Victoria Beckham has bizarre collection of her children's baby teeth stashed away

 Victoria Beckham collects her children's baby teeth

Victoria Beckham has collections of upmarket handbags, one of a kind garments and limited-edition footwear.

And now the mother-of-four, 47, has shared another thing she likes to collect - her children's baby teeth.

The wife of David Beckham - who shares sons Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and daughter Harper with the former footballer - revealed her unusual fondness of keeping hold of her offspring's first teeth on her Instagram Story on Saturday.

Popstar turned fashion designer Victoria explained that she has a habit of scooping up her brood's milk teeth when they come loose and hiding them away as special keepsakes.

The Spice Girls hitmaker revealed the quirky trait as her youngest child, Harper, nine, suffered from a tooth falling out and left it out in hopes that the tooth fairy would take the small gnasher and leave her some pocket money.

After sharing a video of the set-up left for Harper by the tooth fairy, Victoria typed: "Yet another tooth for my collection...does anyone else have this?"

Proving that the star suspects her tooth collection is unconventional, she added a string of crying with laughter emoji's before asking her fans: "what do you do with your kid's teeth?"

Victoria must have quite a large collection of teeth stashed away seeing as her sons - Brooklyn, 22, Romeo, 18, and 16-year-old Cruz - would have lost their baby teeth many years ago.

According to the NHS website, by the age of 12 to 14, most children have lost all their baby teeth and have their adult teeth.

Most children have a full set of 20 milk or baby teeth that can start to fall out from the age of five or six.

Victoria and David are very family orientated and have made sure their kids understand the importance of manners.

David explained in 2013: "We try to lead by example, by showing them it's important to work hard."

Speaking to Huffington Post U.K , he added: "That's one of the key things me and my wife have always done, [both] before we had children, and now [that] we have four children."

Back in 2015, the elegant beauty Victoria shared that she and her husband strive to ensure their children are grateful for their privileged life.

Opening up to Grazia, she said: “David and I explain to the children what privileged lives they lead. We tell them that in many places in the world children are hungry, homeless and sick.

"They all understand how important it is to help others. Romeo ran the children’s marathon earlier this year and raised an amazing amount of money through sponsorship, which he divided between David’s charity and UNAIDS.”
