Victoria Beckham craved animals when she was pregnant.
The fashion designer - who gave birth to daughter Harper in July - admits she became obsessed with wanting lots of pets but couldn't persuade husband David to let her get a cat.
Victoria - who also has three sons, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz, with the soccer star - said: "When I was pregnant, I just wanted to get lots and lots of animals, for some reason. We talked about cats, but David said absolutely not."
The 37-year-old star - who did manage to get David to agree to a new dog, Scarlett, during the pregnancy - also revealed she worked very hard to regain her figure following the birth of her much-longed for girl.
Victoria - who showcased her latest fashion collection at New York Fashion Week, just three months after Harper was born - told Britain's Elle magazine: "Oh, listen, I worked at it. 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."
