David and Victoria Beckham each post pictures of their dads in cute Father’s Day throwbacks – The Sun

DAVID and Victoria Beckham posted pictures of their dads in cute Father's Day throwbacks today.

David, 45, paid tribute to his dad Ted, 71, with a photo of them together that was taken when he was a young lad.

Doting Ted rests a hand on his son's shouler in the black-and-white snap as David smiles, proudly clad in a Manchester United woolly hat.

He clutches a football in the photo, which the star captioned today: "Happy Father’s Day dad x love you ♥️ thank you for giving me the drive and work ethic to succeed."

Victoria, 46, gave her dad a similar dose of love when she shared a photo of Anthony Adams holding her as a baby.

She typed alongside the photo: "Happy Father’s Day Xx I love u so much xxx"

David's dad Ted got engaged in March, 18 years after his painful divorce from the footy star's mum Sandra.

The pair divorced in 2002 after 32 years of marriage.

It happened around the time David was sold to Real Madrid by Manchester United following a fallout with manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

In his autobiography Ted blamed the fame surrounding the Beckham family for the split.

He also revealed it hit his three children hard.

"David has spoken about how hard our splitting up was for him – it was tough for all our children," he wrote.

"I know they were all pretty much grown up by the time we got divorced but it was still a heck of a shock for them.

"The last thing I wanted was for them to take sides. The problems lay between Sandra and me, not with any of them."

He's now engaged to solicitor Hilary Meredith and the pair announced the news in a joint statement.

It reads: "While there are far more important things going on in the world right now, we are thrilled to say that we are happily engaged.

"Stay safe everyone."

In December David's wife Victoria clashed with Ted after Hilary's daughter, 27, was blocked from attending son Cruz's christening.

A source said Victoria was "wary" of letting "outsiders" in.
