- Victoria Beckham smiled in a picture with her youngest son, Cruz, on Instagram.
- David Beckham made a harmless joke about Victoria smiling in a photo for once.
Perhaps one of the coolest things about Victoria Beckham—you know, besides the fact that she’s married to David Beckham, literally the hottest soccer player on planet Earth—is the fact that she rarely ever smiles. It’s been part of Victoria’s ~image~ forever, even in her Posh Spice days! But now, Victoria’s son Cruz is telling the world that, yes, on occasion, his mom has the ability to flash her pearly whites. And like a true husband who loves cracking jokes, David’s making fun of Victoria for smiling on Instagram.
“Apparently my mum does smile 😃❤️,” Cruz captioned his post, which his mama hit the Like button on.

In the comments, David jokingly wrote, “How white are mum’s @VictoriaBeckham teeth? 🦷 It’s Ross from Friends 😂.” Victoria has yet to respond or Like the comment, and TBH, I wouldn’t expect her to anytime soon.
And if that lil Friends reference went right over your head, David’s talking about the one where Ross decided to get his teeth whitened.
In case you’re wondering why Victoria is usually reluctant to smile, she actually revealed it isn’t simply to look cool—it’s more of a self-confidence issue. “I want to be honest,” she said in an interview with Glamour UK last year. “In the past, I’ve probably hidden behind my armor—the not smiling publicly, for instance. There’s less of that now.”
“There’s something really liberating about embracing who I am at 45 years old and owning it, feeling confident, feeling content,” she added. “Doing beauty has really helped with that—it’s been very liberating. I want to spread the word that everybody should feel like the best version of themselves. To look after what you have. I want to tell people to own who you are. Yes, we—and I—have wrinkles, and that’s okay!”
Glad to hear Posh feels more confident these days!
