Victoria Beckham led the way in 1997 when she met Manchester United player David Beckham at a charity football match. Over the years the former Spice Girl has sat in the stands at many of her husband's games while he played for teams including Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain. The pair, who have four children, have been through ups and downs together and arguably have one of the strongest celebrity marriages.
