Victoria Beckham Suffers Slipped Disc

Poor Posh. New mom Victoria Beckham has been at home healing after recently suffering a slipped disc. Posh stepped outside for the first time yesterday since the accident.

She was seen in flats, which if you care even the slightest about entertainment news you'll know this is a BIG DEAL. Victoria Beckham wore stilettos right up until they stuck her feet into the stir-ups.

So Posh stepped out with no make-up, her hair undone, and flat shoes and was photographed for the first time since giving birth in July. The slipped disc left Victoria in so much pain she could barely lift six-week old daughter Harper Seven.

Unsure when or why the accident occurred, it's speculated that Victoria may have caused the slipped disc because she insisted on wearing high heels during the pregnancy. Wearing heels while pregnant puts excessive strain on the spine. And then the birth of Harper Seven was delivered via Caesarean, which is though to have placed even further pressure on her back.

On Friday Victoria Tweeted, "Thank u for your kind messages. I'm feeling much better and enjoying every precious minute with baby Harper, I'm so in love. X VB."

Thankfully for Posh, her hubby David Beckham is very hands-on and has taken care of the kids while she's been healing. Luckily for them, they rent a Malibu beach home that used to belong to Steven Spielberg for about $150,000 a month.

A source close to the Beckhams says her herniated disc has "nothing to do with" her Caesarean section. She cannot walk far, bend over or lift heavy objects.

"She is seeing various specialists to help ease the pain and help increase mobility. She's definitely on the mend it's just a slow process - so no walking, no bending or picking up heavy objects. She also has to have lots of rest," says the source.

Posh's spokesperson also just confirmed, "Victoria has a back condition. She is resting and receiving treatment."

In other Posh Spice news, hopefully she heals soon as she's expected to showcase her Spring/Summer 2012 collection in New York for fashion week next month. While this may not be the best time for fashion week, Victoria is reportedly shedding all her post-baby weight to be super skinny again for the show.

She's reportedly on the "five hands" diet, which basically means she can have just five handfuls of food a day. "Five days after giving birth, she started eating five high-protein meals a day accompanied by green vegetables, drinking gallons of water, and only snacking on goji berries and nuts," says a source. Uhhh that's what I used to feed my hamster.

While this diet plan probably isn't the best idea for someone recovering from a herniated disc, Posh's celebrity status truly is based on being slim and fashionable and posh. It aint easy being beautiful.
