Victoria, 31, used to enjoy smoking cigarettes, but her hubby England football captain David has never been a fan of smoking and eventually persuaded her to give up.

Within weeks of the birth in Spain, Victoria was showing of a super-flat tummy and skinny legs - and was back down to a Size six again. A source revealed: 'Victoria has always liked the odd puff, but David was never a fan so cigars are a compromise.' Victoria developed a 10-a-day cigarette habit after giving birth to her first son Brooklyn in 1999. At the time, medical experts were concerned she had taken up the habit in a bid to control her weight. She kept her puffing under wraps for fear of influencing the Spice Girls' young fans, smoking only in the back of her chauffeur-driven car or away from the public eye", Sunday Mirror (UK), Apr. 24, '05
