Fashion designer and Spice Girl Victoria Beckham shared that her daughter Harper has become a little ’embarrassed’ by her famous parents on the school run. Victoria, 48 appeared on Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert where she revealed that Harper, 11 had asked her footballer father David Beckham, 47 to drop her off ‘a little bit away from the school’.
Victoria shared that her husband was ‘heartbroken’ by the fact that his daughter does not think he is ‘cool’.
However Victoria said she understands, as she was once embarrassed by her father dropping her off at school as a teenager in a Rolls Royce.
Victoria said that her own father, Tony Adams, used to drop her off at school in a Rolls Royce. She explained that the entrepreneur was “very proud” of his vehicle at the time.
“We had the Rolls Royce but because he was an electrical wholesaler he also had a van. Me and my sister used to say like ‘please drop us [off] in the van’,” she commented.
She continued: “I think more kids at school were being dropped off in a van and so when we were in the Rolls, we’d be like ‘oh please drop us down the road’.”
She recalled feeling “a little bit embarrassed” at the time but added: “Nowadays, I’d be like literally pull up right to the front gate. And I’d be proud to get out of that Rolls.”
‘David was having this conversation the other day when he was dropping off Harper. She was like, ”Daddy can you drop me a little bit away from the school,” Victoria explained.
Saying David was ‘heartbroken,’ she added: ‘She’s our youngest daughter and he was like ,” oh really, this is happening.”
“And then he was like ‘if it’s uncool that David Beckham’s your dad…” I mean let’s be honest what hope do most of the other kids have.’
Harper later teased on the podcast that it could have just been because David was wearing a “bad outfit that day”. Victoria said: “It could just be as basic as that.”
She added about welcoming Harper back in 2011 that having a girl was a welcomed surprise.
She and David are also parents to Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 20, and Cruz, 17.
‘It’s crowd control when you have so many children! And the boys are so good with their little sister. Imagine having three big brothers?’ she said.
