Soccer ace David Beckham has lauded his wife VICTORIA for her "inner
strength" in helping him deal with the backlash following allegations he had
two extra-marital affairs.
The Real Madrid player is currently in Portugal playing in the EURO 2004
soccer tournament and is delighted his former SPICE GIRL wife brought sons
ROMEO and BROOKLYN to cheer him on.
And smitten David - who has denied sleeping with former PA REBECCA LOOS
and model SARAH MARBECK - credits Victoria with keeping their family together
as the press stories continue.
He says, "That's one of the reasons I married her. She has such inner
strength. Obviously she's beautiful, but she's such a strong person as well.
"She's the one who's kept us together as a family and I know for a fact
that she'll carry on taking the flak: we both will. I have a good strong
family, a good strong wife and two great children."
