Victoria Beckham comes across as a woman who has it all, and manages it very effectively. She's been creating fashion collections whilst being photographed out with her sons playing or watching football, and not even the birth of her long awaited daughter Harper Seven seemed to faze her.
However, it seems Victoria did struggle to balance being a mum, a footballer's wife, and a fashion designer at the end of last year. Speaking to Now Magazine, Victoria revealed that as Christmas got closer, she began to feel ill and struggle with the pressure.
"I got to the point just before Christmas when for the first time ever, I wasn't actually sure if I could cope. I was working in London and the day I finished work, I went to bed and woke up at 4 o'clock in the morning with a chest and throat infection."
"I very rarely get sick. I guess I was really feeling the pressure."
Victoria has been snapped looking fantastic this weekend as she debuted collections at New York Fashion Week, with some pieces being inspired by Harper. She has been regularly snapped carrying baby Harper and protecting her from photographers, and was widely praised for her calm reaction when Harper threw up down her arm in an airport last week.
Her admittance of feeling the pressure will come as no surprise to mums with four children, but the interview comes just days after husband David Beckham revealed that he wanted a fifth and sixth child. Whilst the couple do employ nannies, they are both very hands-on with their children and are regularly photographed doing normal family activities.
With celebrity support like Eva Longoria, and reports that Victoria and Beyonce have bonded over their babies, hopefully she'll be feeling on top of her game again soon. She certainly looks it!
