act and it’s not easy.
"I have to remind myself, when I come home, ‘Put the phone down. It’s OK to not answer e-mails until the morning. Spend quality time with your children and David,'" she continued. "It’s really about getting that balance and just constantly checking in with yourself."
"I’m so lucky that I have the support of an incredible husband," she asserted. "He has always encouraged me to follow my dreams and passion. If it wasn’t for him supporting me, at home as well, it would be very difficult."
"We really are equal in everything we do at home with the children. He makes it possible. He’s at home making the school run, cooking the dinner, doing the homework with the kids. He’s the most fantastic husband and dad."
However, she added that she's "been known to hide in the bathroom at weekends just to send a little email", which we think is fair enough given all her different pursuits.
Indeed, Posh Spice's morning routine is known to be rather hectic. Not only does she need to wake and feed her four children, but she also manages to fit in not one but two workouts - and all before 9am. Speaking to the Sunday Times, Victoria said "I get up quite early, around 6am, and do an hour in the gym before the kids get up, then I give them breakfast and David or I take them to school."
She then fits in another workout before heading to the office. "I'm very disciplined, I have to be," she added, and yeah, I think you can say that again, Victoria...
Explaining that exercise provides her with some much needed (and well deserved) "me" time, Victoria continued "No one comes into the gym, no one follows me in there with a laptop. If I'm standing in the kitchen for too long, then laptops will come floating in my direction. Someone always wants something approved, something signed off. Other than the children no one dares come into the gym.
Well, there you have it. While we will never know what is actually going on in the Beckham's marriage - or that of any celebrities' for that matter - it's important to remember that it is literally none of our business.
