10. Love at First Sight
Even before David met Victoria, he knew she was one. He first noticed her when he and a teammate from Manchester United were watching TV in late 1996 and a Spice Girls video came on. Victoria was wearing a catsuit and David was immediately smitten. “I turned around to Gary and said, ‘That one there, that’s the girl I’m going to marry,’” he told W magazine. They met in February 1997 when she attended one of his games, but he was too shy to make a move. A couple of weeks later, she and another Spice Girl went to see another one of his games and he finally got her number and called her the next day and the rest is history.
