Happy birthday to Victoria Beckham! The former Spice Girl (and rumored performer at the upcoming royal wedding) celebrated her 44th birthday on April 18th with a beautiful family get together… and a “cake” that looked way too healthy.

To be honest, we’re being incredibly generous by calling that unconventional dessert a cake at all. The Beckhams are famously health-conscious and we respect them for it, but if one can’t have a cheat day on their birthday, when can they?

The cake was actually watermelon cut in the shape of a cake (creative, we’ll give them that!) topped with strawberries, blueberries and a white candle. Healthy and low-carb for sure, but oddly depressing.

Would we expect anything else from the woman who once said her treadmill was her “happy place?” My happy place is the local happy hour. And my cake is absolutely 80% chocolate.

Social media is beside themselves as well.

Victoria, you can have any cake you want for your birthday, we just hope it was a happy one!
