Victoria Beckham reveals she once forgot Brooklyn on the school run
See Victoria Beckham is such a normal mum, she does the school run for goodness sake.
VB, who could easily afford childcare, makes a point of doing it all herself (or so she says).
Judging by the following story though, it’d probs be a good idea to get a bit of help.
While talking to Vanity Fair mag about the new Range Rover she has helped design she manages to slip in a story, which involves a Range Rover but at the same time makes her seem like your average housewife. Clever.
She said: “Oh my God, you know what I did the other day? This is a funny story. I got up in the morning, and I knew that I had a whole morning full of conference calls. So I got up early with Harper, sorted Harper out, got all the kids their breakfast, got them ready for school, put Harper in the car seat, and said, ‘Come on, kids, we have to get going or we’re going to be late’.
“Every morning I take Brooklyn, and David takes the little boys to school. We take it in turns because they go to two different schools.”
Thanks for all the added detail Vicky, although we’re pretty sure no one really cares who takes the kids to school.
Anyway, she continued: “So I jump in my Range Rover, put the car seat in, put my iPod on—obviously very important—and I drive to school.”
Ah the Range Rover, nicely slipped in, very subtle.
Here’s the punch line: “And then I realize, I’d left Brooklyn in the kitchen. I was driving along, talking away, and all of a sudden, I looked at the front seat, and I was like, ‘Shit! Shit! I’ve forgot something!’
“I’d gotten down the road, and I literally had to turn around and drive back up the driveway. And David was standing there in the driveway with all three boys, just [shakes her head].”
Hang on, isn’t Brooklyn about 13 now, so surely he’s old enough to get himself in the car? Who cares though we just love the image of David standing there, probs in his white y-fronts, looking unimpressed with his wife.
She finishes the anecdote saying: “And I felt like such an idiot because I was in such a rush. Harper was in the car, I was in the car, and we were on the way to school. But we did not have the child who needed to go to school.”
Oh blimey, it’s all too much. How very silly of you Victoria. This is kind of like Home Alone 2.0, involving a super famous family and lots of mod cons. At least she didn’t leave Harper in her car chair on the car roof, now that would really get us chuckling.
