Victoria Beckham says juggling family life and work makes her want to ‘scream out loud’ in frustration

VICTORIA Beckham has admitted she often feels “like screaming” due to the stress of her fashion career and her family.

The former Spice Girls star, 46, said it felt like a “juggling act” putting up with the pressures of work alongside husband David, 45, and their kids Brooklyn, 21, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and Harper, nine.

Victoria said: “Quite often I just feel like screaming, I’m not going to lie.

“I’m very lucky that I have such a great support system around me, but it is a juggling act when you’ve got a lot of children and you’re busy at work and you’ve got a husband.”

The designer insisted she has no time for negativity though when it comes to her eponymous fashion brand, or anything else in her life.

She continued: “I always say dream big and then dream even bigger.

“I think you’ve just got to work really, really hard and have a good work ethic, staying focused and really not paying attention to any negativity that would ever surround me. I’m a very positive person.

“I think that being a mum is the most important job in the world. I love what I do professionally and I take it very, very seriously but there is nothing more serious than having children.

“You start with these little babies and it’s your responsibility to make sure that you are helping to bring up really good people.”

She added: “I try to be the best mum, I try to be the best wife, I try to be the best professional… I mean, I’m trying.”

Victoria rose to fame in the Spice Girls in 1996 and went on to have a solo career before moving into fashion.

But she said her drive has been with her from a young age, as her dad Anthony instilled a solid work ethic in her.

Speaking in a new YouTube interview called Victoria Beckham's Secret to Balancing it All, she recalled: “The amount of times I’ve been kicked down but you know, I’ll spring back up again because I love what I do.

“I always had to work really, really hard and I don’t know what made me keep going and keep fighting. But I did and I continue to do that.

“I think I get it from my dad. I used to phone my parents from college when I was a dancer and I’d say, ‘I can’t cope, I don’t want to do this anymore.’
“My mum would say, ‘Come home, we’ll go to the shopping centre and we’ll buy a new pair of shoes,’ and my dad would say, ‘No you say there and you stay focused and you continue to work.’ And I did.

“Nothing has ever come easily. I’ve had to work at everything. Even becoming successful, I think it’s not becoming successful that is the most challenging, I think it’s maintaining that success, that is the toughest, toughest part.”

This week, her former bandmate Emma Bunton revealed they had staged a mini Spice Girls reunion for a socially distanced walk to catch up with each other.

Emma, Mel B, Geri Horner and Mel C are currently planning to go on tour again next year to mark the 25th anniversary of their debut single Wannabe, although Victoria is not expected to be involved.

Explaining why she chose not to be involved in the 2019 UK reunion tour, she previously said: “That’s something that was great then but a lot of things have changed. I have my business and I’m really, really busy with what I’m doing.”
