Power couple David and Victoria Beckham are still going very strong after decades together, proving the naysayers wrong.
Over the weekend, the famous lovebirds celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary and didn’t shy away from serenading each other with sweet words on social media.
David & Victoria Beckham Have Been Married For 23 Years
On Sunday, Victoria and David both took to their individual Instagram pages to pay heartfelt tributes to each other, marking the special occasion. Of course, it is no small feat for such A-list celebrities to keep their marriage thriving after 23 years in the public eye, so the pair went all out.
The Spice Girl uploaded a heartwarming picture of her and her husband having a good time and laughing hard. David looked dapper in a sharp black suit as Victoria stood next to him in a green dress.
Addressing a particular rumor of them being in a loveless marriage, the elite fashion designer wrote, “They say he isn’t funny, they say I never smile, they said it wouldn’t last 😂 Today we celebrate 23 years being [sic] married. David you are my everything, I love you so much!!!! 💕.”
Victoria didn’t stop there as she took to her Stories to share several throwback photos of them, including one of them in the airport where she stunned in a skin-tight brown dress as David pushed their luggage.
She also uploaded a recent picture of them in a restaurant, their heads touching each other, with the caption, “@davidbeckham you are my everything! I love you so much !! 💕.”
The legendary soccer player opted for a throwback video of him and Victoria during a 2001 Comic Relief sketch with Ali G, the satirical fictional character created and performed by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.
The hilarious clip which was taken in the early years of their marriage saw Ali G ask the then-couple where they met, to which Victoria responded “at a football game.”

The host then asked David if he was into The Spice Girls before meeting his wife, to which the former Manchester United player said, “No, but I was into Posh.”
The former English player wrote in the accompanying caption, “No but I was into Posh🖤.. 23 years ago today Posh became Mrs Beckham , but she will always be Posh ❤️ Happy Anniversary WOW 23 years & 4 beautiful kiddies ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I love you, we all love you ❤️”
The couple’s sons, Romeo, Brooklyn, and Cruz, also gave their parents a shoutout for their anniversary on social media. Romeo uploaded a photo with his parents, writing, “Happy anniversary to the best parents in the world I love you so much,” while Cruz shared a similar message.
The Former Spice Girls Member Recently Turned 48
David and Victoria’s wedding anniversary comes two months after Posh Spice celebrated her 48th birthday. Proud husband David didn’t fail to celebrate the big milestone with a social media post.
As The Blast reported, the doting partner posted a lovely photo of them enjoying intimate nighttime at the beach next to a bonfire. The couple looked so in love while sharing a kiss with their arms wrapped around each other.
David sweetly captioned the post, “Happy Birthday to the most amazing wife, mummy & Businesswoman ❤️ Have the most amazing day because you deserve to x We all love you so much❤️ @victoriabeckham @brooklynpeltzbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven ❤️.”
The boys didn’t hesitate to shower their mum with love, dedicating individual posts to celebrate her birthday.
A Look At The Beckhams’ Love Story

Per reports, the charming couple first crossed paths in 1997 during a charity football match at the Manchester United players’ lounge.
In a British Vogue essay about their relationship, Victoria described their first interaction, writing, “Love at first sight does exist. 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.) And he has such a cute smile.”
David asked for her number which she wrote on his London-to-Manchester plane ticket — a ticket the star athlete still owns — and by the next year, the pair were happily engaged.
Alongside their engagement, the lovebirds broke the news of their first pregnancy and in 1999, their first son Brooklyn was born. On July 4, 1999, the pair walked down the aisle in a lavish ceremony at Luttrellstown Castle near Dublin.
Victoria stole the show in a 20-foot train Vera Wang gown paired with an 18K-gold tiara. Over the next 12 years, the duo welcomed three more children —Romeo, Cruz, and Harper.
The couple has navigated infidelity rumors, retirements, and career ups and downs, but have remained strong through it all. Congratulations to Victoria and David.
