Bend it like the Beckhams
It has been 18 years since Posh and Becks wed and since then they had four beautiful children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, amassed a small (read large) fortune and shown us all that celebrity marriages sometimes do last.

In honour of this milestone anniversary, let’s take a walk down their very eventful memory lane and share their love of fashion, football and everything else in between.
The most expensive wedding
The famous couple met in 1997 at a charity event and got married two years later on 4 July in a lavish and extravagant event that cost around $800,000. It was reportedly the most expensive wedding at the time. The couple had matching gold thrones and Victoria wore an over the top Vera Wang satin dress – in stark contrast to her current well-tailored and subtle fashion style that she’s since adopted. After the nuptials, the couple changed into matching purple wedding outfits.
In 1998 Beckham’s popularity took a knock when he was blamed for England’s hasty exit from the World Cup in 2006. Upset fans were extremely upset and had burnt effigies of the famous footballer. Beckham laid low until the frenzy died down and the football star was soon forgiven. The stylish couple also hasn’t been controversy-free during their 18-year union. In 2004, Rebecca Loos, David’s personal assistant alleged that she had had an ongoing affair with the star behind his wife’ back. Whilst Beckham refuted the claims they have publicly acknowledged that their marriage has had ups and downs and that they had to work through challenges in order to make it successful.
Most recently leaked emails from David Beckham showed that he had actively lobbied to be knighted and was incredibly upset at not being honoured in this way for all the charity work that he had done. Other emails show that Beckham demanded luxurious accommodation for his charity work for himself and his team and refused to use his own money when it came to matching the amount of charity money that was raised. Beckham’s team responded to these allegations by calling the emails doctored and untrue.
Beautiful Beckham Babies
The Beckham children have already started carving out names for themselves in different fields. It does help when you have superior gorgeous genes from a super stylish mother and talented football player father. Romeo James Beckham (14 years old) has already created a name for himself in the modelling industry, landing campaigns with big fashion brands like Burberry. Romeo is also said to be a talented tennis player. Cruz Beckham (11 years old) has followed in his mother’s footsteps and launched his own singing career. His first single, ‘If Every Day Was Christmas’ was well received. Cruz has also followed his brother and famous father by showing a keen interest in football.So what next for the Beckham dynasty? Only time will tell but if the past 18 years are anything to go, chances are we will be hearing from this famous family for a long time to come.
