The Beckhams renewed their wedding vows in a home ceremony


David and Victoria Beckham’s marriage has been plagued with rumors of infidelity and other issues for years. Personally, I think there was truth to those stories, but they have never publicly commented on it… until now? David recently gave an interview to BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs show and admitted to “trouble” from within the glass Beckham Palace. They renewed their vows to signify their commitment.

David Beckham has revealed he put his marriage woes behind him by renewing his vows with wife Victoria in a secret ceremony at their home.

The couple’s wedding was much less flashy than their first, as they invited just six guests to celebrate with them.

He admitted the couple renewed their vows during a simple ceremony in front of just six guests.

David, 41, admitted he and Victoria, 42, have suffered a number of problems since they first tied the knot back in 1999.

But the couple has managed to work through their issues and are now happier than ever.
He insisted they decided to renew their vows as a sign of their ongoing commitment to each other.

David said: “We did throw a lot at it (the first wedding). We have renewed our vows since then and it was a lot more private, there was about six people there in our house.”

He added: “Of course you make mistakes over the years, we all know marriage is difficult at times and it’s about working through it.

“Whenever we’ve come up against tough times, we know each other better than anybody knows us so we talk.”

I love David pointing out their first wedding was a bit much. It was – you know, like in the way a hurricane can make things somewhat damp. They sat on thrones, for heaven’s sake! When speaking of the first wedding, he conceded that of their outfits (yes, plural) Victoria looked nice but that his were a touch comical. An all purple suit with matching top hat comical? Ya’ think?!?

I’m the resident Beckham apologist, so you know where I’m going to come down on this. I planned on calling them out for renewing their vows because someone must be in the doghouse (again). But then I read it was in the past tense and David never mentioned when it took place. He references six people in the house which could be just them and their kids or it could have been pre-Harper and some friends, I don’t know. But if they worked their crap out and had a small, intimate vow renewal placing the value on the vows and not the pageantry then good for them. I’m not even going to speculate on whether they kept them since but I have always maintained that they are a happy family – money, privilege and nepotism aside. And according to David, I’m not wrong. When asked whether they stay together just for the Beckham brand, David poo-poos the idea, stating, “Of course not. We stay together because we love each other. We stay together because we have four amazing children.” I’ll stand alone in this but I am willing to take him at his word.

In other Beckham family news, David was trolling Brooklyn online again – this time during Brooklyn’s Instagram Live video when David popped up in the comments with statements like “U should be in school” and “That’s my shirt”. The Beckham parents’ trolling on their kids’ social media = #myparentigngoals

    I believe in their marriage as well. Fame and fortune aside, they strike me as two people who genuinely love each other. It’s cool that he can admit they’ve been through some stuff, and it’s nice to know they’ve been able to work it out.

    • Tris says:

      I also think they are really lovely parents. They always seem to be touching and kissing their kids. It’s quite wonderful. Honk for the Becks (and for something nice during this shitstorm of a week)!

    Love the poses in the runway audience photo. The Beckham Last Supper, starring Anna Wintour as Judas Iscariot!

    Meh, a vow renewal is basically a last ditch effort to saving a marriage. Countdown to the divorce.

  4. Bobafelty says:

    Yeah, vow renewal us usually begins a countdown to divorce. Plus they already have their ‘save the marriage’ youngest kid. Good luck to them (I’m fond of them), but not looking good.

  5. Courtney says:

    traditionally the vow renewal is done to mark a significant anniversary like 25 or 50 years most often done at 25 years and can be repeated at 50 if the couple makes it that long. doing it at 18 years seems a bit attention starved for example Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward are known to have renewed their wedding vows for their 25th anniversary in January 1983 and likely also did for their 50th in January 2008 less than a year before Paul passed away

    • Unicorn says:

      Yes, doing it at 18 is weird. My guess is they were basically separated and living their own lives and decided to give it one last college try. Their renewal may not have been flashy but they are not above trying to get attention for it otherwise we wouldn’t even know about it. Because frankly their marital problems are no one’s business yet they keep telling everyone everything.

    • spugzbunny says:

      They don’t say when they did a vow renewal. Just that they did one at some point in the past. It could have been at 15 years or even 10.

  6. Andrea says:

    He cheated with the nanny—and I think they probably did a vow renewal after that…as in promise to not cheat again. Katie Price and her husband #3 did the same thing after he cheated on her with her TWO long time best friends! Victoria has always come across much like Gwen Stefani, severely low self esteem and clinging to her man for dear life. I always have felt sorry for her.

  7. Tanakasan says:

    renewing vows – always a red flag that divorce is coming.

  8. blonde555 says:

    Yup! Always get goosebumps when I hear about these “vow renewals”. Divorce is close behind.

  9. Lucy2 says:

    I agree with those who think that’s in general is a red flag. But hopefully they are the exception.

  10. LeManda says:

    Ugh. I’ve been considering doing a vow renewal since we never had a proper wedding reception. Re: court house shot gun wedding. But now you’re all making me sad with your assumptions of why they’re doing it.

    • Dani says:

      Lemanda- a vow renewal is a lovely event when done for the right reasons. If it’s meaningful and important to you, then do it! 😊
