I've never read a book says Posh
Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham's autobiography was published in 2001
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has admitted she has never read a book in her life - despite having apparently written her own 528-page autobiography.

The 31-year-old wife of England captain David Beckham told a Spanish magazine she does not have time to read.

The singer, who has three sons, also revealed to Chic magazine she was keen to have a daughter.

And she said she did not get jealous when other women paid attention to her famous husband.

She told the magazine: "I know what other women think and I say to myself 'He is very good looking, he dresses very well, he is great with children and he has an enormous heart'.

"I am not jealous and when people look at him, I think it's because he's great."

In the article, she said she would rather listen to music than read - although she admitted to "loving" fashion magazines.

Mrs Beckham, who is already mother to three sons - Brooklyn, 6, Romeo, 2, and six-month-old Cruz - said she wanted a daughter.

She said she could imagine "painting her nails, putting on make-up and choosing clothes" with her.

The interview will appear in next month's edition of Chic magazine but has been leaked to Spanish newspapers.

Mrs Beckham's autobiography, Learning to Fly, was published in 2001.
