David Beckham – successful football player
David Beckham was born on May 2, 1975 in Leytonstone.
He is fit, athletic, and handsome. He is rich and famous. He is very popular. He is the most successful British football player too. He’s become an idol.
David says that he had always wanted to become a football player. He played football at school and in 1991 he signed for Manchester United because he had always supported them and had always dreamed to play for them. He played for the United Youth team at first and in 1995 he established himself in the first team and soon became a top-scoring player.
David is an incredibly private person and he rarely gives interviews.
Victoria Adams, better known to the public as the pouting, style conscious, Posh Spice, married the England football captain David Beckham in 1999. But it is said that their love affair began long before they actually met!
Once, in 1996, David and his team-mate Gary watched TV after a match when the Spice Girls video appeared on screen. There was something about the immaculate brunette that immediately caught David’s eye. Turning to his friend he said: “That’s the girl for love at first sight.”
Certainly he didn’t know at that time, that Victoria also wanted to meet him after she had seen his photo in a football magazine. So when several months later she was invited to a Manchester United match she decided that it was too good an opportunity to miss, although she was not a football fan. They met at the players’ bar after the match, but the first meeting was a disaster – both were too shy to talk.
A month later Victoria with another Spice Girl – Mel С – turned up at another match. After the game Victoria spotted David at the bar. David mumbled: “Hi, are you alright?” and walked away. However this time Victoria came up to him. He blushed, she smiled – and soon they were chatting like old friends. When it was time to say goodbye, he took her number and promised to call next morning. Victoria wasn’t sure that he would keep his promise. She needn’t have worried – when David got home he wrote her number on seven bits of paper around the house not to lose it. He rang her up next day and it was the start of one of the most talked about love affairs of the last decade.
In 1999 Victoria and David bought a house in Hertfordshire. The press nicknamed it Beckhigham Palace.
They have son Brooklyn.
