Big things to come from Becks

Victoria Beckham has joked her two-year-old daughter "definitely" has strong opinions about fashion.

Although the soccer star announced his retirement from the sport earlier this year, he clearly has no plans to slow down. Victoria admires her spouse's limitless career drive.

"Actually, David is busier than ever. He's obviously incredibly talented on the football pitch but he also has an incredible business mind as well," she told the latest issue of British magazine Grazia. "There will be lots of exciting things from him. He's incredibly ambitious."

David sat front row for Victoria's recent show at New York Fashion Week, and even grabbed the spotlight himself at the London shows by wearing leather as he was unveiled as the new face of Belstaff on Sunday.

Last night David played it far safer in a black suit and white shirt as he attended the Global Fund and British Council Party with Victoria in London. At the glitzy event he showed off a new accessory - a tattoo reading Victoria on his right hand.

The fashion designer recently revealed she splashed out on a tattoo voucher for David's 38th birthday earlier this year.

David watched Victoria's latest show with the couple's two-year-old daughter Harper. While the toddler is showing some signs of following in her mother's fashionable footsteps, she has also inherited her father's passion for sport.

"Harper definitely has a point of view," Victoria laughed. "If I'm going out for the night and I come downstairs, she'll say, 'Ooh, nice dress mummy' or 'nice handbag mummy.' She's very girlie, but at the same time she loves to run about in football boots and a football shirt."

The Beckhams returned to the UK earlier this year after David left US soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy. While it has been claimed Victoria is missing her life in LA, the star insists she is happy to be home.

"I love the American dream and I love living there. But I love London and I'm very patriotic and proud to be British," she smiled. "The kids go to fantastic schools there, both our families are there. All these rumours about us going back to the States are nothing more than rumours."

The 39-year-old brunette also spoke about juggling her responsibilities raising four children with running a successful fashion empire. Victoria admits it can be tricky to strike the right balance at times.

"A juggling act - one that's always going to make you feel guilty," she said. "I do find it difficult, but all working mums do. My family is my priority but I love my job...

"I do have sleepless nights... We do work incredibly hard but this is fashion week - everyone is working long, long hours. I don't want to look like I'm moaning about it."
