5. Love at the first sight

In 1996, Victoria Beckham was already famous. She was known as Posh Spice in Spice Girls, a singing band, Victoria had millions of fans and could have had any man in the world. She accompanied her bandmate Mel C to a football game, Manchester United vs. Sheffield. There she met her future husband, David Beckham.

After the match, Victoria and David met in the players’ bar. David was very nervous and instantly smitten with her. ‘I could feel myself getting nervous again when she walked over and started talking. As soon as she smiled I knew everything was going to be OK.”

4. Romance and media attention

David and Victoria got to know each other before the paparazzi followed them around. They had a few low-key dates before the press heard about their budding romance.  “For the first three months, it was amazing because no one found out about us being together. We loved that because we could sneak around,” said David Beckham.

They did it all to keep their relationship a secret. “We managed to keep it quiet for the first eight weeks. We used to go out in disguises hats, glasses, all sorts of ridiculous clothes, and it worked,” says Victoria.

3. First Kiss in the car park

The new couple didn’t exchange a single kiss until their 4th date. “Our first kiss was in the car park of a restaurant. We used to drive to places and just spend as much time together as possible. That was an amazing time in our relationship. […] I’m glad I waited…”

The couple was at Victoria’s parents’ house when they revealed the depth of their feelings for each other for the very first time. ‘David told me that he loved me and I said, “I love you too”. And that was that.’
