One Posh Family! Victoria Beckham Poses with Husband David and Their Kids for British Vogue
Gang’s all here — and stylishly, to boot.
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.”
In a second photo from the spread, shot by Mikael Jansson, the kids all point water guns at each other while their parents lounge on the grass. Victoria, 44, is the only family member looking at the camera — impressive, since Olive is jumping over her lap at that very moment!
“People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years,” Victoria says, adding that she and David, 43, have learned along the way to “[ignore] the nonsense” rumors surrounding their relationship since they wed almost two decades ago. “But these things have a wider effect on the people around us, and that’s unfair,” she admits.
“We both realize that we are stronger together than we are as individuals,” she explains. “Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago?”
Adds the fashion designer and singer, “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 Beckham brood recently celebrated a big benchmark for one of their members: Romeo, who turned sweet 16 on Saturday.
In a second festive image, Romeo sat in front of a bunch of silver and white balloons (as well as a table piled high with presents!), while in another, she showed off the birthday boy’s tennis-themed cake.

Another milestone among the family was Harper’s new haircut — which David, 43, performed himself! The former soccer star was doing his best to keep his emotions in check in a black-and-white photo he posted to Instagram in late July, showing him taking a pair of styling shears to his youngest child’s long locks.
While Harper was all smiles in anticipation of her new ‘do, David couldn’t help sporting a pouting expression as he looks down at his daughter’s soon-to-be-snipped hair.
He wrote, “Someone’s happy 😃 & someone’s not so happy ✂️ but I didn’t think it was possible for this little one to look anymore beautiful but ♥️”
