It’s hard to imagine a time when David Beckham and Victoria Beckham were anything but the ultimate power couple.

But it turns out that early on in their relationship the pair were closer to strangers than the tight knit team we saw on the hit Netflix documentary about the couple’s life.

David Beckham, 48, recently revealed that he ‘didn’t know’ wife Victoria Beckham, 49, at the time of their marriage.

The legendary footballer reflected on his 25 years of marriage to Posh Spice on SiriusXM’s This Life of Mine with James Corden, disclosing that his wife’s true personality came as a surprise to him after they were already married.

He admitted that when he decided to put a ring on her finger in 1999 after just two years of dating, he ‘fancied her’ but didn’t really know her as a person.

It wasn’t until after the pair were wed that David began to really see his wife as the ‘strong woman’ she is.

He shared: ‘I really just fancied her. I did. I just fancied her.

‘I didn’t know what she was like as a person. I just actually fancied her like most people did at that time, and I didn’t know who I was marrying [or] who I was going to be with for the rest of my life.’

The pair, who are parents to Brooklyn, 25, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 19, and 12-year-old Harper, are definitely beyond ‘just fancying’ each other now.

Victoria reflected on the strength of their relationship in a profile in W magazine: ‘No one said marriage was going to be easy. Yes, there have been bumps along the road. But the fact is we’ve come out of everything we’ve been through stronger and happier. It’s even better now than when we were first married. After all these years, we can just come home and have a laugh together.’

So how did they get to that point?

David told Corden that once he got to know Victoria, their marriage really took off: ‘I didn’t realise what a strong woman she was, and that is what really attracted me to her more than anything.’

He continued: ‘I like a strong woman, and I like the fact that she works hard. I like the fact that she’s a great mum.’

The English icon even admitted that sometimes he likes his wife to dote on him, saying, ‘I like the fact that she looks after me sometimes, most of the time, and you know, we’ve created this life with four amazing children, which are the most important things in our life, so that’s why I chose Victoria… the way that she kind of runs the family.’

The successful marriage can be credited to the Spice Girls’ song Say You’ll Be There, according to David, who revealed that it was that music video that first drew him to Victoria.

He said: ‘It’s my favourite because it was the song that was on the TV when I was sat in my room with Gary Neville and it came on the telly and that was when I turned around to Gary and said, “I’m gonna marry that one in the short black dress.”‘

It’s obvious that despite jumping into marriage, after 25 years together, the couple made the right choice.
