â¢ Fresh from dazzling at the Royal Wedding, Victoria Beckham took her family out for brunch in the Big Apple at Norma's inside Le Parker Meridien. With her husband jetting back to join the L.A. Galaxy, the expectant mother treated her three boys to chocolate chip pancakes, while she sipped on a smoothie and nibbled on some fresh berries. "She looked amazing, and even pregnant she was sporting six-inch heels," an onlooker says. "She was there with her parents, and all three of them where doting on the boys throughout brunch."
