In a playful moment that showed their fun-loving side, David Beckham gently teased his wife, Victoria Beckham, about her statement that she grew up in a “working-class” family.
This humorous exchange took place during a segment on David’s new Netflix docuseries, “Beckham,” where he had candid chats with his closest friends and family.
In one scene, Victoria, best known as Posh Spice from the Spice Girls, talked about her background, describing it as “pretty working class.” David, not missing a beat, decided to join in on the conversation and playfully called her out for perhaps stretching the truth a bit.
With a playful tone, David, who is 48 years old, popped up from behind a door and asked her, “Are you sure you’re being completely honest?” Victoria, who is 49, responded firmly, “Yes, I’m being honest!”
Their friendly banter continued, with David gently asking, “What car did your dad use to drive you to school?”
Not one to shy away, Victoria tried to dodge the question, but David playfully persisted, saying, “Just give me one answer.” This prompted a surprising confession from the fashion designer as she admitted, “Alright, in the 1980s, my dad had a Rolls Royce.”
Victoria’s background was indeed different from the traditional working-class upbringing she initially mentioned. She grew up in Essex, England, in a house that even had a pool, according to reports from the BBC. It was during her time with the Spice Girls in 1994 that Simon Fuller, a famous music manager, gave her the nickname Posh Spice, a name that would become closely associated with her.
Victoria and David Beckham tied the knot in 1999, during the peak of his football career. However, their relationship faced challenges when David moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2003, accompanied by rumors of infidelity.
Reflecting on that tough time, Victoria revealed, “It was the most difficult period for us because it felt like the world was against us. To be honest, we were sometimes against each other.” She described that period as the least happy in her life.
David, on his part, shared, “Victoria means everything to me. It was incredibly tough to see her hurt. But we’re fighters. At that time, we had to fight for each other and for our family. What we had was definitely worth fighting for.”
