Victoria Beckham has opened up about how her family copes with rumours in the press about her marriage.
The Vogue interview marks Victoria’s 10 years in fashion, but she also touches on the untrue rumours about her marriage.
Victoria reveals she’s always been open with her children about the false rumours in the media.
She hints that she sat down with Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Harper, 7, and Cruz, 13, to reassure them after false claims the couple were going to divorce circulated on social media earlier this summer.
VB also explained why her daily routine starts at 5.30am and who goes on school trips.
Here we look at all the Beckham family secrets revealed in the rare interview…
How they addressed THOSE divorce rumours
“We’ve always tried to be open and honest with the children about the media, to give them simple examples where things get made up,” Victoria explains.
“As parents, we communicate together to ensure they are hearing reassurances from us, rather than listening to any gossip from kids at school or reading things online.”
Victoria and David never enjoy a romantic break
“Me and David never go away just the two of us,” Victoria explained.
“We’re always present with the children.”
The importance of ‘togetherness’
She doesn’t talk specifically about their rumoured divorce but instead discusses the importance of “togetherness”.
“We both realise that we are stronger together than we are as individuals,” she said.
“Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago?
“It’s all about the family unit.
“We are much stronger the six of us, than we would be if we were individuals.
“We respect that family bond and that is key.”
Victoria’s gruelling day starts at 5.30am
VB is incredibly disciplined and starts every day with a run on the treadmill in her home gym at 5.30am.
She then makes the children their breakfast and does the school run.
“I walk Harper to school. It’s about two miles and she talks the whole way,” she explained.
After dropping Harper off her trainer arrives for her dance-based workout before driving to her offices in Hammersmith, west London.
She gets home from work by six and the family sits down for dinner together.
No screens at dinner
Victoria revealed that no one in the family is allowed to use phones or iPads during dinner.
So they can “catch up” with eachother.
Not spoiling the kids
Despite the kids’ privileged upbringing, Victoria insists that they keep their own rooms tidy.
“It’s important that they do learn to do that themselves.
“We all muck in, which is important.”
The family has a nanny and support from both sets of parents but Victoria and David still do things like school trips.
And David when on Harper’s last school trip to Tesco.
“David went on that one,” laughs Victoria.
