An emotional David Beckham brings his wife, Posh Spice, to tears as he thanks her and their three sons during his acceptance speech for his Lifetime Achievement award.

Victoria Beckham was overcome with emotion as her husband, all-star soccer player David Beckham, accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year Awards on Sunday night (Dec. 19). The couple’s three sons — Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5 — were also in attendance, cheering on their dad as he received a standing ovation.

It’s a fun day in the sun for David and his boys!

A very gracious and teary-eyed David, 35, thanked Victoria and his family for supporting him over the years. “Of course, I want to thank my wife and my children,” he said. “Not only has she given me three amazing boys, but the support she’s given me and she is truly an inspiration for me every single day. So Victoria, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz — thank you.” I’m not going to lie, I got a little choked up watching David’s speech!

“Words can’t express how proud I am of David,” Victoria tweeted. “A truly wonderful and very emotional evening. I’m so proud of my little men too!!!” It was amazing see the true love and admiration Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz have for their dad, as well as the wonderful relationship between David and Victoria. They honestly seem like a wonderful family.
