David Beckham was feeling the love on his huge 40th extravaganza yesterday, and after gushing over his wifeVictoria – he had three key people he wanted to thank. The original Beckhams. The former footballer has shared a snap with his parents Sandra and David and younger sister Joanne following the party, and posted a loving message of thanks as he cuddled up to them. He wrote: “I have a lot to thank these people for. Couldn’t have done it without them.”
The star marked the occasion with a huge bash in Marrakech, Morocco, this weekend – and he couldn’t resist a whole load of gushing over wifeVictoria after it. He wrote: “Thanks to my beautiful wife for such an amazing day x (sic).” David – who has already amassed almost 3 million followers on Instagram since he launched his account this morning – also invited a host of celebrity friends to join him for the £250,000 milestone bash, with television chef Gordon Ramsay and The Incredible Hulk actress Liv Tyler in attendance.
Other famous faces who joined the couple and their four children, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10 and Harper, three, included Victoria’s former Spice Girls bandmates Emma Bunton and Mel C, and Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria. Throughout the day, members of the family updated fans with details of the party on social media, while David even took a break to congratulate Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their daughter, with whom he now shares a birthday. He wrote on Facebook: “Incredible news. I couldn’t be happier for William and Kate. Happy to hear that mother and daughter are fine. It’s not a bad day to be born.” It comes after Vic revealed what her and her hubby are wearing for his big evening, and they are the perfect couple. Who’s surprised? The fashion designer shared the first snap of the evening as she cosied up to her man in a truly adorable photo. Showing a glimpse at their luxury resort with a stunning backdrop, the couple posed close together as David held a glass of wine in one hand, and wrapped his other round his wife’s waist.
David looked as incredible as ever in a loose white shirt, adding some casual sandals to the outfit and showing off a glowing tan. Meanwhile Vic looked totally glamorous in a floor-length black maxi dress, as she leaned into her husband’s side. The pair are surrounded by lanterns and have a huge pool directly behind them, giving the impression they’re staying in paradise.
Which of course they are. She wrote: “Special evening with family and friends x #DB40 x @davidbeckham.” The star is joined by his family and the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Liv Tyler and more celebrity friends for his big day, and is marking the occasion in a hotel close to his heart, the Amanjena in Marakech.
The former footballer renewed his wedding vows with Victoria at the luxury resort in 2008. It boasts private pools, a giant luxury tent for the birthday dinner, incredible views and plush rooms for the guests. According to The Sun, David is expected to sit at the head of the table tonight, as he’s joined by more celebrity pals including Gary Neville, Liz Hurley, David Walliams, Snoop Dogg and more.
There will be two huge golden balls hanging from the ceiling, in honour of his nickname, and two lambs are expected to be cooked in a traditional Moroccon fire pit. According to the newspaper, entertainment will range from belly dancing to musicians. Snaps taken from inside the resort show expansive swimming pools, candlelit and vast rooms, beautiful archways and luxury decor.
