Soccer legend David Beckham rose to mega-stardom for a majority of reasons. Be it his glittering spell with Manchester United and his absolute wand of a right foot, or his exploits in Hollywood, and of course, his eccentric haircuts. But ‘Becks’ really turned into an international celebrity after kicking off a relationship with Spice Girls star Victoria Adams. The pair became a power couple almost immediately, and they were also a constant presence in newspapers and tabloids.

Reporting around them was incessant, especially during the initial years of their union, and a particularly intriguing story surrounding the two is centered around the most bizarre s*x toy ever. While the headlines would usually speak about their lavish lifestyles, this bit of information is not so glamorous.
As per reports, it all happened when Victoria Beckham was pregnant with the couple’s third son, Cruz David in 2004. Being the caring and affectionate husband he is, Becks opted to give his pregnant wife an incredible intimate gift. He audaciously gave the pop star a s*x toy, but of course, it featured a grandiose twist.
The toy was entirely encrusted with diamonds, with the base linking to a 16-card diamond necklace. Despite the bling, the toy remained a perfectly functional vibrator. The ridiculous gift reportedly cost Beckham a whopping $1.8 million. Reports also mention that the luxurious item was created by strip club owner Peter Stringfellow.
It is also said that the toy was an exclusive item, as only 10 pieces were produced.
Despite the ludicrous nature of the gift, the gesture remains oddly thoughtful. And it is also indicative of just how successful their marriage has been.
How did David and Victoria Beckham meet?
As stated by David Beckham himself, the couple first met in 1997 in the Manchester United player’s lounge.
Despite being hazy after downing a few drinks, the former AC Milan player admittedly fell in love at first sight.
They began dating shortly after their first encounter, and they quickly became soccer’s ‘posh couple’.
Within 2 years, David proposed to Victoria, and the couple got hitched in July 1999. Their glamorous wedding ceremony was the talk of the town for months to come. And soon enough, the couple gave the tabloids an even bigger topic to report. They had their first child just 4 months after the wedding, a boy named Brooklyn.

The couple went on to have their second child in 2002, another boy name Romeo, which was followed up by yet another son in 2005 – Cruz David. In 2011, they welcomed a girl named Harper Seven into the world, and the couple have 4 children in total.
David and Victoria Beckham are possibly the best examples of a power couple fulfilling their potential, as they have been together for 24 years.
