David and Victoria Beckham shared a romantic anniversary dinner despite recent rumours of an imminent split.

David, 43, and Victoria, 44, have been married for 19 years, having met back in the late 1990s where he was playing for Manchester United and she was at the height of her fame with the Spice Girls.

Despite rumours of affairs over the years – most famously, the allegations of an extra-marital relationship with family nanny Rebecca Loos – the ex-England captain has always denied any allegations he’s ever cheated on his wife, and the pair appear stronger than ever.

The ex-footballer shared a photo on his Instagram of the couple sipping of a $2,600 bottle of wine.

“19 Years WOW … (sic),” David captioned the photo. “This time 19 years ago I was dressed from head to toe in purple  … Happy anniversary to the most amazing wife & mummy … Love You x.”

Only last month did rumours swirl about the couple splitting up, forcing the pair to release a statement denying the story.

“This is just fake social media news,” a rep for the couple said. “This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.

“There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news.”

After spending their early years in England, the Beckhams then moved to the US, where David further pursued his sports career with LA Galaxy and have remained there ever since; after raising four children, Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and six-year-old Harper.
