David Beckham reveals wife Victoria has eaten the same food every day for 25 years

David Beckham laments that wife Victoria has eaten the same dish for 25 years – grilled fish and steamed vegetables.

And while the player enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and sampling a variety of food, he lamented that health fanatics would ‘rarely deviate’ from his set menu.

Footballer David, 46, revealed that Spice Girl Victoria, 47, has only tried other food once — while pregnant with 10-year-old daughter Harper.

Meanwhile, the sports star celebrated the Chinese Lunar New Year by cooking sweet and sour mandarin fish – though it doesn’t seem like his wife fried the fish and steamed the vegetables.

Discussing Victoria’s very specific eating habits on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast, David explained: ‘I tend to be quite passionate about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to know. Somebody try it.

‘Unfortunately I am married to someone who has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years. Since I have met her, she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will hardly move away from it.’

‘The only time she’s probably ever shared something that’s on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper and it was the most amazing thing.

‘It was one of my favorite evenings. I don’t remember what it was but I know he hasn’t eaten it since.’

David also admitted that he prefers to be home alone because he can experiment in the kitchen.

He told the podcast: ‘Recently I was in isolation for five days because I had just moved to Italy so I came back and Victoria had a parents’ party in the last days and I really couldn’t go into it.

‘So everyone was out of the house and I secretly loved it. I’ve literally had two of the most amazing cuts of meat ever. There was a T-bone and I had some English Wagyu.

‘I poured a glass of the most amazing red wine, which I treated myself to as I looked forward to watching football in the afternoon on my own. So I set up a barbecue.

‘I had a nice tomato and shallot salad and meat and a glass of wine and it was the most wonderful meal I’ve had in a long time. They are my most wonderful afternoons and evenings.’

Victoria has previously admitted that she will not eat food cooked in oil, butter or sauce and that she does not eat red meat or dairy.

Speaking to the same River Cafe Table 4 podcast, the designer said: ‘For most restaurants I’m probably their worst nightmare. I like to season some steamed vegetables, some balsamic vinegar, and then myself.

‘I love things that are cooked very simply. I don’t like oil or butter or sauce. This is where I get even more boring in the food department.’

Victoria also admitted that her comfort food was a piece of whole grain toast with salt and that she celebrates her birthday with a fruit cake.

She said: ‘I love whole grain toast with salt. This is the carbohydrate that makes you feel relaxed and I love salt.’
