- Victoria Beckham has suggested all four of her children are dyslexic.The 44-year-old Spice Girl turned financially troubled fashion designer and 43-year-old husband David are the proud parents to sons Brookly, 20, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 14 and seven-year-old daughter, Harper Seven.
In an interview with the Financial Times, Vicky describes herself as “a self-diagnosed dyslexic” and opened up about her concerns that her children have been held back by learning difficulties.
Discussing her hopes for her offspring’s futures, Vicky explains that none of them are particularly academic – and says her sons feel guilty for not following in their father’s footballing footsteps.
“All three boys used to have contracts with Arsenal,” she told the publication.
“They were going to be footballers so they were signed at a very young age. And they were all really good,” she went on before revealing the lads dropped out of training one after the other.
“Brooklyn was the first to say that he didn’t want to play any more. And then Romeo decided he didn’t want to do it either. I remember Romeo sitting in the bath getting really upset, saying ‘I don’t want to let daddy down’. So I told him daddy just wants you to be happy. And now he’s playing tennis. Every day,” she said.
The boys are now pursuing different ambitions – with none quite excelling just yet.
Brooklyn has ambitions of booming a photographer – but his first collection of works, a book called What I See, was released to widespread critical panning.
- As Vicky explains, she is pinning sporting hopes on Romeo for a career in tennis.
While Cruz has released a single, If Everyday Was Christmas, in 2016 which caused controversy as he was 11 at the time, leading some critics (including Piers Morgan) to suggest he was being pushed into the limelight by his fame hungry parents.
