The Spice Girl – who has been given a catwalk strut instead of her own solo singing spot during the band’s reunion tour – has defended her vocal ability.

Victoria said: ‘I’m no Mariah Carey, but I can sing. It became very obvious from the start that I was never going to be the best singer or the best dancer or the best actress. I was never a ‘natural’.

‘You know, I’ve never been that good at anything, to be completely honest.’

The 33-year-old mother – who has three sons, eight-year-old Brooklyn, five-year-old Romeo and two-year-old Cruz with husband David Beckham – revealed she agreed to the Spice Girls reunion because she wanted her sons to see her as a star.

She said: ‘I wanted my children to see that Mummy was a pop star. It was the last opportunity for them to stand in a crowd full of people screaming for the Spice Girls.’

Victoria also revealed the family’s move to Los Angeles – when soccer star David was signed to LA Galaxy – has made her children happier.

She added to Elle magazine: ‘Going to school here, the kids are much happier. Their confidence level has gone through the roof. I’m very proud to be British, but here it’s a lot more relaxed. It’s the happiest as a family
that we’ve ever been. I just love America.’
