- It is interesting that his maternal grandfather was Jewish, and that David considers himself half-Jewish.
On this day in 1975, David Beckham was born in London.
It is interesting that his maternal grandfather was Jewish, and that David considers himself half-Jewish. However, he stated that during his childhood he attended Christian church with his parents and two sisters every week.
Although he grew up in London, his parents were fanatical Manchester United fans, so David inherited his feelings towards the club from them.
In 1999 David married the former Spice Girl Victoria Adams. They have three sons – Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James, and Cruz David – and one daughter – Harper Seven.
David Beckham has about 20 tattoos: on the right side a weeping Jesus Christ, an angel on his right shoulder, and on his back a winged Latin cross and an angel with spread wings.
On one hand he has the biblical quotation from the Song of Songs tattooed in Hebrew script: “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine, that shepherds among the lilies” (Song of Songs 6:3).
He also has the name of his wife Victoria tattooed in Hindi script, and the names of his four children in Latin.
