    Add this to the ever-growing list of reasons why we wish David and Victoria Beckham could be our parents.

    The 39-year-old fashion designer has been named the U.K.'s most inspirational mother, according to a new survey conducted by supermarket chain Asda (as reported by the Daily Mail).

    The mother of four tops the list of inspirational parents, beating out Angelina Jolie and Queen Elizabeth II for the honorable title.

    Additional parents who made the cut include TV presenter Holly Willoughby as well as the late Princess Diana

    Becks—who recently wowed with her collection at New York Fashion Week—earned the No. 1 spot for her keen ability to successfully balance her work and family life.

    "David and the children will always be my priority," she said in a recent interview with Chinese news station CCTV. "Everything that I do revolves around David and the children. As any working mom knows, it's a huge juggling act. But absolutely, they inspire me every day, every single day...I'm very lucky, I'm very blessed and I'm a very lucky lady."

    The mum to 14-year-old Brooklyn, 11-year-old Romeo, 8-year-old Cruz and 2-year-old Harper also opened up to Elle U.K. in January about her "need to work" and her desire to be remembered as more than David Beckham's missus. 

    "It was never my intention to prove anybody wrong," she said of her successful fashion line. "I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it."

    She added: "But I have a good work ethic; David has an incredible work ethic. I want my kids to have a good work ethic. I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it."
