David Beckham still has 23 year old train ticket Posh first wrote her number on02/27/2020
David Beckham has revealed he still has the 23-year-old train ticket wife Victoria first wrote her number on.
The former footballer told how after once playing for Manchester United he plucked up the courage to approach Posh Spice after she'd "had a few drinks" in the player's lounge.
The 44-year-old told American chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, he had seen Victoria at one of his matches the week before.
But as she was with her manager as well as bandmate Sporty Spice, Melanie Chisholm, he did not get the chance to speak.
Luckily, the following week, Posh, 45, returned for another match providing him with a chance to pluck up the courage to speak to her.
"We knew of [the Spice Girls], obviously, because they were pretty big at the time, and I was just establishing myself in the Manchester United team," he said, adding his wife had "obviously" been his favourite band member.
"I didn't get to talk to her that day, but then the week after, she came back up to Manchester to watch another game."
Determined not to miss his chance again, Becks revealed: "She'd had a couple of drinks, so I decided, 'Why not?' I'd try to get her number.
"We talked for about an hour in the player's lounge. And she'd actually got the train up that day, so she wrote her number down on her train ticket, which I still have."
As the crowd sighed, Kimmel said, "And here you are 20 years later."
"Twenty years later, and four kids later," the former England star replied, referring to his sons Brooklyn, 20, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and eight-year-old daughter Harper.
He added he and Victoria will have been married for 21 years in July.
Beckham gave an insight into his marriage over his love of Lego.
"Victoria always laughs at me, and she'll come down at like, two o' clock in the morning, and I will still be trying to finish a piece off," he admitted.
"She posted something the other day because [the kit said] '11 years and above,' she was like, 'Really? You're still up at two o'clock in the morning doing 11 years and above?'"
Beckham told Kimmel he was still "a little kid" at heart, saying, "I love Lego. It calms me when I'm making it."
Earlier, he spoke of his pride over his friend Prince Harry for stepping down from the royal family.
Speaking to America's Entertainment Tonight, he described the Duke as an "amazing" person.
"We love him," Beckham said, speaking on behalf of his wife, Victoria Beckham.
"But I'm proud to see him growing up as an individual and being that person that every father wants to be.
"Every father wants to be loving to their children, and that's what I see with him."
Beckham, who attended Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018, said he hadn't spoken to the Duke about his decision to move abroad.
"I haven't spoken to Harry about him moving," he said.
"We speak as friends, and that's the most important thing for me.
"I think he's enjoying being a young father for the first time and that's what we always spoke about.
"When you are a parent, it changes everything for you. He always needs to be happy."
Beckham is America as his team Inter Miami CF prepare to make their football league debut on Sunday after a seven-year wait.
