Beckhams starting restaurant chain?

David and Victoria Beckham

David and Victoria Beckham are reportedly considering opening an Italian restaurant.

Soccer star David learnt to cook after taking lessons while playing for Italian team A.C. Milan. It’s claimed he and his fashion designer wife are now considering putting his knowledge to good use.

“David is obsessed with Italian cooking,” an insider told British magazine Heat. “Milan is one of Victoria’s favorite cities and she thinks she can design the theme and table wear. It could be a new strand of business for them.”

The couple have a lot on their hands at the moment, with David setting up a soccer club in Miami and Victoria gearing up for the opening of her first stand-alone store in London, UK.

She has also been battling constant questions about the possibility of a Spice Girls reunion to mark their 20th anniversary, and will be celebrating her 40th birthday on April 17.

The star is thought to be planning a big party for her special day, rumored to have a pink theme.

However, it’s been claimed her former bandmate Mel C might not be receiving an invitation. Mel recently spoke out about the possibility of the Spice Girls – also comprising of Mel B, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton – marking their two years in the industry, which is said to have irritated Victoria.

“Victoria feels like Mel C is winding her up and that this is a response to Vic’s last interview, when she said she wouldn’t perform with the girls again. Victoria is keen to move forward – she has made it really clear that she thinks it was an embarrassing time of her life and hates being reminded of it,” a source claimed.

Victoria has been clear about where her career is going now. While she has never been rude about her time in the girl band, she has no intention of getting up on stage again.

Although the five-piece performed at the London 2012 Olympic Games, last year Victoria was adamant she will not be picking up the microphone again.

“I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour. The day of the concert at Madison Square Gardens in New York, the other girls spent time relaxing in bed, shopping and in the gym before heading off to the sound check,” she recalled to Paris Vogue. “I arrived with three kids in tow in a really tight dress because I’d been in meetings all day.

“I put my bags and the children down, I picked up the mic and I sung. It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere.”
