LONDON, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- In an interview with Grazia magazine, Victoria Beckham says her marriage to soccer star David Beckham is going strong, despite rumors of them splitting.
"I have never listened to, or commented on, the rumors about any aspect of my life," the English businesswoman and designer, 41, said. The former Spice Girl says that despite her and David's regular business and charity trips, they make time to be together as a couple and as a family.
"[I am] blessed to have a wonderful husband and beautiful, healthy, happy children," said the former crooner.
The couple, who is now back in London, have been married for 16 years and share four kids, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, as well as Cruz and Harper, 10. Harper recently started school and Brooklyn is off to art college.
Beckham says her husband "inspires" and "guides" her, adding that they both have a strong work ethic, because they pride themselves on setting a positive example for their children. She also says the children are aware of the "privileged lives they lead," noting that Romeo recently organized a children's marathon and split funds from sponsorship between David's charity and UNAIDS.
David, 40, agreed with Victoria's comments in a recent interview, where he said that after being together for 18 years -- 16 married -- they "trust each other's judgment." David recently took a boys' trip to Dubai and posted a picture of his adventures on Instagram, saying he missed his "beautiful wife and unbelievable children."
