The longtime married couple made a rare solo outing on Monday night at for the Christmas Haig Club House Party at Laylow, West London. Both kept their all-black outfits fashionably low-key, with Victoria, 44, choosing a sheer long-sleeve shirt and David, 43, opting for a burnt orange turtleneck to add a little spice to the look.
While Victoria and David tend to gush about each other on social media, the two mostly step out with at least one of their four kids — daughter Harper Seven, 7, and sons Cruz David, 13, Romeo James, 16, and Brooklyn Joseph, 19.
The soccer star recently told Lisa Wilkinson on Australia’s The Sunday Project that the marriage takes “hard work.” The two celebrated their 19th anniversary this summer after tying the knot at a sprawling castle in Ireland on July 4, 1999.
“To have been married for the amount of time that we have, it’s always hard work,” David, 43, said in a preview posted by the Mirror. “It becomes a little bit more complicated.”
David also mentioned the couple’s children: “Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference, and I’ve noticed that with my children,” he said. Reflecting on media attention, he added, “The thing we have to do is protect our children.”
Victoria recently told British Vogue that she ignores rumors about their marriage.
“People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years, so David and I are pretty used to ignoring the nonsense and just carrying on as normal,” she said. “But these things have a wider effect on the people around us, and that’s unfair.”
