David Beckham has posted a picture of himself and wife Victoria smiling in a restaurant on the Instagram social media site – a week after the pair were forced to deny rumours their marriage was experiencing difficulties.
The couple, who have been married for 19 years, was joined by friends and their sons Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, and 13-year-old Cruz to celebrate the United States, Mexico and Canada’s successful joint bid for the 2026 World Cup.
David, 43, is now a part-owner of an MLS football team in Miami.
In the snap, posted to David’s social media site, 44-year-old Victoria appears to have her arm around her husband while they smile for the camera.
David captioned the image: “Amazing night … All about families and memories …. Miami all the way… celebrating USA , Mexico & Canada getting the 2026 World Cup futbolmiamimls.”
Dubbed “Posh and Becks” by the media, the couple met when Victoria, a former member of the Spice Girls, attended a Manchester United match in 1997.
They started dating shortly after, and married in 1999, just weeks after David helped Manchester United complete an historic “treble” of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup.
The couple’s marriage launched them to fame beyond the realm of their chosen professions, with David becoming a global fashion icon and Victoria building her own clothing empire.
In 2007, David signed for MLS side LA Galaxy, with the family’s move to California cementing their position as a global celebrity brand.
They have four children: Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and daughter Harper, seven.
Last week they were forced to respond after a number of media outlets reported bookmakers had suspended betting on the couple separating.
Representatives told The Sun there was “no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news”.
“This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time,” they added.
