London: Singer-turned-fashion designer 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; a website 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.
