When David Met Victoria
Claire Miles - March 6, 2020

There are no shortage of celebrity power-couples that both inspire us and fill us with absolute jealousy, completely redefining the meaning of #relationshipgoals.  But when it comes to David and Victoria Beckham, they are one couple that seriously stands out from the rest.  

David recently made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and he actually shared some exciting secrets and details of what it was like meeting Victoria for the very first time in 1997! 

David recalls how Victoria came to watch him play in a London game together with her manager, as well as with Sporty Spice.  He admits that Posh Spice was already of course his favorite member of the Spice Girls. And although he didn’t get to talk to her on that very day, he did invite his wife-to-be to come to watch another one of his games just a week later. 

He chatted her up for around an hour in the players lounge, managing to score her number which he wrote down on a train ticket that she had taken to the game.  David apparently even still has that legendary ticket (adorable!). 

The dreamy couple got engaged a mere year later and made it official in 1999. Can we all please have a celebrity fairy-tale story like theirs?
