Victoria Beckham is a woman of many hats, with some knowing her from her days as Posh Spice, while others love and respect her position in the fashion and beauty industries.

But first and foremost, Victoria is a mum to four kids, and is dealing with the real struggle of raising them in the social media age.

While her sons are older, with Brooklyn now 23 and married to Nicola Peltz, and Romeo and Cruz now in their late teens, her experience raising a little girl, Harper, 10, has been understandably different.

While her brothers are stepping into the public eye, Victoria recently confirmed to Vogue that her daughter is not yet on social media, much to the relief of her parents.

“Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about that just yet. But seeing how cruel people can be, yes it really does [concern me],” Victoria revealed in a profile with Vogue.

“She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family, and she surrounds herself with nice friends.

“But it is quite terrifying, I can’t lie.”

And while Harper loves to use makeup at home, she hasn’t begun to push any boundaries when it comes to fashion just yet.

“She’s not one of these kids who are going out with a full face of makeup and a crop top,” Victoria said in the interview.

“She actually said to me recently, ‘Mummy, I’ve seen some pictures of you when you were in the Spice Girls and your skirts were just unacceptable. They were just too short’.”

Then David piped up and said ‘Absolutely, Harper!’,” she quipped.

“She was actually quite disgusted at how short my skirts were. I said, ‘Are you never going to wear skirts like that?’ She said, ‘absolutely not.’ We’ll see,” she joked.

Despite Harper’s obvious distaste for her mother’s fashion choices in the 1990s, the pair are clearly quite close.

Victoria has been very encouraging towards Harper throughout her young life.

“Every day when Harper goes to school, she walks up the stairs and I give her a kiss,” she revealed to Metro in 2018.

“I say, ‘Harper, you’re a girl, you can achieve anything. You can do anything that you want to do’,” she explained.

“That’s my message to her constantly. She knows she can do everything and probably more than her brothers can. We talk about it a lot.”

And it seems the support is very much mutual, with Harper throwing her support behind her mum.

In 2020, Victoria took to her Instagram Stories to share a drawing Harper had given her.

“Follow your heart but take your brain with you,” she wrote alongside it.
