Victoria Beckham's pet pregnancy craving

Some crave toothpaste, others spicy food and still more prefer chocolate...

There's just no telling what a woman will desire when she's pregnant, as Victoria Beckham recently testified.

The mother-of-four, who gave birth to daughter Harper in July, said it was not food that motivated her while pregnant - rather, she became obsessed with the need for a pet.

"When I was pregnant, I just wanted to get lots and lots of animals, for some reason," the 37-year-old told Elle magazine. "We talked about cats, but David said absolutely not."

Victoria said she did manage to get David to agree to a new dog, Scarlett, during the pregnancy and also worked hard to regain her figure after giving birth earlier this year.

“Oh, listen, I worked at it," the designer, who is also mother to Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz, said. "I was breast-feeding, so I ate super healthy, and I worked out seven days a week. I wanted to burn all my leggings — I was adamant that by the time I went to fashion week I would be able to wear clothes."

Victoria was in London at the end of last month to pick up the designer brand gong at the British Fashion Awards - the first time she has been officially recognised by the British fashion industry.

"Sorry, I'm being so rubbish," the former Spice Girl told the audience several times, as she welled up with emotion after accepting the award from her close friend Marc Jacobs.
