Victoria Beckham has admitted that she left her 13-year-old son Brooklyn behind when she was supposed to be taking him to school. The busy mum-of-four strapped in 10-month-old baby Harper Seven before leaving her LA home – then noticed something was wrong.
‘I jumped in my Range Rover, put the car seat in, put my iPod on and drove to school,’ says Victoria, 38. ‘And then I realised I’d left Brooklyn in the kitchen. I was driving along, talking away, and all of a sudden, I looked down at the seat and I was like: “Sh*t! Sh*t! I’ve forgotten something”.’
Victoria, who’s also mum to Romeo, 9, and Cruz, 7, has admitted in the past that life as a parent and successful fashion designer leaves her exhausted.
And embarrassed Victoria puts this specific case of forgetfulness down to the hectic day she was having. ‘I felt like such an idiot because I was in a huge rush,’ Victoria tells Vanity Fair. ‘I’d gotten down the road, and I literally had to turn around and drive straight back.’
