The latest celebrity pet trend!

November 5, 2009

What did Victoria Beckham just buy husband David? You’ll have to read on to find out!

Victoria Beckham paid over $2000 for two miniature pot-bellied Gloucester Old Spot cross-breed animals for the soccer star as an early Christmas present.

“What can you possibly buy the multi-millionaire, superstar footballer who has absolutely everything? In the case of David Beckham, the answer is, obviously, a pair of cuddly designer piglets,” said a source. “Victoria fell in love with them and realised she’d found the perfect present.”

So what’s with the pigs? Apparently micro pigs are incredibly clean and easy to train! Paris Hilton would know. She added a fully-grown micro-pig called Miss Pigelette to her collection of animals, while “Harry Potter” star Rupert Grint has adopted two of the animals.

George Clooney started the trend over 20 years ago with his giant potbellied pig, Max who died in 2006.

So what do you think? Do pigs make good pets? Would you get one?
