Sounds like at least two of Victoria Beckham‘s kids “Wannabe” like their mom!

On Monday, the fashion designer sat down with Seth Meyers to talk about how her daughter and youngest son seem to take after her in a couple of key skill areas.

“She’s a little tomboy, playing in the garden with her brothers, playing football — and [husband David Beckham] as well,” the mom of four, 42, shared of her youngest child and only daughter Harper Seven, 5.

“She’s also very girly, so she loves to play with makeup,” adds Beckham, who herself has been busy taking part in New York Fashion Week and whose own limited edition Estée Lauder makeup line launched Tuesday in N.Y.C.

“She has been able to run in a pair of high heels for a long time. So proud. So proud.”

After Meyers jokes that he isn’t sure when being able to run in high heels would come in handy aside from in a horror movie, he asks about Beckham’s 11-year-old son Cruz David — specifically, whether he has inherited his mother’s musical prowess.

“He’s so musical, Cruz, and we didn’t even realize he could sing, you know? He’s always the one that plays football,” Beckham says after Meyers shows a clip of her son performing “the cup song” from Pitch Perfect. 

“And he was just singing in the back of the car one day and I was like, ‘Wow, you can really sing,’ ” she adds. “And then he picked up his cups and off he went.”

Super cute Cruz!! @davidbeckham @brooklynbeckham #proudmummy X vb

“We are like a traveling circus, our family,” Beckham jokes. “We sing, we dance, we do football, we do fashion.”

All of her kids are aware of her past involvement with the Spice Girls, and Beckham outlines to Meyers what exactly that means to them.

“They know that Mommy wore the heels, and did the pout and point,” she says, throwing up the famous girl-power peace sign. “They’re proud, you know, we’ve watched the movie together, and when I was on tour with the Spice Girls, I took the children with me. So they know it.”

Why is she proud that her daughter can run in high heels?

Wait, running in high heels (she’s 5) for a long time????
SO she is trying to destroy her daughters feet? NO way should a toddler be wearing, much less running, in high heels. She is not very smart is she??
How about bragging about something worthwhile, like she knows how to read or write her name!!!

Carolyn and Sally, I think she was being a bit facetious and playful with that comment.

Carolyn and Sally, from what I can tell in the video, she’s just being a bit facetious with that comment. She seems to be making a joke.

This little girl will need back surgery and have bad hips and knees by the time she is 20.

The Beckhams seem to be doing a great job with their children, and all of them seem to act like decent people, dress decently, and no one has a negative thing to say about them that I have ever seen. Victoria made a joke, and you uptight critical vultures need to get a sense of humor so you understand that. Sheesh….you must all be fun to be around….. SMH!

I think all little kids can run in heels. Their feet are a lot smaller and thier heels don’t get elevated much. My daughter loves to put mine on and run. Some people need to lighten up.

Proud because she can run in heels? My daughter started a club to help seniors in the community when she was 9. That is something to be proud of. Running in heels is useless.

She’s a vacuous talentless airhead
