Victoria Beckham Wins New Moms Over With Honesty

GossipMonger 10

victoria beckham working momNow this is something I never, ever thought I would say: Victoria Beckham has charmed the pants off of me, or at least the mom in me. After years of watching that skinny lady pop out baby after baby, always appearing thinner when she steps out in her impossibly high heels, it appears Posh Spice has hit a wall.

You see, baby Harper isn't treating the Beckhams very well. That little girl they wanted so badly is not much of a sleeper, and it's starting to show on Vic's face. Am I horrible for rejoicing in this, or just relieved that this particular celebrity is finally being honest about the toll being a mom takes on a lady? Even a beautiful, rich lady, who happens to be married to an incredible hunk. Thanks Mrs. Beckham for finally being honest about what's going on in your house.

More from The Stir: Victoria & David Beckham Introduce Harper Seven With Another Classy Move

Apparently Posh has been getting some slack for looking "miserable" when she's out and about. Addressing these insults, Victoria explains how it is having a newborn and trying to be a working mom. Or, "mum" as the British say. According to US Weekly, Victoria explains: "I'm not getting much sleep at all. Harper's not sleeping that great, and I've been taking Skype business calls throughout the night, too, because of the collections. I'm up with the baby as all mums are, and I wouldn't have it any other way. There's not a team of people doing it for me." (Emphasis, mine.)

Way to go, Becks. Way to go. Instead of smiling and hiring more help, she's buckling down and doing what all of us working moms do: work at night and pray for an uninterrupted block of time for sleep. I've always felt Victoria Beckham was more than a little bit alien, and this finally makes her human to me. Granted, I was a wreck with only one baby, and she's got four. But if that's what it takes to break down the perfect facade, you go Harper. 

Does this admission make you like Victoria Beckham more?

I like her and I like that she's exhausted and doesn't have a perfect sleeping baby right away, because lord knows my son didn't sleep well til he was a year.

But she also doesn't have to work. So I don't really feel sorry for her. I don't understand why all these celebrities jump right back into work when they don't have to.

I agree with Kwiat2.  Just slow down and enjoy being a Mom if you can.  It won't last forever.

I love her! Not all mom's feel the need to quit working when they have a baby. She didn't say one thing was hurting the other and she wasn't looking for anyone's sympathy, hence the "I wouldn't have it any other way" comment she made. She doesn't have to slow anything down,she is enjoying being a mom and being a fashion designer at the same time.

This line irked the shit out of me "Thanks for finally being honest about what's going on inside your house". Who the hell are you that she needed to share in the first place? Are you really so miserable as a mom that you need a celebrity to say the same to make you feel better about your pathetic life? People, spend less time cyber stalking celebs and more time improving your own lives. It's just reall pathetic.

You people don't seriously think she's the one getting up with this baby, do you? I'm sure it's the nanny who is lacking sleep, not "Posh".
