Victoria at Home

Recently, Victoria’s had to deal with prowlers. While David was out with the children at an LA Galaxy soccer match, she had to be protected by bodyguards as a prowler hid in the bushes of David and Victoria Beckham’s family home. Fortunately, nobody was harmed.

And in a show of support to David, she rushed home from Japan when her father-in-law suffered a heart attack. Just goes to show that even celebrities have to face everyday issues like crime and illness.
