David Beckham is "very romantic".

The former soccer star loves to "surprise" his wife Victoria Beckham and she has revealed his commitment to family is what drew her to him in the first place.

She shared: "David is very romantic and we regularly do lovely things to surprise each other.

"The first time I met David, nearly 20 years ago, we were at a football match. After the game all the other players were having a drink with their friends and David was standing with his mum and dad and his younger sister Joanne. Family is important to him."

And family played a big part in his proposal as David asked Victoria's father for permission to get down on one knee.

She added: "When he proposed he asked my dad first, which is such a respectful thing to do."

The 41-year-old fashion designer - who has sons Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10 and daughter Harper, four, with the 40-year-old star - admits their work can mean they have periods of time away from each other but insists they will always "make time" for each other.

She told PEOPLE magazine: "Both of us have to travel with work, but we always make time for each other and time for the children. We always support each other and our family."
