Reports have revealed Becks' plans for a 20th wedding Anniversary gift to Victoria and we are SO jealous!
David Beckham is reportedly planning on buying his wife Victoria an ISLAND for their 20th anniversary.
The retired footballer plans to mark two decades since he first started dating the 43-year-old former Spice Girl in an extravagant way and is believed to be eyeing up a number of private islands as a gift for his wife.
According to sources, 42-year-old David - who has three sons Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, and Cruz, 12, as well as five-year-old daughter Harper with his spouse - has all but settled on the 250-acre island of Bird Cay, in the South Berry Islands of Nassau.
But buying an entire private island doesn't come cheap and this particular patch of paradise which will reportedly set him back a cool £7 million should he decide to splurge.
The decision to look into a private island reportedly comes as Victoria - who was known as Posh Spice during her time with the ‘Wannabe’ hitmakers - “craves normality” for her family and wants to be able to enjoy a vacation without being hounded by paparazzi.
Fair enough! We certainly wouldn't want paparazzi following us around in our bikinis!
A source told The Daily Star: “The Beckhams, particularly Posh, crave normality for their family times. Photos of Victoria in her bikini are incredibly rare because she is now very conscious about her body.
“So David wanted to give her that gift of privacy to mark two decades since they first started dating, a place where she can be totally relaxed.
“They love being on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island, so for David this was the logical next step. The Caribbean Islands are incredible, so they really are spoilt for choice, but Bird Cay is looking like the one.”
The island in question is said to include 4.75 miles of water frontage, with a stunning historic two-storey main residence which overlooks the ocean, as well as an extra five waterfront cottages.
The current owner of Bird Cay said of the property: “[It is] quite simply a tropical paradise tailor-made for a business retreat, a family compound or a stunning island resort.”
According to website Grenadine Villas, which is advertising the island as for sale, the plot of land is described as "4.75 miles of water frontage, sandy beaches, clear crystal waters, proximity to the US, perfect climate, lush tropical vegetation"
