Victoria and David Beckham celebrated their 19th anniversary yesterday and the happy couple picked the most perfect location to mark the milestone.

What better place to celebrate your marriage than Paris, the city of love.

The doting couple jetted off to Paris where they enjoyed a romantic dinner and they certainly looked loved-up.

They have been showing a united front since divorce rumours started circulating online last month.

They both shared a beautiful photo from their anniversary dinner that has certainly melted our hearts.

Victoria simply captioned her photo:”19 years!!! X I love u so much x”

David gushed about Victoria on his account, saying: “9 Years WOW … This time 19 years ago I was dressed from head to toe in purple … Happy anniversary to the most amazing wife & mummy … Love You x @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven”

Victoria and David tied the knot in a stunning ceremony at Luttrellstown Castle, located just outside of Dublin.

The fashion designer donned a striking Vera Wang ball gown for her big day, with David opting for an all-white three-piece suit

They were joined by their eldest son Brooklyn, who also wore an all-white outfit to match his parents. How adorable.

They were also joined by over 200 guests, including Victoria’s bandmates Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown.

David and Victoria danced to It Had To Be You for their first dance as a married couple.

Happy anniversary to the Beckhams!


Victoria Beckham has been rocking the pavements of the French capital this week.

Paris is playing host to fashion week, which means tight schedules and a lot of running around.

All the high fashion seems to have caught up with one member of the Beckham family, and Victoria was having none of it – rookie mistake!

The mum-of-four called out her son's sleepy antics like the lady boss she is.

The 44-year-old took to her Instagram story and owned Brooklyn. 

The teen was seen trying to sleep on route to London via the Eurostar. 

Victoria captioned the snap: "Love spending quality time with @brooklynbeckham."

To our sheer delighted, the fun didn't stop there as Victoria added another photo, just in case Brooklyn wasn't mortified enough the first time. 

The fashion queen asked her 21m followers if she should take her the 19-year-old's sleeping personally.

It's fair to say, Brooklyn won't be falling asleep in his mother's company again. 


Is there anything more beautiful than Paris in the spring?

The cherry blossom flowers in the Père Lachaise, the trees burgeoning along the Seine, and the Parisians flooding the terrace of cafes and bars craving for some sun rays… 

While a glass of rosé or a fresh beer are go-to beverages for French people when the summer comes, Paris also has plenty of cocktail bars where you can try delicious and incredibly Instagrammable drinks to celebrate the City of Light.

It's the time of year when our minds are on sun, sea and city breaks. 

If you're anything like the rest of Ireland, you've been taking refuge from the reality of being back to work, eating healthily and battling storm Eleanor by browsing flight prices online.

It's a well know fact that the French are not embarrassed by the human form, and with a host of beaches, campsites and pools dedicated to those you prepare to love their lives sans clothing, a restaurant made especially for nude diners was the next natural step.

According to Le Parisen, the aptly named O'naturel restaurant opened to the public last Friday after successfully it welcomed the Paris Naturist Association for dinner on Thursday night. 

On the surface, O'naturel looks like any other Parisian establishment. The space is large enough to hold up to 40 customers and the menu offers a classic array of French dishes – oh, and of course, there's plenty of wine too.

As guests enter the premises they are directed into a cloakroom where they can strip off and store their clothes, before taking a seat and settling in for one of the most intimate dining experiences the city has to offer.

“We propose you to taste a bistronomic and refined cuisine in a sober and friendly environment,” says the restaurant.

“Whether you are already a naturist or want to try you will be delighted to experience this.”

So, if you're planning a trip to the French capital and fancy trying something a little bit different, you can book your table at O'naturel here.



A thirteen year old girl has died after a driver rammed his car into the shop front of a pizzeria in Paris, France.  

Up to 12 other people were injured, including the teenager's younger brother. 

He is currently being treated in hospital for his injuries, which have been described as life threatening. 

The driver was immediately arrested at the scene.

One trail of investigation that the police are taking is that the man was attempting to commit suicide.

The driver was not previously known to police. 

Parisian security officials have said that there is currently no evidence that this incident is linked to terrorism. 


Bookworms unite!

Emma Watson is at it again and this time she's been busy hiding copies of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale in mystery locations around Paris.

The distopian novel has experienced somewhat of a resurgence in recent times thanks to its critically acclaimed TV adaptation, starring Elisabeth Moss, so it makes sense that Emma, an avid reader and women's rights advocate, would want to spread the book's feminist message.

The title also just so happens to be this month's selection in the actor's online book club, Our Shared Shelf.  

Emma's post sparked a huge scavenger hunt across the French capital, and lucky fans have taken to Twitter to post their findings.  

We can't help but feel insanely jealous of everyone in Paris right now. 



A security operation is currently underway at the Champs-Elysees district in Paris.

Several news outlets have confirmed that Parisian police say a "major security operation" is unfolding in the area.

It is not yet known whether it is terrorist-related.

According to The Daily Mail, police have pinned a man down in the district.

Another report by AFP states that a car rammed into a police van before bursting into flames.

This is a breaking story. More to follow.



French police have shot a man who attacked an officer with a hammer outside the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The man has been identified as being an Algerian student according to the identification he was carrying, and was wounded but not killed in the shooting.

The French Interior Minister said the attacker shouted 'this is for Syria,' before being taken down by police, according to RTÉ.

The man attempted to attack police with a hammer outside the iconic Notre Dame cathedral, and was later found to also be armed with kitchen knives.

Hundreds of people took refuge in the cathedral and nearby cafes, with many of them updating the public via Twitter as to what was going on. 

A counter-terrorism investigation has been launched in the aftermath of the attack. 

The attack came just three days after the tragic London Bridge attack which claimed the lives of seven people. 



French police have reportedly shot a man outside the Notre Dame in Paris after he tried to attack them with a hammer.

Paris police say they are attending an incident at Notre Dame and are warning the public to stay away, according to Reuters.

Eyewitness accounts claim that gunshots were heard in the area before the crowd scattered. 

Reports claim that tourists and religious worshippers are trapped within the Cathedral. 

Those inside are believed to be safe.

Police have begun to search a home in a Paris suburb following a gun attack on the Champs-Elysees last night.

The Islamic State promptly claimed responsibility for the attack, killing one police officer and wounding three others.

Officers on the scene, returned fire and the attacker was shot dead.

Eyewitnesses say the attacker pulled up alongside a stationary car and fired through the window.

Investigators searched a home in eastern Paris early this morning. Neighbours in the quiet, middle-class area expressed surprise and the searches.

According to the Associated Press, French authorities have identified the attacker as a 39-year-old male, but officers are continuing to explore the possibility that he may not have acted alone.

President Francois Hollande held an emergency meeting with the Prime Minister last night and a meeting of the defence council is due to take place this morning.

The attacks have sparked calls for Sunday’s French presidential election to be postponed. 



A man has been shot dead in Orly Airport in Paris after grabbing a gun from an anti-terror officer. 

The man was a radicalised Muslim and was known to French intelligence services, according to a police source.

The attacker took the female officer's weapon before seeking refuge in a store. 

The airport has been evacuated, and flights are being diverted to Paris' other airport, Charles de Gaulle.

"We were sitting in Hall Three when all of a sudden people started running and telling us to run with them," Ellie Guttetter, 18, from the US told the BBC.

"The people running were passengers and flight attendants. It was pretty chaotic and everyone was panicking – it was scary."
