The Love Story of David and Victoria Beckham
Victoria lives a happy married life with her husband David Beckham. Victoria met the soccer legend in a 1997 charity football match. At the time, Beckham was playing for Manchester United while Victoria Adams was a member of the Spice Girls. The moment he saw her, Beck told his friends she was the one he was going to marry. Before then, Victoria saw him on TV and immediately fell for him.
They started dating and by the next year, their engagement was announced. The couple got married on July 4, 1999, at Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland. The wedding was exclusively covered by OK! magazine. Their union battled with infidelity issues as well as divorce rumors, but they have remained together and stronger to date.
Many have found it pretty surprising that two decades later, David and Victoria are still holding on strong, something many celebrities seem not to know how to do. One of the main reasons the two are together many years after is the genuine love they have for each other. More so, it is revealed that thanks to their years together, both Posh and Becks have come to understand each other, and that has made it easy for them to hold onto one another. They also share a lot of things in common, including their sense of fashion which has made them arguably the classiest couple in Hollywood.
Like every celebrity marriage destined to last, the two have come to build strong shoulders against everything that the media is saying about them, including insinuations by the British media that she was not good enough for her husband.

Cruz David Beckham
Next in line is Cruz David Beckham who was born in Spain on February 20, 2005. Cruz, just like his two brothers, had a contract with Arsenal when he was young as their father had hoped they would also be footballers. However, it turned out it wasn’t the path for him.
