Victoria started dating footballer David Beckham in 1997, and the couple were dubbed "Posh and Becks" by the media. Beckham proposed to Victoria on 24 January 1998 in a restaurant in Cheshunt, England, and their first son, Brooklyn Joseph, was born on 4 March 1999.
The two were married at Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland on 4 July 1999, and the wedding attracted tremendous media coverage. Beckham's teammate Gary Neville was the best man, and the couple's son Brooklyn, then four months old, was the ring bearer.
The Beckhams' second son, Romeo James, was born on 1 September 2002; a third son, Cruz David, followed on 20 February 2005 in Madrid, Spain.
Beckham's marriage and former career as a singer have made her both the fifty-second richest woman in Britain and the six hundred and nineteenth richest person in Britain with husband David, with an estimated joint wealth of £112 million.
