David and Victoria Beckham are reportedly “petrified they might be super-spreaders” after secretly contracting the coronavirus in March, along with a number of their staff.

Cut back to early March and David and Victoria were pictured drinking and dancing at their eldest son’s 21st birthday at their Cotswolds home in London. The couple had just returned home from Los Angeles where they watched David’s football club Inter Miami FC play.

“They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries,” an anonymous source told The Sun. “They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion.”

The Beckhams had reportedly dropped £100,000 on the lavish birthday for Brooklyn which was attended by fiancee Nicola Peltz and a slew of celebrities. Dancing together on the dance floor, they appeared full of life and really happy. We hadn’t really seen them like this together in a long time.

A few days later, the family jetted off to Miami before flying back to Cotswold again where they spent lockdown. This where it is being reported that David, 45 and Victoria, 46, began developing symptoms. “It was an absolute nightmare scenario,” the source continued. “David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature. At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards and assistants fell ill—a couple of them very badly so.”

“Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks,” they added. “She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimize all future risk. Not only was she poorly in bed, she was also completely panicked. It was a rough few weeks.”

Concerned for a number of staff who had also contracted the virus, the Beckhams sent care packages to their team’s homes.

Making a full recovery, the couple reportedly got a swab and antibody test very recently before jetting off to Greece and Italy for a much-needed vacation.
