As she turns 40 it looks like Victoria Beckham is embracing social media, as the fashion designer has posted several intimate birthday snaps on her Twitter account.

"Thank u to my wonderful family and friends for making my birthday so special.I love u all so much", the 40-year-old tweeted showing herself blowing out her birthday candles in the accompanying picture.

Another shot showed Victoria and her fellow ex-Spice Girl Emma Bunton dancing with the caption: "So much fun with Emma and Mel C at my party last night x vb"

In another Victoria showed her love for her family, with a picture of her parents, sister Louise and brother Christian, and text which read: "Great night with my beautiful family. I love you all so much."

Victoria celebrated her birthday on the 17 April in California with her husband David and four children, taking them on a day trip to the Grand Canyon before having a family meal at Nobu Malibu.

Throughout the day Victoria included her social media fans, regularly tweeting and updating her Facebook page throughout the day.


"Good morning LA, it's my birthday!!!! x vb", she tweeted on the morning, before sharing a shot of her and husband David lounging on a chair.

She then brought her birthday celebrations to this side of the Pond, throwing a party at London's Arts Club.

The party was attended by former Spice Girls bandmates Melanie Chrisholm, 40, Geri Halliwell, 41, Emma Bunton, 38, and her fiancé Jade Jones, as well as Victoria and David's close friends Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana Ramsay, and the newly-single Coldplay star Chris Martin.

Madonna's ex-husband Guy Ritchie and his heavily pregnant fiancée Jacqui Ainsley also made an appearance at the swanky Notting Hill venue, when Jacqui showed off her burgeoning baby bump in a fitted black lace Amelia Dress by British maternity designer Tiffany Rose.
The birthday girl wore an all-black ensemble, a pair of black heels and a black coat over her shoulders for her party, which appears to have been a huge success, judging by the fits of giggles that came over the former Spice Girls as they made their way out at the end of the evening.

Emma and Melanie C were seen laughing hysterically as they sat in a car when the celebration had come to an end at around 2am.

The pair had both opted for monochrome outfits for the evening, Melanie going for a black and white minidress and Emma opting for a stylish black trouser suit with white detail.
