Victoria Beckham: Not crabby, just tired

Victoria Beckham is exhausted

Victoria Beckham looked especially glum at New York Fashion Week despite her collection being well-received by critics -- but the mother of four said she's just ridiculously tired.

Victoria Beckham has a life most women would envy: a gorgeous, wealthy husband, wild success at not just one but two totally unrelated careers, a jet-set lifestyle and beautiful kids. So why does she look so crabby all the time?

It's not ingratitude, the designer told the Sunday Mirror. She's just plain exhausted.

"Look, if people want to say I'm miserable, then so be it. I'm really not," Beckham told the Mirror. "I have a lot on my plate."

"I'm not going to lie about it: I'm tired. I'm really tired -- but I'm also very happy with my life. I'm basically just like any woman who's working and has lots of children. It's tough."

Between her family, a new baby and her work responsibilities, Posh Spice basically isn't catching any zzzs.

"I'm not getting much sleep at all," she said. "Harper's not sleeping that great, and I've been taking Skype business calls throughout the night because of the collections."

"I'm up with the baby as all mums are, and I wouldn't have it any other way. There's not a team of people doing it for me," she said.

That's a story to which all moms can relate. So, next time you see a grouchy-looking lady with a baby, cut her a little slack. You got more sleep last night than she has all week.
