David and Victoria Beckham are one of the longest-lasting famous couples in the world. The former soccer star has been with the former Spice Girl for more than two decades, and the two have four children together.

As hard as it may be to believe, though, there was a time when the two of them were leading separate lives. Before they were together, they both probably had celebrity crushes. After all, who doesn't when they're a teenager alone in their room.

During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Victoria was playing a game of Burning Questions, which is designed to make celebrities reveal things the public may not know about them. One of the first questions in the game was "Who was your first celebrity crush?"

Victoria thought about it for a moment, then declared that it was, in fact, her husband, David Beckham. At first, Ellen seemed to think she was joking, but Victoria confirmed that it was true.

"Wow, that’s fantastic that you married your first crush," Ellen said.

"It’s all about creative visualization," Victoria replied. Most of us were already jealous enough of the couple, who are both insanely wealthy and insanely beautiful. Now, it turns out they got to marry their crushes, which is something most of us only fantasize about. They really do have it all.

The two first met at a charity soccer game in London in 1997. The two hit it off immediately, and were married two years later.


According to reporting in Goal, David first saw Victoria in a Spice Girls music video and told his friends at the time "That one there, that’s the girl I’m going to marry." He called his shot, and it paid off for him in a major way.

Sometimes, it pays to be world-famous, incredibly handsome, and world-class athlete. David and Victoria Beckham both got to marry people they were interested in before they met. Usually, love doesn't work out nearly that well.

Elsewhere in the game, Victoria revealed that her biggest fear is going into outer space. DeGeneres seemed confused, in part because it seems like it Victoria wants to avoid space forever, it won't be that hard for her. Space travel is not something most people get to experience in their lives.

"Well, you’re not going to go into space," the host said. That may not have done very much to quell Victoria's fears, but it certainly worked to point out the obvious.
