Victoria left Spice Girls reunion early for daughter

London: Singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham left the Spice Girls reunion early because she wanted to put her baby daughter Harper to bed.

Beckham, 38, was in London yesterday with the rest of her bandmates Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Chisholm to launch the new musical `Viva Forever` inspired by the former band`s pop journey, reported Contactmusic.

"I`d love to stay and hang out with the girls but I`m desperate to see her before she goes to bed. I have to race home for bedtime," Victoria said.

`Viva Forever` is a musical written and produced by Jennifer Saunders and Judy Craymer, based on the songs of the Spice Girls and Victoria hopes it will become a worldwide smash. It will be open at London`s Piccadilly Theatre.

"London is a great starting point. We`re all so proud to be British. We`re hopeful this will be the start of something big."
