VB ‘no pushover’

Victoria Beckham can be strict with her kids says former Spice Girl Mel C, but she's "an incredible mom".

Victoria Beckham is a strict mom.

The 39-year-old fashion star brings up her brood of four with her husband David and is often seen out and about with her children; Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, 9 and two-year-old Harper.

Victoria isn’t scared to show the kids who is boss, says her former Spice Girls bandmate Mel C.

“Victoria is an incredible mom. Her kids are really well behaved. Victoria’s quite strict – in fact, all the Spice moms are,” laughed Melanie to British magazine Now.

Melanie has five-year-old daughter Scarlet with ex-partner Thomas Starr and has spoken out about how tough it is to raise a child alone.

That star, who’s stayed close to Victoria, is pleased her friend is back in Britain even though finding time to see each other is sometimes tricky. The Beckhams relocated to London from Los Angeles last year.

“It’s crazy – I see Victoria less now she’s moved to the UK. We’re constantly like ’We’ve got to get together,’ but everyone’s busy. So we’ve started the ‘40th birthday club’. Her birthday will probably be the next time all the Spice Girls get together.

Victoria will hit the milestone birthday on April 17 and rumours have surfaced that the occasion will be marked with a lavish bash.

Melanie is already thinking about what she and the other Spice Girls – Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell – can buy the celebrated fashion designer, but admits it’s a daunting task.

“When Geri turned 40 in 2012, we clubbed together and bought her a really beautiful necklace with a pendant on it. Then, when it was my 40th in January, they bought me this beautiful bracelet with a diamond pendant – it’s so special to me because it’s from all of four of them.

“We might do the same thing for Victoria. She’s very scary to buy for though. But I think we know each other well enough to know what she’d like,” she commented.
