When David saw the Spice Girl's music video "Say You'll Be There," he requested a meeting with Victoria at a Manchester United soccer game. It was history from there, as David proposed to Posh shortly after with a three-carat, marquise-cut diamond engagement ring. Who would say no to that ring -- and face!

Victoria and David may look like the perfect pair, but their relationship turned rocky when David's former assistant, Rebecca Loos, claimed that she had an affair with the soccer stud. David denied the allegations. “The simple truth is that I am very happily married, have a wonderful wife and two very special kids," he said in a statement. "There is nothing that any third party can do to change these facts.”
