Victoria Beckham slams rumors that she and David are splitting up, insists she's trying to be "the best mother and wife"
Victoria Beckham isn't having it - she recently shut down rumors that she and her husband of almost two decades, star footballer David Beckham are splitting up. Hello! magazine reported, "I try really, really hard. I try hardest to be the best mother. I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional. When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David," she said, speaking at the Forbes Women's Summit in New York on Tuesday.
She said that she and David juggle responsibilities together. "I have the support of an incredible husband. We really are equal with everything we do at home with the children. When I'm away he's the one doing the school run and doing the cooking." She also revealed that she works hard at not bringing work home but it's not always possible. "I've been known to hide in the bathroom at weekends just to send a little email."
Recently, stories started circulating on social media about the much-loved couple, speculating that they were heading for a divorce. A rep told the same publication, "There is no impending statement, no divorce." The rep called the rumors "very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time".
The couple, who tied the knot in 1999 have four beautiful children. Brooklyn the eldest is 19, Romeo is 15, Cruz is 13 and Harper, 6. The fashion icon and former singer added that she will never stop talking about women empowerment. She said, "I was a Spice Girl married to a footballer. But the clothes spoke for themselves. I tell her [Harper], 'Harper you're a girl and you can do anything'. She's a strong woman. She wants to be an inventor. She's a strong, smart woman. A little woman. Regarding girl power, I am still banging on that drum, and I'm not going to stop."
Gushing about her hubby, she said, "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. Like most women, I beat myself up. I'm trying most importantly to be the best mum that I can. It is a juggling act and it's not easy," she said.
The rumors that circulated on social media were reportedly a result of rumors that a PR worker allegedly started. The worker was suspended for airing the false news that the famous couple, who have been couple goals for many years was finally calling it quits. She was found to have spread the rumors through her work email accounts.
