Nicola Peltz breaks silence on skipping Victoria Beckham's 50th birthday

Victoria Beckham's daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz, has explained why she wasn't in attendance at the former Spice Girl's 50th birthday bash.

The 29 year old shared a photo of David and Victoria Beckham posing with their children before the A-list party, as she broke her silence on why she couldn’t make it. The wife of Brooklyn Beckham revealed that she had opted to spend time with her elderly grandmother instead.

The actress took to her Instagram Stories as she wrote: "Happy birthday to my beautiful mil @victoriabeckham I'm so sad I'm not there to celebrate you and hug you! Sending all my love from me and my naunni [white love heart emoji] I miss you all so much!"

Nicola’s beloved grandmother, Gina, who she calls "naunni," was her Maid of Honour when she married Brooklyn in 2022.
