Victoria Beckham admits she’s not superhuman after all
In a rare and rather telling interview, Victoria Beckham has revealed, among other things, that the recent stress of deciding whether or not to move to Paris made her ill.
The popstar turned fashion designer said:
“I left LA to come back to the UK for Christmas, not knowing whether I was leaving for two weeks or 18 months, so that brought with it a certain amount of anxiety.
“Of course I've got people to help me, but in the end there's a lot that only I can do. Finding new schools for the children isn't something anyone else can do for me. Plus the fact that this season - between the September and February fashion weeks in New York - is such a short one.
“It got to the point, just before Christmas, when for the first time ever, I wasn't actually sure if I could cope. I was working in London and the day I finished work, I went to bed and woke up at 4 o'clock in the morning with a chest infection and throat infection. I very rarely get sick – I can't remember the last time before that that I had a cold or anything – but I guess I was really feeling the pressure.”
In the same interview Posh also looks back on how little time off she had when baby Harper was born.
She said, “Stopping work wasn't an option for long, but I took as much time off as I could. I spent the whole summer with my boobs out, breastfeeding. I loved it. It was heaven. She's such a good baby.
She then added, “She just loves fashion. She sat through all the presentations in New York and she just cooed. I was so proud. Finally there's someone in my house who likes fashion more than premiership football. Result.”
