Victoria Beckham opens up about parenting, having fun and what really makes “a good partnership”

Victoria Beckham is Elle UK’s May cover star, and has seriously opened up to the magazine about her life.

She had nothing but praise for her husband David Beckham (we mean, who wouldn’t?!) and said he was key to keeping their family together – especially during her busiest working periods…

“He’s great,” she said.

“During fashion week, when I’m working, the children will be in New York and he’s already planned to take them to museums and then out for dinner on Saturday night, so he is very good at that sort of thing – as am I.

“That’s how you can show your support in a marriage, by saying, ‘You know what, I’ve got this’. That’s what makes a good partnership.”

No wonder they renewed their wedding vows!

VB also went on to say something which may shock a lot of people… especially when her lack of a smile in photographs is taken into consideration…

“I like to have a drink and really have fun,” she added.

“I’m really good value at dinner parties – I want to relax and have a laugh. I like to have fun, and I think that often surprises people.”

It doesn’t surprise us – there’s no way you can be in a band like The Spice Girls and not know how to let your hair down.

You can read the rest of Victoria’s interview, and see some truly stunning pictures, in the Elle UK May issue, which hits newsstands on April 13.
