Victoria Beckham has hit back at criticism of her appearance last week, pointing out that she is a working mother with a seven-month-old baby.
The mother-of-four hit back at comments that she looked tired when she launched her new fashion collections in New York and London last week.
Victoria told The Sunday Mirror: "Look, if people want to say I'm miserable then so be it. I'm really not. 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.
"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 too 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. I'm spending ludicrous amounts of time in my dressing gown on Skype talking to my team about the clothes."
The 37-year-old designer - who has now returned home to Los Angeles - also confirmed the Spice Girls will definitely not be reuniting for the Diamond Jubilee.
She said: "It was so flattering to be asked to do the Jubilee, but we have lots on our plates and we are all so focused on the end of the year and Viva Forever, the musical.
"The Jubilee isn't going to happen. But the musical is going to be really great and we're focusing on that."
