Victoria Beckham has THIS message for working mums: ‘Don’t feel guilty… feel proud!’

Gillian Fitzpatrick

Dubbed ‘Brand Beckham,’ she and her husband, David, have certainly built an incredible, multi-million empire.

And despite jetting around the world as she expands her hugely successful fashion brand, mum-of-four Victoria refuses to feel guilty.

Hear, hear, we say!

Promoting a new British Airways campaign, the 42-year-old is adamant that her children – who range in age from 18 to five years – have never missed out in her absence.

“As a working mother, you should never feel guilty, you should feel proud,” Victoria said. “You’re inspiring your children in the right way, being a strong woman going to work.”

It’s a sentiment that here at HerFamily we’re fully behind.

She went on to acknowledge that with juggling everything, mums don’t have a lot of time to “really relax”.

Ms Beckham then went on to gush in the same video – which was released to promote BA’s #unforgettable campaign – that her 41-year-old husband of more than 17-years is “fantastic”.

“The biggest influence in my life would definitely be David,” she stated. “He’s an incredible husband, he’s a fantastic father, he does an enormous amount of philanthropic work, so he inspires me every day.”

The duo were married in a high-profile ceremony in 1999 near Castleknock in Dublin and have four children: Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 12, and Harper, 5.
