Love at first sight may sound like the stuff of fairytales — unless you fell for your fiancé the moment you laid eyes on him or her, of course! — but it proved to be reality for Victoria Beckham, who knew she was head over heels for her future hubby David Beckham as soon as she met him. As if you weren't obsessed with these two enough as it is...
The beautiful Beckhams have been going strong for over 17 years now, having tied the knot in July of 1999 with the poshest wedding of the '90s. (Pun intended!) Since then, they've dominated the tabloids (and our hearts!) with their super stylish family and long lasting love. But before they said their "I do's," they of course had to say hello! (Duh.) And it was in that very moment that the Spice Girl knew she was in love with the up-and-coming soccer superstar.
In the October issue of Vogue UK, Beckham penned a letter to her younger self, titled "What I Wish I'd Known."
"Yes, love at first sight does exist," the fashion designer began. "It will happen to you in the Manchester United players' lounge — although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy." Ehh, happens to the best of us, Beckham!
"While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family," continued Beckham. "And he has such a cute smile.You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you."
And then just when we thought this story couldn't get any sweeter, Beckham revealed that her now-hubby still has a memento from that fateful day. "He's going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it,)" she shared.
Cue our can't-be-contained squeals over this nearly perfect meet-cute.
