Victoria Beckham is a fashion icon, one-fifth of the most iconic girlband in the world, wife to a footballing legend - and a fantastic mother to her four children. She regularly posts photos of her sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, as well as adorable snaps with her daughter, Harper.

And whilst Victoria tends to keep a dignified silence on her personal life, she has now opened up about parenting her daughter after having three boys.

Speaking to Metro, Victoria revealed that she has been giving her daughter encouragement to do whatever she wants with her life, so that Harper feels confident enough to follow her dreams.

She said, "Every day when Harper goes to school, she walks up the school stairs and I give her a kiss. I say, 'Harper, you’re a girl, you can achieve anything. You can do anything that you want to do.'"

She continued, "That’s my message to her constantly. She knows she can do everything and probably more than her brothers can. We talk about it a lot," before adding that Harper already has an idea of what she'd like to be when she grows up.

"She wants to be an inventor and she’s very proud of that," Victoria explained. "She’s a strong smart woman — little woman."

How cute!

Victoria added that she wants to keep her Spice Girls girl power alive, saying, "I am still banging on that drum and I am not going to stop. I don’t think any of us want to stop. It’s a very important time for women right now."

The mum-of-four shared a photo on Father's Day (17th June) of a super-cute letter Harper had written for David - and may we say what beautiful handwriting she has!
