David Beckham

David BeckhamIn 2007, Brit David Beckham invaded America along with Posh. It was his marriage to Victoria “Posh” Adams of the Spice Girls that made him iconic, though it was his skill on the field that propelled him to fame in the Manchester United Soccer Club.

Posh & Becks as they became known could never make it to real royal status as they do not have the right background, but became famous enough with their three sons and a mansion dubbed “Beckingham Palace” by the media, for the press to jokingly accord them that status.

Posh (& Becks) took over Hollywood with Beckham’s Los Angeles Galaxy deal, but a knee injury sidelined David right when he was getting started.

David who has scored deals with Adidas and Pepsi, has also faced several scandals. There have been allegations of an affair; a kidnapping threat; and a controversial decision to play for rival soccer team Real Madrid.

The couple added a daughter Harper Seven to the clan of boys in 2011.

It is said that David Beckham once topped Winston Churchill as the face his countrymen wanted to see on their money, though I have my doubts about that.

David Beckham was born on May 02, 1975 in Leytonstone, London, England.
