Los Angeles: Retired celebrity footballer David Beckham insists his wife Victoria Beckham is "just as beautiful today" as when they first met 16 years ago at a Manchester United match. He also reveals how he was very shy to strike a conversation with her initially.
David, who married Victoria in July 1999, said: "I was playing with Manchester United against Chelsea in London, and she came down with my manager. I was very shy so I introduced myself and left."
"I kind of was disappointed that I didn't talk to her a bit more, but then the next week she came back for another game, then it was my chance and I got her number. Victoria's still just as beautiful today, I'm not sure that's the case with me," contactmusic.com quoted David as saying.
