In a story we’ve had to read a few times because it’s so unlikely-sounding (while also checking the date to absolutely make sure it’s not April Fool’s Day), apparently Victoria Beckham has bought a pet pig. Yes, the woman who doesn’t “do” casual, and who’s so impeccably groomed at all times we imagine her kids are terrified of getting a sticky hand on her skirt, has given a miniature pig as a present to hubby David. Mm-hmmm.
According to London’s Evening Standard, VB has purchased two nine-inch tall “micro pigs” which are currently taking up residence at their Hertfordshire mansion. “She has already reportedly nicknamed the miniature pot-bellied Gloucester Old Spot cross-breeds Elton and David, after good friends Elton John and his partner David Furnish,” it claims.
We swear we are not making this up. But until we see Posh out walking her new muddy friends, we’ll file this under “oh, really?” But wouldn’t it be great if it was true? [Photo: FilmMagic]
