Victoria Beckham has revealed husband David's surprising passion for beekeeping in a funny video.

The fashion designer, 48, shared a clip to Instagram showing the unaware former footballer, 47, filming the bees he keeps at what appears to be their Cotswolds country home.

In the post, he can be seen – wearing a farmers' flat cap – holding a phone at the entrance to one of several beehives in their back garden.

Commentating on the video, the Spice Girl can be heard saying: "So David is doing a photoshoot of his bees.

"He's trying to get them at the right angle. Make sure it's flattering."

Calling out to her other half, while continuing with her own covert filming, the mother-of-four says: "How do they look?"

The ex-sportsman – who has previously posted about his bee-keeping on Instagram – replied: "Amazing."

Speaking secretly to the camera again, she added: "He's so cute. Literally walking around loving and caring for his little bee friends.

"Taking a selfie with his bees. Squatting for his bees. He's going to get stung in a minute."

Captioning the clip, Beckham jokingly wrote: "Hot stuff looking for his sticky stuff!"

The post, which has been viewed more than 771,000 times, has received hundreds of comments.

Their son Romeo, 19, left a series of crying laughing face emojis, while another social media user likened her to David Attenborough.

One fan also wrote: "Not sure what’s cuter, him and his bee fascination or your adorable commentary!!"
