A Family Affair: The Beckhams Run a Tight Ship at Home
Victoria Beckham opens up about life at home with her four children, which includes lots of dancing, soccer practice, and good manners.
The family that plays together stays together, right? Well, if you're a Beckham kiddo, that means playing soccer. Harper, 4, the only girl in the Beckahm brood of four kids, might be following in daddy's big foot steps, according to mom Victoria.
"She loves fashion, as all of the girls do. She loves putting makeup on and playing with my shoes," Beckham"‹ "‹told E! Online. "But she loves sports. She's a little tomboy because, obviously, she has three brothers." In fact, Beckham admits her daughter recently declared: "Mommy I think I want to play football!" Super cool for the little lady, considering the USA women's soccer team brought home the World Cup this year. But Mom was a little disappointed. "Come on! Let one of them want to be in fashion or dance!" the former Spice Girl joked.
Beckham and her soccer legend hubby run a tight ship at home. "We've always been strict with the children," she says. "They have great manners and they always say 'please' and 'thank you' and I think that's very important." (We do too!)
Though Beckham does admit defeat keeping all her ducks in a row at times: "They're still fun and they 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 one area that I can't discipline them in."
