Victoria describes ‘dagger to her heart’ as Harper turns to football


It seems David has the upper hand with this one!

Victoria Beckham has revealed that her daughter, Harper, has no desire to follow her mother into fashion – and wants to be a footballer instead. 

Speaking to ABC Good Morning America, the designer said it was a "dagger through the heart" when Harper, four, recently told her mother that she wants to play football.

The former Spice Girl said that she already has three sons that play football and to her dismay, her baby girl has become a tomboy. 

"She loves fashion as all little girls do, she loves putting makeup on and playing with my shoes… but she's a tomboy, she has three brothers."

"She said to me the other day: 'Mummy I think I want to play football.' (It was) a dagger through the heart. I have three boys who want to play football, come on, let one of them want to be in fashion!"

On the TV show, Victoria was described as a "Vogue Mom" as she appears on front covers of magazines while rising her family which include Harper, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13 and Cruz, 10. 

Her only hopeful so far is Brooklyn, having recently modelled for Miss Vogue. 

Meanwhile, this week Victoria revealed her latest collection at New York Fashion Week, for which she was given rave reviews. 

Mrs Beckham admitted that being in the Spice Girls prejudiced people against her when she first became a designer. 

"People did have preconceptions and I expected that but I wasn't out to prove anybody wrong, I just wanted to prove to myself I could do it".
