Workaholic star designer relishes hectic days
London: Victoria Beckham is distracted by work even when she is in bed with husband David Beckham. The fashion designer is quoted as saying in Now Daily, “When I’m lying in bed, I think about the next collection. That makes me sound insane, doesn’t it? That I’m getting into bed with David Beckham and thinking about clothes.”

Victoria, the mother of four kids, ensures that she keeps herself fit while looking after the kids and meeting her professional commitments. “I know that I’m lucky to be in a position to plan my diary around the kids’ assemblies and sports days. I never miss those.
“But on the other hand, I don’t ever watch TV,” she says. She rises early and hits the gym. (After training) I get the kids up, do breakfast, check if there are any spelling tests or maths tests, if they need football boots,” says the 40-year-old former Spice Girl.
Being a mother of four kids is not easy. “It’s complicated because two of the boys go to the same school, Brooklyn goes to a different school, Harper goes to another school, so usually David and I each do a school run.”
Victoria told The Guardian that she is glad that she can manage to fit in everything: “The thing is, I’ve always worked. I can’t imagine what I’d do all day if I didn’t work. I’m lucky that I do something I love, and I am proud as I think it’s a positive message to give to young women: if you want to have a career, and be married with children, then you can. It’s full-on, but it’s doable.”
