David Beckham's sweet tattoo tribute to Victoria

DAVID Beckham has paid tribute to his wife Victoria with a new tattoo.

The 40-year-old retired soccer star got the number 99 inked on his little finger and shared a picture of the tattoo on Instagram with the caption: "99 was a good year for me."

David married fashion designer Victoria on July 4, 1999, and the couple have four children together, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and Harper, four.

However, the tattoo also refers to David's professional life as 1999 saw him win the treble - Premier League, FA Cup and the Champions League - with his then-club Manchester United.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that David is to star in Guy Richie's 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E'.

He will appear in the action adventure movie, directed by his pal Guy and starring Henry Cavill, about secret agents working to stop criminals using nuclear weapons.

A source said: "He was very grateful to Guy for getting him a small role and it was a great experience."

David plays the part of a projectionist who reveals the mission for the main characters in the film, set for release on August 1.

The insider told The Sun newspaper: "Becks gets the plot going and sets the scene for the rest of the movie.

"He only needed a day on set to film it so it didn't take too much time out of his schedule.

"Guy thinks it's great Becks is involved. It would make great viewing seeing him pop up as random characters in future."
