London: Victoria Beckham, who recently gave birth to her fourth child Harper Seven, is now unable to hold her baby daughter because she has slipped a disc in her back.

The 37-year-old suffered the injury while she was pregnant with Harper.

"She was suffering with a bad back throughout her pregnancy, and then something untoward happened in the C-section, badly aggravating it. She has had an X-ray which showed she has slipped a disc in her lower back," contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.

"Victoria is in a lot of pain and even struggling to hold Harper. When she goes to breastfeed, David has to basically prop-up the baby," the source added.
