She is best known today as Mrs. David Beckham—and regularly hounded by the paparazzi because of it—but the fact is Victoria is one hot dame, and we wouldn’t mind a bit if she decided to be our English teacher.
Born Victoria Adams in proper Hertfordshire, England, Victoria joined the all-girl group Touch in 1994, along with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm. The group changed its name to the Spice Girls, and its first single, “Wannabe,” shot to number one in both the UK and the U.S. It would be followed by eight other number one hits from two legendary albums, Spice and Spiceworld. The group was one of the most successful pop acts of the ’90s, selling more than 55 million records worldwide, but after their third album, Forever, lasted anything but, the Spice Girls stopped recording, and Victoria began work on a solo career, spawning singles you don’t remember, like “Out of Your Mind” and “Not Such an Innocent Girl.”
In 1997 Victoria began dating Manchester United footballer David Beckham, and on July 4, 1999 in Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland, Posh and Becks tied the knot. Victoria has given birth to three Beckham boys: Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, and both Brooklyn’s and Romeo’s godfather is Elton John. (Their godmother is also Elton John. Kidding! It’s Elizabeth Hurley.) In 2007, Victoria and the lads moved to Beverly Hills, California, after David signed to play soccer for the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Looking ahead, you might find Victoria pregnant again: Both she and David have stated they’d like to have another child—particularly a girl. There could also be another reality show or another book, and there’s a planned reunion tour for the Spice Girls. Obviously, Victoria has many things left to accomplish before she becomes Old Spice.
