Victoria and David Beckham have been plagued by rumors of marital trouble lately, but there was nothing but love as they celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, July 4.

Both the designer, 44, and the retired soccer star, 43, shared photos from their anniversary dinner date in Paris, which appeared to be super-romantic with wine and handholding. While Victoria wrote, “I love u so much,” David called her “the most amazing wife & mummy.” Neither message seems to support the incessant split gossip.



Their Instagram Stories were also filled with snapshots of their cozy meal. A bottle of wine was captioned, “Special wine for a very special day,” by the former Spice Girl. They enjoyed dessert, which arrived with a happy anniversary message (in French), by candlelight.

The Beckhams have been the target of divorce talk for pretty much the last 19 years. (They’ve admitted to ups and downs, with David saying last year he had made “mistakes.”) But chatter escalated again in June leading to a rep for the pair issuing a statement. “What nonsense,” said the rep. “Journalist Chinese whispers and fake news fueled by social media. There is no impending statement, no divorce!”

A lot of attention was being paid to their anniversary date and how they’d spend it, so their very public — and romantic — celebration seems to be a very big message to the world.
