Fury: David and Victoria Beckham have been left furious after a Christmas card they sent to journalists, showing their four children half-naked in bed, was leaked online
A picture of the card was first posted on Twitter yesterday by Senior Fashion News Director of Teen Vogue magazine, Jane Keltner De Valle, who accompanied it with the caption: “Cutest thing about @victoriabeckham”s xmas card Photo cred on back that reads “Picture by Daddy”.”
It was then picked up by Australian gossip website Popsugar, who ran it alongside a selection of other celebrity Christmas cards.

Shewrote: “I should point out, the Christmas card from the Beckhams is NOTfor publication. It was private. My bad. Sorry, got swept up in adorableness.”
The picture was also then picked up by celebrity snapper Darryn Lyons” company Mr Paparazzi.
However, it really should come as no surprise to one of the world”s most famous celebrity couples, that a Christmas card distributed to journalists, would end up being leaked.
Both of the Beckhams are users of social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook and post regular updates to their fans.
However, on this occasion, it seems the composition of the intimate shot – proudly taken by father David – which shows his sons and a giggling Harper without their tops, has caused the pair to take such an unusually guarded stance.
David and Victoria arrived in England from Los Angeles last week to spend Christmas with their families.
Victoria was spotted clutching a baby bottle as the family made their way home from Heathrow Airport after the long flight.
Thepair are thought to have chosen to spend the festive holiday with theirbrood at their Hertfordshire home, dubbed Beckingham Palace by fans.
OnMonday night David took sons Brooklyn and Romeo to the Military Awards at the Imperial War Museum while Victoria stayed at home with little Harper.
