In a recent interview, Victoria Beckham, 41, shrugged of recent murmurs about a split between her and hubby David Beckham, insisting that things are going swimmingly for the two of them. "I have never listened to, or commented on, the rumors about any aspect of my life," said the former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer. After 16 years of matrimony, these false reports about troubles in the Beckham household are almost routine for Posh.

"I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and beautiful, healthy, happy children," she noted. "Yes, we travel a lot with our respective businesses and charitable commitments, but we always make time for each other as a couple and as a family. David and I have nothing to prove. We love each other, look out for each other and are strong as both partners and parents."

 On the subject of kids Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10 and daughter Harper, 4, Posh says they strive to keep the children grounded despite growing up celebrity.

"David and I both have a strong work ethic and I believe that's a good example to set our children," she said. "David and I explain to the children what privileged lives they lead. We tell them that in many places in the world children are hungry, homeless and sick. They all understand how important it is to help others. Romeo ran the children's marathon earlier this year and raised an amazing amount of money through sponsorship, which he divided between David's charity and UNAIDS."

Amidst all that, Victoria also commented that their lives are just as frantic and problem-wrought as ours: "Every mother is rushing around on a Sunday night looking for homework and school uniform, juggling ballet lessons and football practice with work meetings and travel," quipped Posh. "Of course it's hard. But I'm like any working mum, albeit with a bit of extra help."

And help is indeed what she says she gets from David. "My husband constantly inspires me and guides me – he has done so much good work," she says of the retired football superstar and UNICEF ambassador. "I look up to him and have the utmost respect and admiration for all that he has achieved."
