Victoria and David Beckham have been married 17 years and have four gorgeous children. Their love story is pretty much the kind Nicholas Sparks novels are made out of, and the new issue of Vogue UK proves it.
In the October issue of the magazine, Victoria shared a gorgeous letter to her 18-year-old self and said the most heartwarming things about how she met her love. We can’t really handle how cute this is. According to Victoria, when she first saw Beckham in the Manchester United players’ lounge in 1997, it was love at first site.
“And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy,” she writes.
Victoria then goes into detail about what it was about David that felt so special.
“While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He’s going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)”
He still has the plane ticket. We repeat, he still has the plane ticket. Literal tears are streaming down our face right now! Thanks, V!
