Victoria Beckham claims she is a ‘self-diagnosed dyslexic’ and says her children also struggle

Victoria Beckham has admitted she is a 'self-diagnosed dyslexic' and hinted her children also had the learning difficulty, which can cause problems with reading, writing and spelling.

Victoria Beckham has described herself as a self-diagnosed dyslexic

Mrs Beckham said none of her four children was especially academic, adding that 'dyslexia doesn't run in our family, it gallops'.

Brooklyn, 20, is an aspiring photographer, Romeo, 16, wants to be a tennis player, Cruz, 14, is a singer and dancer while Harper, seven, is a 'real little tomboy'.

The 44-year-old former Spice Girl told the Financial Times that her sons all felt pressure to follow in the footsteps of their footballing father David Beckham.

'All three boys used to have contracts with Arsenal,' she said. 

'Brooklyn was the first to say he didn't want to play any more. 

'And then Romeo decided he didn't want to do it either. 

'I remember Romeo sitting in the bath getting really upset saying, 'I don't want to let Daddy down'.' 

The former Spice Girl also revealed in an interview with The Financial Times, at fashionable Japanese restaurant Nobu, that while she loves everything her husband of 20 year wears, he isn't as keen on her fashion - despite her running an international fashion brand.

She said: 'Someone asked if I like how David dressed. And I said: 'I think you look great in everything.' Because he does. And then I asked him: 'Do you like the way that I dress?'

'And here's where I'm thinking: I've got this. I'm married to David Beckham, but of course he's going to like how I dress. And then he said: 'Well, now you mention it, why do you wear those jumpers with those big sleeves? And why do you wear such baggy trousers?' she laughs. 'Mr Beckham didn't like it.'

Mrs Beckham said her four children are not the most academic and prefer artistic pursuits

Talking about how she stays so trim, Miss Beckham admitted that on a daily basis she does 'about 7.5km [on an incline] on the treadmill, and then my trainer comes.'

She added: 'I am quite aware that I'm really very disciplined. And it does start to make me sound very strange. But, it's just the way that I am. 

'And, also, [working out] is one of the only things that I do for me. I go to work, and I come home and I'm with the kids. So it's just my thing.'
