David Beckham has unveiled the extent of the damage inflicted upon his Cotswolds residence by Storm Henk, where wind gusts reached up to 94mph in certain parts of the country.
In an Instagram Stories post, the former footballer disclosed that one of the trees on his property succumbed to the fierce winds. Despite his disappointment, Beckham expressed relief that the damage wasn’t more severe. In his caption, he shared, “Could have been worse. Still gutted,” concluding the post with a tearful emoji.
Fortunately, the storm spared the father-of-four’s new chickens, as evidenced by a clip showing Beckham feeding his flock. In a light-hearted tone, he remarked, “In other news,” accompanied by a chicken sticker.
Over the Christmas period, the Beckhams divided their time between Miami and their £12 million Cotswolds abode. The 48-year-old football legend, wearing a festive Santa hat and a button-up shirt, appeared joyful as he carved the turkey for his family.
Their Grade II-listed farmhouse, transformed into an expansive mansion, was adorned with Christmas decorations, providing a picturesque setting for their festive gathering.
A clip shared by Victoria showcased the family’s holiday cheer, featuring Santa Claus and the grand Christmas tree in their barn-style mansion. Adding to the festive atmosphere, David and his children donned matching silk pyjamas and Santa hats.
Continuing a family tradition, they left snacks out for Santa’s return. Victoria shared these moments on Instagram, along with a heartfelt message for son Brooklyn. On her Instagram Stories, she offered further glimpses into their celebrations, including festive drinks cooled in a makeshift ice bucket – a saucepan, with Victoria captioning, “Keeping it real with a saucepan as an ice bucket” alongside a heart emoji.
