David and Victoria Beckham spent dates in pub car parks
David and Victoria Beckham used to spend their dates together in pub car parks.
The 41-year-old former soccer star and the 42-year-old fashion designer tried to keep their relationship quiet during their first few months of dating in the 90s, and David has admitted they even resorted to sneaking off to pub car parks in order to spend time together.
David shared: "We used to sit in a Harvester car park and we just used to … we just used to kiss, of course, and spend time together."
David and Victoria tied the knot in 1999 and were due to have Sir Elton John appear at their lavish wedding, but the legendary singer was forced to pull out at the last minute due to healthy problems.
Despite this, Sir Elton did later perform at the christening of their children.
David – who shares children Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and Harper, five, with his wife – admitted he is particularly fond of Sir Elton’s hit ‘Something About The Way You Look Tonight’ and said he considers the 69-year-old star to be a good friend.
He told BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’: "We became friends with Elton, and he was coming to the wedding to perform this song.
"We had a phone call that morning to say unfortunately Elton was on the plane and had a heart attack.
"Obviously we were more worried about his health and how he was but we christened the kids a couple of years after that, and he came and performed this song in our house, and it’s a very special song for us."
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that David and Victoria raked in a £22 million bonus from their business empire.
The duo earned the staggering amount from profits at their business firm Beckham Brand Holdings after accounts showed annual profits for the company have quadrupled from £10 million to just under £40 million.
Beckham Brand Holdings oversees the fashion firm run by the former Spice Girl as well as DB Ventures, which brings in money from "licensing and other forms of commercialisation of the David Beckham brand".
