Victoria Beckham rethought Paris move

Victoria Beckham ‘followed her head’ when deciding whether her family should remain in Los Angeles or move to Paris, it has been reported.

David Beckham had looked set to sign for wealthy French football team Paris Saint-Germain, before turning down the opportunity for ‘family reasons’. The Beckhams have been living in LA for five years while David played for LA Galaxy, and have decided that a move to Paris would cause too much unrest for their children.

‘Initially, Victoria was against [the move to Paris], but she really came around to the idea of commuting from London to Paris and by Christmas, was super-excited about it. She was dying to be nearer to her family, friends and fashion headquarters in London, plus she loved the idea of setting up something in Paris – maybe even a shop,’ a source close to the singer-turned-designer reportedly explained.

‘They were both excited about a fresh chapter, coinciding with their new baby girl, but the boys were really upset by the possibility of leaving their school and friends. In the end, after changing their minds constantly over New Year, they agreed they had to follow their heads and not their hearts, so it’s LA for another year at least.’

The couple have had sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, Cruz, six and baby Harper together.
