Victoria previously opened up about her family's New Year's Eve plans, and admitted her children were "party animals." She told Vogue: "I love New Year’s Eve. We always spend New Year’s Eve with the children, and my kids know how to party. Last year, I mean goodness they stayed up so late, they really are party animals. It’s a good time to get a little bit dressed up and let your hair down, have some fun and just go for it."
