Posh and Becks is the media inspired nickname for the English celebrity supercouple Victoria Beckham (née Victoria Adams, "Posh Spice" of England's Spice Girls) and David Beckham (a leading footballer).
"Posh and Becks" term Edit
"Posh and Becks" as a phrase was included in the Collins Concise English Dictionary in 2001. The term "Posh and Becks" is commonly used by newspapers and other media, especially in headlines, and has become an expression that is widely used and recognised within popular culture in the United Kingdom.
The term "Posh and Becks" has also found its way into rhyming slang, referring to "sex". This has been noted by Victoria on several occasions on television such as her interview with Ali G on Comic Relief and Being Victoria Beckham when she was interviewing Elton John, where she remarks that people have chanted, her husband David Beckham being an footballer where fans shout at her, "Posh takes it up the a**e!"
Posh&Becks is the name of an experimental poster exhibition in London.
Posh and Becks couple Edit
Posh and Becks started dating in 1997, which led to the use of the term by the popular media. Their celebrity wedding took place in 1999 and the home in Hertfordshire, England, that they bought shortly afterwards has been nicknamed by the media as "Beckingham Palace" (a portmanteau of Buckingham Palace and the name Beckham).
The couple have recently turned their attention to the US and are the subject of a 2007 eponymous joint biography Posh & Becks.
Posh and Becks have three children, three boys and a girl. The eldest is Brooklyn Joseph Beckham (born 4 March 1999 in London, England), the second is Romeo James Beckham (born 1 September 2002 in London, England), Cruz David Beckham (born 20 February 2005 in Madrid, Spain), and the youngest, Harper Seven Beckham (born 10 July 2011 in Los Angeles, California).
