David Beckham Says Wife Victoria Has Eaten Same Meal For 25 Years
| Last updated
When Manchester United star David Beckham and Posh Spice got together in the '90s, people could be forgiven for predicting it might be the sort of celebrity love story that burns out pretty quickly.
But fast-forward to the present day, and the couple are still going strong, having been married for more than 20 years, sharing four children together.
That said, like with any relationship, they have their differences that they have to overcome, and it seems their contrasting culinary tastes is a biggie.
Speaking on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast, former England captain Beckham revealed that his wife has been scranning the same meal for the past quarter of a century.
"I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I'm eating something great I want everyone to try it," he explained.
"Unfortunately I'm married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years.
"Since I met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that."
Ah well, at least it isn't Maccies, I suppose.
The 46-year-old continued: "The only time she's probably ever shared something that's been on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper and it was the most amazing thing.
"It was one of my favourite evenings. I can't remember what it was but I know she's not eaten it since."
Given their differing diets, Golden Balls makes the most of the occasions when she isn't around.
Indeed, he admitted he recently made himself one of the best meals he's had in ages when he had the house to himself.
He recalled: "Pretty recently I was in isolation for five days because I'd just been to Italy so I came back and on one of the last days Victoria's parents had a party and I couldn't actually go to it. So everyone was out of the house and I secretly loved it.
"I literally had two of the most amazing cuts of meat. One was a T-bone and I had some English wagyu, I poured one glass of the most amazing red wine that I treated myself to because I was on my own looking forward to watching the football in the afternoon on my own. So I set the barbecue up."
He continued: "I think there's nothing better than when you have time to get everything right.
"I had a nice tomato and shallot salad and the meat and a glass of wine and it was the most amazing meal that I had for a long time. Those are my most amazing afternoons and evenings.
"The wagyu was quite thick and I don't like to brag but it was cooked to perfection.
"I put it on the grill and cooked it for six or seven minutes either side, bit of salt and a bit of pepper.
"I like my meat rare, medium at a push, but more rare and it came out perfect. And it was only me in the house so I ate it all."
Fair play, David, that does sound like a pretty blissful day.
