The ultimate birthday gift! Victoria Beckham cosies up to shirtless husband David as she celebrates her 40th birthday at luxury Grand Canyon resort
She’s been peppering her social media platforms with childhood snapshots as she continues to celebrate her 40th birthday with husband David Beckham and their four children at an exotic desert location.
Returning to Twitter on Thursday evening, Victoria Beckham posted a loving, self-taken shot in which she reclines with a shirtless Becks during their current break on a luxury resort in southern Utah, close to the Grand Canyon in neighbouring Arizona.
With her husband’s prodigious tattoos on full display, the fashion designer – who sports a casual Adidas baseball cap – looks understandably content as she nestles into his naked chest.
An accompanying message reads; ‘Having a wonderful day with my family x vb.’

Day with the family: Victoria Beckham posted an intimate shot with husband David Beckham as she celebrates her 40th birthday on a luxury resort close to the Grand Canyon in Utah
The day itself included a brisk walk around the Canyon, during which she posted another shot for her huge following in which she takes in the breath-taking view while resting on a large rock.
The scenery had clearly worked its wonders on Victoria, who tweeted: ‘Magical day hiking in the Grand Canyon with my babies x vb.’
In a reflective mood for much of the day, the former Spice Girl posted a string of flashback shots from her childhood – amongst them a photo with brother Christian and sister Louise, with the message: ‘To my little brother and sister, I love u both from the bottom of my heart, lots of kisses, your big sister x Victoria x.’

The entire family are thought to be accompanied by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay – a close friend of the Beckham’s – and his brood for the trip to Utah.
A source told The Sun: ‘Victoria wanted family time so it has been kept very intimate and low key. Their lives are 100 miles an hour so she wanted to be away from the limelight and city life as they have that all the time.
'She loves being active outdoors too, again something they can’t do together very often. There were strict instructions for no-one to get hassled by work so somewhere like Utah where there’s ample space is perfect. They are staying at an exclusive resort there.’
