David Beckham has revealed he still has the train ticket which Victoria wrote her phone number on when they first met.
The former England footballer has been married to the ex-Spice Girl since and they have four children together.
Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Beckham recalled how he was a young player at Manchester United when he first met his future wife, who was then called Victoria Adams.
He described how she had come to watch a game with her fellow band member Mel C, or Sporty Spice, in 2019.
Beckham said: “We knew of them, obviously, because they were pretty big at the time. And I was just establishing myself in the Manchester United team at the time. But we all had our favorite Spice Girl. “
Asked by Fallon if Victoria was his favorite, a laughing Beckham replied: “She was obviously my favorite, might be a bit awkward if (she) was not.”
He said Victoria then traveled to Manchester again the following week and that was when they spoke for the first time.
Beckham, whose Inter Miami football club are about to enter Major League Soccer in the US, said: “She’d had a couple of drinks so I decided why not, I’ll try and get her number.
“We talked for about an hour in the players’ lounge. She actually got the train up that day so she wrote her number down on her train ticket, which I still have. “
The Beckhams tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland in July 1999.
They have four children – sons Brooklyn, , Romeo, , Cruz, and eight-year-old daughter Harper.
