David and Victoria Beckham share gushing anniversary messages as they celebrate 20 years of marriage
DAVID and Victoria Beckham have shared gushing anniversary messages as they celebrate 20 years of marriage today.
The pair were inundated with well-wishes as they marked the milestone – with their three sons also posting tributes in honour of their parents.
The power couple tied the knot on July 4th 1999, and Victoria, 45, marked the occasion with a video montage that featured photos of her with her hunky husband over the past two decades.
She wrote: “20 years today. I love you so much xxxxx Kisses x @davidbeckham”.
David, 44, posted a selection of images, starting with one from their wedding day and ending with one of them with their four children, 20-year-old Brooklyn, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 14, and seven-year-old Harper.
He gushed: “WOW 20 years, look what we created. Love you so much @victoriabeckham @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven”.
Brooklyn followed up with a casual black and white snap of his parents on his own social media page, writing: “Happy anniversary xx love you mum and dad xx have a wonderful day.”
Romeo shared an image from the wedding day, adding: “Happy 20th anniversary to the best parents, love you so much.”
Cruz posted the same photo and wrote: “Happy anniversary to the most amazing mum and dad you mean the world to me, I love you so much you have no idea.
“Thank you for all the amazing times we have had. Love you so much, mum and dad.”
David also took to his Instagram Story to share his and Victoria’s anniversary present from youngest child Harper.
The sportsman was clearly blown away after receiving a personalised story book documenting his and Victoria’s romance.
Although many of the family’s followers were overwhelmed by the huge declaration of love, the public display of affection may have raised eyebrows for others who question why they didn’t keep their sweet messages private.
The couple’s romance has been rocked over the years, with David’s personal assistant Rebecca Loos claiming that she had an affair with the football legend back in 2004.
Ever since, the family have further developed Brand Beckham – often publicly supporting each other at football matches and fashion shows with twee Instagram posts as they publicly put forward their picture-perfect marriage.
The Beckhams famously spent a reported £800,000 on their spectacular wedding day, which saw the pair sit on golden thrones and Victoria wear a glittering tiara.
Brooklyn, who was just four months old at the timer, served as ring bearer.
Victoria opened up about her secret to a happy marriage in a letter to her 18-year-old self that she wrote for Vogue magazine in 2017.
She shared at the time: “On marriage: have patience. Bite your tongue. Be supportive. And preserve a bit of mystique. Never let yourself go completely (at least brush your hair, clean your teeth, have a bit of a brow going on because you will always want him to look at you and feel attracted).

“Always make time for each other. Because if you don’t, everything will revolve around the children and I’m not sure how sexy that is!”
Meanwhile, David was said to have upset his wife last year when he admitted that marriage can be “hard work”.
He said in an interview: “To be married for the amount of time that we have, it’s always hard work, everybody knows that but you make it work.
“You make difficult situations like travelling away, being away from each other, you make it work.”
