    She may be a high-flying fashion designer now, but as you know, Victoria Beckham was once a member of one of the biggest girl power groups of all time, the Spice Girls.

    If you were a child in the nineties, then chances are you owned one of the Spice Girl dolls – most likely your favourite one, or more if you were lucky. If you always dreamed of owning the whole set, look away now if you don’t want to feel insanely jealous.

    Naturally, young Harper Beckham has the whole set; Baby, Ginger, Sporty, Scary and, of course, Posh. But it’s not until now that she discovered her mum was once a member of one of the most iconic girl bands of all time.

    VB revealed pictures of her daughter playing with the retro dolls on Instagram stories over the weekend. She then captioned the second image ‘when you find out mummy was a pop star,’ suggesting it was the first time she had told her daughter about her pop past.

    Can you imagine playing with your dolls and finding out one of them is modelled on your mum? It would make your childhood. Not a bad belated sixth birthday present, we say.
