David Beckham is flooded with heartfelt messages as he celebrates his 47th birthday.
The former England football captain celebrated his birthday on May 2, but, of course, his special day didn’t go under the radar, as wife Victoria Beckham took to Instagram to pay tribute to her husband of 23 years.
The Spice Girls singer posted two different photo reels on her Instagram account; The first was a series of photos of him and his wife, while the second was a series of cute photos of David with their kids, Harper, Cruz, Romeo and Brooklyn.
The first set of photos captures David and Victoria on the beach, while the second they are on a boat soaking up the sun.
The post was captioned: “I love you so much @davidbeckham you are the most incredible husband one could wish for and I feel really blessed. You are my everything x I love you so much x Happy Birthday.”
A follow-up post shared by the Beckham brood read: “Happy birthday @davidbeckham the best daddy !!! We all love you so much!! Lots of kisses from all of us!!! Kisses @ brooklynpeltzbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven.”
Victoria went a step further and also posted a collection of images to her Instagram Story, which stays on the photo-sharing site for 24 hours.
One photo shows a football player feeding a pig with a carrot in his mouth, followed by David showing off his toned abs on the beach in a pair of swimming shorts on vacation.
Victoria captioned the final photo: “Not bad for 47! I’m lucky!”
The Instagram photos combined have garnered over 816,000 likes, as well as hundreds of comments from friends, family, and fans.
David’s family also paid tribute to his father on his special day.
Romeo shared a photo of himself and his father on his photo-sharing site, along with the caption: “Happy birthday dad, I love you so much thank you for everything, best day.”
While Cruise uploaded a picture of David snowboarding before falling into the snow on his Instagram account.
“Happy birthday @davidbeckham I love you have an amazing day,” he wrote, although a different photo was posted on Cruise’s Instagram Story with a giant birthday cake in front of David.
Although Brooklyn has remained silent on social media so far.
