They are undoubtedly one of the most sought after celeb couples and they are still as together as they were 20 years ago.
They are charming, successful, and head over heels in love with each other. Even after 20 years of togetherness, fashion mogul Victoria Beckham and wildly famous footballer David Beckham are going strong and how! While many of us do not believe in love at first sight, Posh says that they fell for each other instantly and knew that they were going to be together for the years to come.
After a Manchester United vs. Sheffield match, Victoria and David met in the players’ bar. David was very nervous and instantly smitten with Victoria, reports The Sun. He was shy too, so much so, that he thought he blew his chance off by not asking her out.
"I'm quite shy. I just waved from the other side of the bar," he said. But it took them no time to be comfortable around each other. "As soon as she smiled, I knew everything was going to be okay," he added, according to Wow Amazing.
Soon their whirlwind romance started gracing the front page of tabloids and newspapers and every detail of their relationship was keenly eyed by the press. There was also a time when David's loyalty towards Victoria was being questioned by the global media after his ex-girlfriend came out and talked about intimate details of their past relationship. Their relationship went through a tough time as gossip related to David's loyalty flooded the tabloids when Victoria was pregnant with their first child Brooklyn.
But it could not shake the foundation of their relationship. While the noise about his dalliances did bother her for a short time, but greater things happen only when we do not give value to the unimportant things. They went on to get married in 1999 after Brooklyn was born.
There have been no looking back for them ever since. The power couple of Hollywood is one of the favorite couples of many admirers across the globe and for all the right reasons. They have four children together - Brooklyn, 20, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 14, and Harper, 8. They are devoted parents and have a very breezy relationship with their kids. But makes them an inspiring couple is the devotion that they have for each other.
"We support each other, we're very lucky to have found each other and lucky that we're growing together," she said in a recent interview, reports Now To Love. She went on to add that their kids are one of the most significant aspects of their life that keeps them together. "The kids are our priority, everything we do revolves around the children. We both work really hard, we love what we do professionally." Victoria said on the US Today Show.
The relationship that has stood the test of time in an ever-shifting world of relationships in the tinsel town, started with a smile and a wave. They knew that they are in love, the very moment they saw each other. Speaking of her first encounter with David, Victoria said: "It was love at first sight."
In an old interview, David had mentioned that their body of work is completely different from one another but they are patient and love to listen to each other. "She comes home and shows me what she’s been doing all day and what exciting dresses and bags she’s got coming through. And then I say something boring like ‘I got kicked today.’ But we listen to each other," he explains. "We try to go out at least once a week, just the two of us, a quiet dinner somewhere. It’s not about wearing a nice dress or a nice suit. It’s just going out and chatting and having some time together."
Victoria had also revealed that the most beautiful thing about their relationship is that they are still very close to one another. "We are still so close, David and I. We were at a party the other day at my mum’s house, and I was sitting on his lap. We’re very affectionate. And I looked at him and thought after being married for 11 years! We were the only couple who were even near each other at that party. We’re soul mates."
Their two-decade-old marriage that has gone through many ups and downs is inspiring because the couple chose to face the challenges together and remain strongly attached to each other through all the phases. Even after two decades, the world-renowned celebrities look head over heels n love with each other like they were ages ago. From their charming public appearances where they steal everybody's thunder with their chemistry to their social media PDA, it's hard to not notice their devotion for one another.
David has always cherished and celebrated Victoria and respects her for being who she is. "Not only has she given me three amazing boys, but she’s truly an inspiration for me every day," he said.
