Victoria Beckham is remembering a difficult moment after she welcomed her first baby.

While speaking to Grazia, the fashion designer and mom of four, 50, recalled how she used to let what the media printed about her affect how she felt, pointing to a time photos of her were used after her first outing with son Brooklyn, now 25.

"I've had so much said about me and I'm sure that has robbed me of some experiences. I never want to look like I'm complaining, but there were times in my past that I haven't felt confident enough to sit on a bench and watch my children play," she told the outlet.

"I remember after I had Brooklyn, the first outing was on the front page of the newspaper, with arrows pointing to where I needed to lose weight," Beckham continued.

"Those things can affect how you feel and conduct yourself in public. Now, if paparazzi want to take a picture and say something — too bad, it doesn't bother me in the same way."

Victoria shares her four kids — Brooklyn, 25, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 19, and Harper, 12 — with husband David Beckham, 49.

In an interview with The Sunday Times in April, Victoria described her hands-on parenting style, which includes mother-daughter girls' nights now that her daughter Harper is her only child still living at home.

Speaking about a trip she and her daughter had taken to Waitrose, an English supermarket, to buy a specific snack Harper wanted, Victoria shared that she and David make sure they also do everyday parenting chores.

“I’ve never not done those things, neither has David. They are important," the mom of four said of those tasks.

But when her former soccer player husband is away, Victoria and her daughter make sure to have glam nights.

“We do them when David is away,” she said, before revealing, “Tonight it’s fake tan.”

In March, Victoria and David both shared sweet tributes to their oldest son as they celebrated his 25th birthday. Sharing a photo of herself, David and Brooklyn, the fashion designer honored Brooklyn in her caption.

"Today we celebrate Brooklyn turning 25!!! David I love you so much and I’m so proud of the parents we are. We are a good team!!!! Happy birthday," the proud mom wrote.

On his Instagram, David, 49, posted a throwback video of himself and son Brooklyn from when he was a baby. Posing on a soccer field, a younger David holds his son, who wears a matching Beckham jersey and a medal.

"Happy 25th Birthday to my big boy , so proud of the man you have grown into , and you have always kept the same values you grew up with being polite and kind 🩷 we love you so much bust have the most amazing day ❤️," David wrote in the caption.
