David Beckham Confesses He Wore Tight Trunks To Woo Victoria: ‘They Were Really Small But They Worked’

David Beckham and wife Victoria have been married for over a decade but the sportsman has admitted that he once resorted to wearing some very tight swimming trunks to impress his fashion lover spouse.

The former footballer is busy promoting his new swimwear line for H&M, enjoying a star-studded night out in London last night to celebrate the launch with the 1D boys in attendance.

While his new line includes a mixture of board shorts and smaller trunks, David has admitted he thinks the smaller the better when it comes to swimwear!

“Funnily enough I’ve always tended to go for the tighter, smaller trunks”, the hunk tells GQ. “I don’t know why. But it really depends what mood I’m in – sometime I wear ridiculously baggy shorts that you’ve not going to get a tan in. It’s down to my mood and the beach I’m on – or what age I am, of course!”

Admitting that a good pair of swimmers can impress a girl Becks adds: “When I first started going out with Victoria and we went away for the first time I remember I took a pair of small, tight, dark blue Gucci trunks with me – I was obviously trying to impress her. [laughs] They were really small, but they worked!”

With Victoria heading up her own hugely successful fashion line and David working on his own H&M collaborations, the couple’s children are also going into the family business with Brooklyn and Romeo both booking modelling jobs.

“I was on both shoots with the boys, and Romeo didn’t need much guidance at all”, the proud dad gushes of his boys. “Mario Testino did the shoot [for the Burberry campaign] and wanted him looking very natural. It was important he was seen as a kid because that’s exactly what he is, he’s 11-years-old. I guided Brooklyn a little bit more. He has that kind of look going on, so once he got into it he was great. They both really enjoyed it, but at the end of the day they get pictured every day (unfortunately) so in many ways it’s nothing out of the ordinary for them”.

David and his model boys may make up one of the famous families to ever come out of Britain. but the star admits that he still gets starstruck, recalling a recent incident where he ran into Jack Nicholson in a toilet at a Lakers game.

“He went to walk in the toilet as I was walking out. He turned to me and said “Alright, David?” I was blown away by the fact he even knew who I was!” Becks reveals.
