20David Beckham Wanted To Spice Up His Life
And like most of us, he was smitten with the girl on TV. “See the girl in the dark short dress?” he said to a friend. “I’m going to marry her.” And marry her he did.
It was the late '90s and the Spice Girls were streaming across the television screens of people all over the world. Including football superstar David Beckham. It was then that he first laid eyes on Posh Spice aka Victoria Adams.
He then invited her to a Manchester United match in 1997. In a
letter that Victoria wrote to her younger self for Vogue UK, the singer and fashion designer wrote all about meeting the love of her life.
"Yes, love at first sight does exist," Beckham wrote. "It will happen to you in the Manchester United players' lounge—although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy. While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He's not even in the first team at this stage—you are the famous one)," she remembered.
"And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He's going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)"
Are you swooning yet?
