Victoria Beckham Doesn’t Put on Make-Up in Front of Harper

Victoria Beckham with her daughter HarperVictoria Beckham doesn't apply make-up around her daughter to prevent her from copying her.

The 39-year-old fashion designer is so wary about 22-month-old Harper - who she has with husband David Beckham - picking up on her actions that she avoids putting on beauty products around the toddler to ensure she doesn't feel left out.

"I can't put on make-up when Harper's around, because she would join me immediately. She is a tomboy towards her brothers," she said.

Victoria admits she is aware of the pressure her children - also including three sons Cruz, eight, Romeo, 10, and Brookyln, 14 - are under while having famous parents, but makes sure they know they can do good with their celebrity status and doesn't spoil them: "[Cruz asked] 'Why is it good to be famous, mum?' My answer was, 'When you're famous you have a certain power to do good things.' That is how we started talking about charity. Cruz was really sweet and said, 'When people listen to what I say, I could spread some good messages.' The kids are under a lot of pressure to perform. I don't want to pressure them. They should be keen and reach as much as possible. But the most important thing is they are happy. They lead a very privileged life but they don't get everything they ask for. We always tell them how lucky they are."

Romeo has begun to make a name for himself in the fashion world like his mother, modeling for label Burberry, and while he enjoined the experience, Victoria has no plans to force him back: "I asked if he wanted to do [modeling] and he said, 'Sure, sounds fun.' And he really had a lot of fun. Will he do it again? I don't know. He's more interested in school and sports right now."
