Victoria Beckham is a force to be reckoned with. She’s a successful businesswoman, fashion designer, singer, and dancer. We all know and love Victoria as “Posh Spice” from her chart-topping days in the pop group, Spice Girls. Since the group split back in 2000, she has managed to continue on with her success first as a solo artist, then fashion icon and now a well respected international fashion designer. The former pop singer turned designer is married to a professional soccer player, David Beckham. These two quickly rose to the top as a power couple in Hollywood and are cherished by fans for their strong family values, having been married for close to 20 years with four children! Victoria has been in the public eye for quite some time, but she’s extremely private, trying to stay out of the media. She has steered away from her pop career and become more focused on being a good mom and successful businesswoman. Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about Victoria Beckham:
10. Growing Up
Victoria comes from money. Her father, Anthony Williams Adams, was an electronic engineer and her mother, Jacqueline Doreen was an insurance clerk and hairdresser. Victoria said she used to get embarrassed when her father would drop her off at school in his Rolls-Royce. In an interview, she said, “My dad worked really hard and it was always his ambition to own a Rolls-Royce…So when he got his Rolls-Royce, he used to drive us to school in it every day and I was just mortified. We used to beg him to just drop us at the end of the road. He had a van for work and we used to beg him to take us in the van.” This is probably where her nickname “posh” comes from…She said the word “Posh” in England stands for “if you go to a nice restaurant, it’s a ‘posh’ restaurant, or if you have nice clothes, they’re ‘posh’ clothes.” Ever since she was little she’s had a ‘posh’ streak in her. Instead of using a typical school bag, she used to carry her books in a Gucci handbag.
