Victoria Beckham may be an A-list star, but she has revealed she doesn't have many friends.
The singer turned fashion-designer, 43, said aside from her family she prefers to surround herself with a small group of people she “genuinely” likes to socialise with.
“I’m very close to my sister [Louise] and a friend I went to school with, and then three or four others,” she told ELLE. “I think a true friend understands that you can’t see them as much as you might want, because they’re busy as well.
“Everyone I’m friends with has a career and a family.
“I never, ever feel lonely. I don’t have a lot of friends but I’m surrounded by people I genuinely like to be with.”
But she said there are perks to travelling, such as getting to relax in a hotel bath without interruption.
She said: “I don’t travel much because I don’t want to be away from the children and I need to be in the studio. But if I am away, I tend to take that time for a bit of ‘self care’ and I enjoy being able to sleep because no one is waking me up in the middle of the night. So I never get lonely.
“It’s quite nice, when you’re a working mum, to have a night in a hotel… It sounds silly, but when was the last time I lay in a bath? Everything’s always so quick, quick, quick.”
Beckham celebrated her 43rd birthday on Monday, and was greeted by a crowd of singing paparazzi as she made her way through Los Angeles International Airport.
The mother-of-four also shared a video of her daughter Harper singing Happy Birthday to her before blowing a kiss to the camera.
Beckham captioned the cute clip: “I love u.”
