Victoria Beckham said that her little girl Harper Beckham wants to play football when she grows up. The fashion designer said that she was sad, and added that "it was a dagger through the heart" as she wanted one of her children to take up fashion.
The 41-year-old said that though Harper loved clothes, make-up and loved to wear her shoes, she was a tomboy and wanted to play football just like her brothers, Mirror UK reported. The four-year-old had no desire to follow her into fashion.
The designer was speaking on “ Good Morning America” before her show at the New York Fashion Week on Sunday. She unveiled her Spring/Summer 2016 collection at the fashion week.
“She said to me the other day: ‘Mummy I think I want to play football.’ (It was) a dagger through the heart,” the British beauty said.
She added that all her boys play football, so at least she expected one of her children to follow her footsteps. Victoria now hoped that her oldest child Brooklyn, who is a model and appeared on the cover of Miss Vogue October issue, takes after her.
The 16-year-old said in his first-ever interview with the magazine that he wanted to pursue arts and photography. He along with his famous dad, David Beckham, sat front row during Victoria’s show, while cheering for her.
The former Spice Girl said that people did not take her seriously when she made an entry into the fashion world. People were prejudiced against her as she belonged to Essex. She said that she was ready for the response she got at that time, but she did not want to prove others wrong. On the contrary, Victoria said that she wanted to prove herself that she could take up the challenge and was more interested in her final product.
Meanwhile, the designer who is known for her fitted, tailored and well cut designs talked about raising four kids. She and her retired footballer husband have four kids, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10 and Harper. Victoria said that both of them have always been strict with the kids.
She gushed about her children saying that they had "great manners" and always said please and thank you. But, the designer was slightly worried about one area on which she could not discipline them, and that was football. She said that they kept playing football inside the house.
