Victoria Beckham has just participated in the podcast “Armchair expert” of Dax Sherpard, where she has revealed that Harper Seven Beckham, her 10-year-old daughter, is ashamed of her parents’ fame.
The little girl doesn’t even want her schoolmates to know that she is the daughter of the famous football player David Beckham and the ex member of the Spice Girls. To avoid this, Harper asks her parents when they take her to class to leave her with the car a few meters away from the school door so that they do not connect her with them.
Although at first it seems not an important request, for the ex footballer has been a hard blow. David thinks his daughter doesn’t want to be connected to him because he’s not cool and this leads him to be heartbroken as he doesn’t want the little girl to see him like that.
For her part, Victoria, has commented in the podcast that she understands the decision of her daughter since she herself when she was a teenager lived a similar situation when her father left her with the car at the door of the high school, although in her case she was not ashamed of his fame.
Seen from the outside it does not seem that the girl’s motive is because she thinks that her father is not cool, as Beckham believes, but that she does not want special treatment or be constantly under the spotlight of her classmates if they know that their parents are famous.
Precisely to prevent this same motive and let their son have a normal childhood, David and Victoria Beckham hid their fame from their eldest son, Brooklyn, for 13 years. He found out that his parents were known all over the world one day when he went to a football game where people shouted his father’s name. Brooklyn remembers that he was very surprised but that he appreciates that his parents decided to do that for him.
Maybe they should have tried to follow the same procedure with their youngest daughter, although without a doubt, it is quite complicated as now their brothers are also known.
