A dreamy love story

People Magazine reports that Victoria and David lived 15 minutes from each other, but there wasn't a chance for them to meet until Victoria attended a football match. Victoria was Posh Spice at the time, and David was playing for Manchester United.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres, David said:

She came to a football match — soccer match — and I said hi from across the room and that was it. I thought I'd missed my chance, and then a week later she turned up at another football match.

The second time they met, there was more of an interaction. The couple spoke for an hour, but before Victoria left, she wrote her number on her train ticket and gave it to David, and the footballer notes that he still has the ticket with the number.

Victoria and David got engaged in 1998 and officially got married a year later in 1999. People Magazine further reports that the wedding was attended by Elton John, George Michael, David's teammates from Manchester United, and some members of the Spice Girls as well.
