Victoria insists that she smiles in family photos, adding that smiling in every paparazzi picture is 'daft' in her opinion.
There is a reason why Victoria Beckham, born Victoria Adams, does not smile in many photos. In an interview with T, the New York Times style magazine, the mother of four opens up about her family as well as addresses the lack of smile in her photos.
When asked why she does not smile, Victoria answers, "When you're in a position to be paparazzi-ed just walking down the street, you'd look a little daft if you were smiling all the time." She adds, "I smile in family photos."
The fashion designer also opens up about her daily life with husband David Beckham and their children, saying that the family's chef and nanny only come a few days in a week. Therefore, David plays chef at home. "David does the cooking," Victoria says. The former soccer player apparently is good at it because "he decided to go to culinary school" when he lived in Italy.
Besides cooking, David also contributes to other household activities, such as taking their three children to school. Either Victoria or David always attends the boys' school events and parents meeting. The couple, who comes from hardworking families, tries to be with their children during important moments. Despite her busy activities, Victoria never misses the children's birthdays.
"We have what I consider to be normal birthday parties," Victoria says of her children's birthday bash. "I've been to parties in L.A. that are mind-blowing. I mean, quite literally mind-blowing. People get cellphones in the party bag, that sort of thing. Fabulous, fabulous parties. Ours aren't like that. They are normal kids' parties. We'll have a bouncy castle, a face painter."
