David Beck­ham has a few hid­den gems up his sleeve


OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

David and Vic­to­ria Beck­ham have been through many ups and downs over the course of their al­most two-decades-long mar­riage. How­ever, one thing has been con­sis­tent through­out their ro­mance – the fash­ion de­signer’s steady stream of bling from her hubby!

The Bri­tish power pair have hinted at the

work that goes into keep­ing their union in­tact, with the for­mer foot­baller re­veal­ing ear­lier this year that they’ve had rocky patches. ‘Of course you make mis­takes over the years, and we all know mar­riage is dif­fi­cult at times,’ he shared. ‘It’s about work­ing through it.’

And it seems the se­cret to keep­ing their mar­riage alive could lie in some not-so-hid­den gems! The 42-year-old has gifted his wife with a whop­ping 13 dif­fer­ent en­gage­ment rings as a to­ken of his love in their time to­gether. But while they say di­a­monds are a girl’s best friend, could David have an ul­te­rior mo­tive for show­er­ing Vic­to­ria in ex­pen­sive jew­els?

The duo have weath­ered their fair share of storms over the years, with cheat­ing scan­dals and di­vorce ru­mours plagu­ing the cou­ple.

And this year has been no dif­fer­ent, with the Beck­hams dealt an­other blow to the squeaky-clean im­age they try to up­hold when emails emerged show­ing David launch­ing a foul-mouthed tirade against the Bri­tish Hon­ours Com­mit­tee af­ter it over­looked him for a knight­hood back in 2014.

Then there’s the con­stant cheat­ing whis­pers. While Becks main­tains his in­no­cence af­ter his for­mer per­sonal as­sis­tant Re­becca Loos ac­cused him of adul­tery in 2004, he has con­tin­ued to be linked to a bevy of beau­ties – most re­cently Bri­tish so­cialite Lady Mary Charteris, with whom he’s been spot­ted sev­eral times over the past few months.

‘David has spent time par­ty­ing with Mary at events into the early hours of the morn­ing,’ an in­sider re­veals of the new friends. ‘They were in­tro­duced by [his close pal and man­ager] Dave [Gard­ner] and Vic­to­ria is very wor­ried that she is not the best in­flu­ence on David. They met at Glas­ton­bury but Vic­to­ria is not fond of her.’

But de­spite the con­stant spec­u­la­tion sur­round­ing their mar­riage, Vic­to­ria, 43, main­tains that they have a very happy re­la­tion­ship. ‘David and I have a lot of fun to­gether,’ she shared ear­lier this year. ‘If I re­ally was as mis­er­able as I look in some of those pa­parazzi pic­tures, my chil­dren wouldn’t be as happy as they are. And I cer­tainly wouldn’t be mar­ried any­more.’

And no doubt, David’s steady stream of di­a­monds hasn’t hurt…
