Victoria Beckham has taken to Twitter to assure fans she is on the mend following reports of a "private medical issue". The singer turned fashion designer is resting at home after receiving medical attention - reportedly for a slipped disk in her back, according to UK's Daily Mirror.
No specific details of the condition have been released, but Victoria insists she is using her recovery to spend time with newly born fourth child Harper Seven, tweeting, "Thank u for your kind messages. I'm feeling much better and enjoying every precious minute with baby Harper, I'm so in love. X". The 37-year-old is still planning to travel to New York next month to showcase her forthcoming Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Her last collection at New York fashion week gained strong reviews and a number of high profile celebrities have been spotted wearing her pieces in recent months. Rumours of a back injury were strengthened after Victoria was photographed walking in flat shoes instead of her signature high heels. A source close to the designer told the Mirror, "The cruel reality is she was suffering with a bad back throughout her pregnancy, and then something untoward happened during the C-section, badly aggravating it".
Husband David Beckham reportedly referred his wife to back specialists and physiotherapists working with his football club Los Angeles Galaxy.
