Still crazy (in love) af­ter all these years

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

DAVID and Vic­to­ria Beck­ham have re­newed their wed­ding vows in an in­ti­mate cer­e­mony at­tended by just six peo­ple.

The cou­ple tied the knot in a lav­ish cer­e­mony in Ire­land in 1999, and David ad­mit­ted that their re­newal cer­e­mony was a much more taste­ful af­fair.

Speak­ing to Kirsty Young for a spe­cial 75th an­niver­sary edi­tion of Ra­dio 4’s Desert Is­land Discs, he said: “We did throw a lot at it. We have re­newed our vows since then and it was a lot more pri­vate, there was about six peo­ple there in our house.”

Re­fer­ring to the thrones they sat on at the wed­ding and their eye-catch­ing out­fits, he added: “That was pretty bold. Vic­to­ria’s was pretty nice.

“Mine, I’m like what was I think­ing? I even had a top hat in pur­ple. What was I think­ing?”

David, 41, and Vic­to­ria, 42, who have four chil­dren, have had a num­ber of ups and downs dur­ing their mar­riage, but he in­sisted they’re still deeply in love.

He said: “Of course you make mis­takes over the years, we all know mar­riage is dif­fi­cult at times and it’s about work­ing through it.

“When­ever we’ve come up against tough times, we know each other bet­ter than any­body knows us, so we talk.

“Do we stay to­gether be­cause it’s a brand? Of course not. We stay to­gether be­cause we love each other.

“We stay to­gether be­cause we have four amaz­ing chil­dren. Of course we go through tough times. When we go through tough times we work through it as a unit, as a fam­ily.”

David also praised his par­ents Ted and San­dra for pro­vid­ing him with a strong work ethic. “The only time my dad said ‘you know what, son, you’ve done re­ally well’ was when I got my 100th cap.

“From time to time he’d say ‘great game’. It makes me emo­tional. Prob­a­bly, ev­ery­body wants to make their par­ents proud.” – Bang Me­dia
