Victoria Beckham is not able to pick up her newborn daughter as she has slipped a disc.
Mrs Beckham sustained the injury while pregnant with Harper and David Beckham has even had to hold the baby while she breast feeds as she is in so much pain.
A source said: “She was suffering with a bad back throughout her pregnancy, and then something untoward happened in the C-section, badly aggravating it. She has had an X-ray which showed she has slipped a disc in her lower back. Victoria is in a lot of pain and even struggling to hold Harper. When she goes to breastfeed, David has to basically prop-up the baby.”
The fashion designer is hoping that her and her daughter will still bond despite not being able to play with her like she did with Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
A source told the Daily Mirror: “She is really down about the whole thing as she just wants to be able to play with her daughter like any new mum.
“But Victoria is trying to remain upbeat because she really does feel so blessed with the birth of her beautiful daughter. She is determined not to let this injury overshadow the happiness surrounding Harper’s arrival.”
On his part David Beckham said: “It’s so important that they have that mother/daughter bond and breastfeed, I think, is really an incredible thing.
“We’re in the process of putting it in bottles now, so that means I get to feed her – which has been amazing.”
