David Beckham Honors His Best Man by Hitting the Field With Manchester United Again
David Beckham gave a thumbs-up this afternoon as he headed inside the Old Trafford stadium to watch the home team, Manchester United, take on Juventus from Turin, Italy. Becks is in the UK with his former squad as a salute to his friend and best man, Gary Neville, who is retiring soon. David put on the Manchester jersey to play for 90 minutes with his old pal, in what's called a testimonial. David left Manchester in 2003, after a falling out with then-manager Alex Ferguson, and moved on to play for Real Madrid. The trip meant David missed out on traveling with the LA Galaxy as they played an away game in Houston, though his teammates didn't mind since they understood the importance of David's visit. David was accompanied by his wife, Victoria, and their sons during their last visit home to England for the royal wedding in April. Victoria sent her support from afar, writing on Twitter, "Tonight is going to be an amazing night for David at Old Trafford! Great to see him in a Man. U. shirt playing with his old team mates!"
Victoria stepped out yesterday to honor someone close to her, bringing their oldest son, Brooklyn, along to see her business partner and former Spice Girl manager Simon Fuller's star on the Walk of Fame ceremony. The mom-to-be is going into the final weeks of her pregnancy, as the family patiently awaits the arrival of a baby girl rumored to be coming into the world in early July. Besides gearing up for the special delivery and tending to their new puppy, Scarlett, David has another venture in the works to keep him busy. David Beckham is launching his own intimate apparel line, and, lucky for us, plans to star in all the ads himself.
