David Beckham has admitted his relationship with wife Victoria is ‘always hard work’.
In a preview for his upcoming interview on Australian TV show The Sunday Project, the former soccer player said things become ‘little more complicated’ when two people have been married for a long time.
‘When you’ve been married for the amount of time that we have, it’s always hard work,’ David said in the teaser trailer. ‘It becomes a little more complicated’.
It comes weeks after David’s absence from a Vogue magazine cover shoot featuring his family sparked rumours of trouble in paradise.
The cover image, which showed Victoria with the couple’s four children – Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper – seemingly presented her as a single mother.
Back in June, unsubstantiated rumours circulated on social media that David and Victoria were heading for a divorce.
But the power couple were quick to dismiss the reports, with a spokesperson branding the speculation a ‘crock of s**t’.
After tying the knot in Ireland in 1999, David and Victoria have spent years defending the state of their relationship and denying claims they are on the brink of divorce.
The couple, who began dating in early 1997, share four children – Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and seven year-old Harper.
The David Beckham interview is the latest in a string of high-profile exclusives for veteran journalist Lisa Wilkinson, who joined The Sunday Project at the start of the year.
