Victoria Beckham Is Teaching Daughter Harper to Be a Strong Woman: “You Can Do Anything!”
Her Spice Girl days may be over, but Victoria Beckham isn't giving up on girl power. While speaking at the Forbes' Women's Summit on Tuesday, June 19, Victoria — who was there to talk about her multi-million dollar clothing line — highlighted how important female empowerment is in both the professional and personal world.
"Regarding girl power, I am still banging on that drum, and I'm not going to stop," she confessed. And she's passing those life lessons on to her youngest child and only daughter, Harper Beckham. The fashion designer shared, "When I take Harper to school I tell her, 'Harper you're a girl and you can do anything.'"
And while she's not even seven years old yet, Victoria has said that the youngest Beckham kid already has a career in mind — and it's not what you may think. "She's a strong woman. She wants to be an inventor. She's a strong smart woman. A little woman," Victoria revealed.
Victoria also spoke about balancing her work and family life in the wake of rumors that she and her husband, David Beckham, are on the brink of a split. According to Hello! magazine, Victoria said, "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."
The former Spice Girl — who will celebrate her 19th wedding anniversary on July 4 with David — was also quick to defend him. "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," Victoria shared.
