With much of the world on lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, David Beckham and Victoria Beckham couldn't go quite as all-out for their anniversary on Saturday, July 4, as they did last year, when they jetted off to Paris for a private, champagne-filled tour of Versailles and a decadent dinner at Guy Savoy.
But the power couple more than made up for it with the gushing words of love — and great throwback pics — they each shared on Instagram to mark the occasion.
"Well about 23 years ago I was sat in a room with Gary Neville and the spice girls were on the TV and I turned around to him and said 'ohhhh I like that one in the little black catsuit' 😄," David, 45, captioned his photo and video montage of memories from the pair's two-plus decades together.
"Who would have thought that all these years later we are celebrating 21 years of marriage and have 4 of the most beautiful and perfect kids.. Thank you & Happy Anniversary I Love You ♥️," he added alongside the post, which featured pics of him and his wife through the years, with a few Posh Spice performance moments tossed in for good measure.
Victoria, 46, shared a similar — if less Spice Girls-centric — montage the same day. In addition to shouting out their kids — Brooklyn, 21, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and Harper, 8 — she made a point of looking to the future in her caption, which read, "Happy Anniversary @davidbeckham ❤️❤️❤️. Can't believe it has been 21 years since we said 'I do'. Four children, four dogs, so much laughter and I love you more each day. xxxxxx."
Victoria and David were together for a year and a half before he popped the question, according to People.
Victoria, of course, said "yes," and the two married in the summer of 1999 at Ireland's Luttrellstown Castle. Their then-4-month-old son Brooklyn was their ring bearer, the outlet notes.
All three boys weighed in on social media in honor of their parents' milestone over the weekend, with Brooklyn and Cruz both sharing '90s-era photos of their mom and dad.
"Happy anniversary mum and dad ❤️ I love you soooo much ❤️❤️," wrote Brooklyn, who's moved on from his ring bearer duties to become a model and photographer.
Though their actual anniversary was on Saturday, David and Victoria got a jump on their celebration earlier in the week.
"It's me and @davidbeckham's 21st wedding anniversary this weekend so I'm getting ready for date night!" Victoria shared with her followers on Thursday. "What do you think I should wear? x vb."
The designer didn't reveal whether she went with her followers' fashion recommendations or the gorgeous white suit she wore in the photo accompanying her question.
But what fun is romance without a little mystery?
