Pregnant celebrities can avoid onset of bunions, hammer toes

Victoria and David Beckham not revealing gender of fourth child

Victoria Beckman pregnant with fourth childPosh singer and actress Victoria Beckham announced her pregnancy in January and told fashion website First Class Fashionista that she doesn't know the sex of the baby yet, but did mention that her three sons are hoping for a little brother to play soccer with.

Beckham has already given birth to three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. Given this, and her status as a fashion icon, she may be hoping for a girl who would follow in the footsteps of her glamorous mother.

However, Beckham's stilettos would be hard ones to fill - as she's gained quite the reputation for her footwear - and even harder to walk in. She was recently spotted wearing a pair of chic platforms at the LAX Airport, and while the lady surely knows how to travel in style, those towering heels may be contributing to the onset of bunions and hammer toes that are already prevalent in pregnant women.

Bunion splint during pregnancy helps avoid bunions 

If complications do set in, she may not have to take time off from mothering her children since many podiatrists say bunion splints and orthotics may be effective in preventing and treating bunions and hammer toes.
