Victoria Beckham is just your average mother, balancing work, family – and her hot soccer star husband.

Talking on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show Wednesday about her life as a Hollywood housewife, Beckham, 33, said of her and talked about her life as a Hollywood mom of three boys: Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 5, and Cruz, 2.

"I think they think everybody's mommy is a Spice Girl," she said when asked for her children's opinion of their parents' celebrity status. "I just had my hair dyed the other day and I got in the car and they looked at me and said, 'Oh my goodness, it's Posh Spice. She's back.' "

And, like all normal couples, Victoria and husband David Beckham have their major differences. "He's very tidy, and I am not," she says. How organized is he? "Even our 'fridge is color coded," she says.

When it comes to cleaning, "David vacuums in straight lines. And if anyone walks on the carpet he gets upset."

Not that it's all about cleaning. Even after eight years of marriage, "He's really romantic," she says. "He's very good at sending flowers and cards."

'Britney's Far More Interesting'

Victoria also chatted with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show airing Thursday and told of how she deals with paparazzi.

"When we first got here, it was really intense. There was tons of press every single day," she says. "And then they kind of figured out that actually we're quite boring and Britney's far more interesting, and so they go to her house. We're not out at nightclubs every night. We're a bit boring for them I think."

Although the Beckhams are not used to Halloween festivities in their native England, they are adapting well to American culture. "I've got three Batmans at home right now," she says of her sons' costumes. "We will go trick or treating tonight."

And for those who are looking for tips on how to dress as Victoria Beckham for Halloween costume, the Spice Girl advises, "Don't smile at all. You have to look really miserable. Like really miserable. Annoyed. And wear a short skirt, very high heels and a bob hairstyle."
