Victoria Beckham has opened up on married life with David Beckham for the first time since the superstar pair were forced to slam rumours that they were divorcing after 19 years.
A representative for the couple shot down claims of a split, telling The Sun: “There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news.”
“This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time,” before adding: “It’s a crock of s**t.”

Now she has spoken out about life with her husband for the first time since the hearsay.
“I’m so lucky that I have the support of an incredible husband,” she gushed at the Forbes Women’s summit in New York.
“He has always encouraged me to follow my dreams and passion. If it wasn’t for him supporting me, at home as well, it would be very difficult.

“We are equal in everything we do at home with the children. He makes it possible.”
Revealing more about what David is like behind closed doors, she continued: “He’s at home making the school run, cooking the dinner, doing the homework with the kids.
“He’s the most fantastic husband and dad. When I’m home, I do that as well. It’s about being partners.”
The former Spice Girl did, however, confess that she sometimes struggles with being a mother and wife with her career.
“Like most women, I beat myself up. I’m trying most importantly to be the best mum that I can. But I’m also trying to be the best wife and the best professional. It is a juggling act and it’s not easy.”
“I have to remind myself when I come home, ‘Put the phone down. It’s OK to not answer emails until the morning. Spend quality time with your children and David.’ It’s really about getting that balance and just constantly checking in with yourself,” she added.
