David Beckham had one person to thank for his ‘amazing,’ star-studded 40th birthday celebration in Morocco: wife Victoria. The former football star shared a gorgeous snap of the two getting close on Instagram during the milestone party.

Thanks to my beautiful wife for such an amazing day x,” David wrote alongside the photo, which was taken in front of a swimming pool at the luxury six-star Amanjena resort in Marrakech where his party was held.

David was joined by family and friends for his landmark birthday, including Gordon Ramsay, Dave Gardner and his partner Liv Tyler, Eva Longoria, and Victoria’s former Spice Girls bandmates Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Mel C.

A number of photos have emerged from the party weekend, including one Victoria shared of herself and her husband posing together at dusk, their arms wrapped around each other. “Special evening with family and friends x #DB40 x,” she captioned the picture.

Victoria wasn’t the only family member to upload pictures from the party; the couple’s eldest child Brooklyn Beckham also took to Instagram, posting a picture of himself with family friend Eva – and she returned the favour, sharing a fun photo of herself with Brooklyn on her account.

The Desperate Housewives star clearly had a ball at the party, and later shared a snapshot of Emma Bunton and Mel C larking around together as they reunited for David’s big night.

Also sharing pictures from the celebrations was Liv, who recently welcomed a son Sailor with Dave Gardner – David’s best friend. The actress shared a photo of her man – "My love" – posing in front of an ornate door, and another taken from inside the luxury resort.

David marked his 40th birthday on Saturday by joining social media website Instagram. He posted a picture of himself lying in bed, with the caption: "Good morning and hello! It’s great to finally be on Instagram, been a long time coming but I can’t wait to start sharing all my special moments with you.
