Victoria Beckham is reported to be having a hard time feeding baby Harper Seven, though dad David Beckham was thrilled to help feed the baby for the first time!
Victoria has been breastfeeding baby Harper since she was born in July, and it was widely reported that the star has stayed at home since the birth so she could lose the baby weight fast, before the New York fashion show.
It appears that reality is much different, however, and Posh Spice was actually staying at home to look after her newborn, and nurse her bad back! Victoria suffered a slipped disc during the C-section, leaving her in a great deal of pain when she needs to prop up the baby when breastfeeding.
Her injury is making holding her newborn baby girl difficult, and means she requires a lot of help from husband David – who has been often seen out and about with the couple’s sons, enjoying the Summer.
Now Victoria is starting to pump milk, to relieve some of her pain, and to allow David to experience feeding his baby girl with bottled breastmilk.
A source close to the couple revealed; “Victoria is in a lot of pain and is even struggling to hold Harper. Victoria is trying to remain upbeat because she really does feel blessed with the birth of her beautiful daughter. She is determined not to let this injury overshadow the happiness surrounding Harper’s arrival.”
David spoke to People magazine about feeding his baby, saying; “It’s important that they have that mother-daughter bond and breastfeeding, I think, is really an incredible thing. We’re in the process of putting bottles in now, so that means I get to feed her – which has been amazing.”
The family has always been close knit, with the parents regularly spotted out with their children – Gordon Ramsey was recently spotted looking after the Beckham boys while dad trained with LA Galaxy, and they are often seen with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and the adorable Suri Cruise!
David revealed that Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8 and Cruz, 6, are all smitten with their sister, and the whole family is very grounded.
“It’s just the way (Victoria and I) were bought up as kids, it’s the way we are bringing our kids up. We make sure that the most important thing to us is our family and we’re all grounded. No matter what goes on around us, no matter what the situation is, we come together as a family and we deal with it.”
Hollywood friends are forever commenting on how well behaved the Beckham boys are, and with Brooklyn already following his Dad into best dressed lists, the family mentality certainly seems to work well for the Beckhams – and they are one of the most successful celebrity marriages. Harper is sure to challenge Suri for her ‘most fashionable celebrity child’ title too – her outfits are sure to be worth waiting for!
