David and Victoria Beckham have finally addressed the state of their 19-year marriage in a new interview with Vogue, having been plagued by split rumours in recent months.
Fashion designer Victoria, 44 ,admitted persistent speculation regarding the state of their marriage comes with the territory.
‘People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years, so David and I are pretty used to ignoring the nonsense and just carrying on as normal,’ she said.
But these things have a wider effect on the people around us, and that’s unfair.’
Talking about brand Beckham, Victoria said:
‘We both realise that we are stronger together than we are as individuals. Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago? It’s all about the family unit.’We are much stronger – the six of us – than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond and that is key.’
The four Beckham kids have obviously inherited their mom Victoria‘s sense of fashion, as made evident on the cover of British Vogue‘s October issue, which promises a dialogue about “family, fame & fashion” from the former Spice Girl and husband David Beckham.
While the children (Harper Seven, 7, Cruz David, 13, Romeo James, 16, and Brooklyn Joseph, 19) posed poshly for the magazine’s cover with their mom and dog Olive, the outdoor shoot also included a little summer-activity fun.
In their accompanying interview, Victoria tells Vogue that Harper has “been able to run in Alaïa platforms since she was 3,” but doesn’t wear heels or makeup outside of the house.
“On one hand, she’s quite girly, but on the other hand she has three big brothers and likes to run around and play football. She’s not scared of being pushed over,” her mom explains, revealing that her youngest child “wants to be an inventor.”
