That Moment When Harper Beckham Learned Her Mom Was a Spice Girl
After six years of existing on this earth, David and Victoria Beckham's daughter, Harper, just learned her mother was a former member of the Spice Girls.
It all began this weekend when Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) took us on a trip down memory lane via Instagram, natch. Beckham shared several snaps of her mint-condition Spice Girls Barbie-like figurines wearing their respective quintessential outfits and toting tiny plastic microphones. Beckham captioned the first post, “Harper loves her Spice Girls dolls!”
The pop star cum fashion designer then shared a photo of her adorable six-year-old daughter ogling the group of dolls in awe. But wait, because this happened...
“When [you] find out mummy was a pop star!!! Xxx,” she wrote. Wait, WHAT? How is it possible that Harper had no idea her mother was a member of the Spice Girls nor that she was the one and only Posh Spice? At least she's aware of her father's famous roots... (How else could he have hooked up her epic sixth birthday party at Buckingham Palace?)
As we Harper moved past the initial shock and wonder of seeing her mother's likeness on the face of a doll, she singled out her two favorite Spice Girls and commenced playing. Naturally, she went with her mother (duh) and her blonde-haired, girl-power bandmate, Baby Spice.
Now it's time to sit her down and introduce her to one of the finest films to emerge from 1997, Spice World. (Ya know, along with Titanic, Life Is Beautiful and Amistad.) Spice up your life, Harper.
