David Beckham gave his son and daughter-in-law an incredibly generous wedding present – but was left with a major regret.

Last month, billionaire heiress Nicola Peltz was welcomed to the family after tying the knot with the eldest son Brooklyn Beckham.

A large number of famous faces from the UK and across the pond watched the young couple get married at an extravagant ceremony in her family’s £76 million beach house in Florida.

Brooklyn’s dad and mum Victoria felt incredibly proud as they watched their son marry the love of his life in a bash that reportedly cost a whopping £3 million to put on.

So it won’t come as much of a surprise to hear that the newlyweds got some rather expensive gifts, although they had generously asked their guests to donate to help those affected by the crisis in Ukraine instead of buying pressies.

That request was ignored by David, who is celebrating his 47th birthday today, as he got the happy couple an electric 1954 Jaguar.

The baby blue XK140, which was converted to electric by restoration and electrification company Lunaz, was driven to the ceremony by David.

The car was the result of a 120 strong team of craftspeople, designers and technicians and was built entirely in-house at Silverstone.

David Lorenz, Founder & CEO of Lunaz said: “In creating this beautiful, electrified Jaguar XK140, we are honored to bridge the gap between David Beckham’s professional life, where he is an investor in Lunaz and his family life.

“This remarkable car is the perfect gift to his son Brooklyn and daughter-in-law, Nicola on their wedding day. In every respect, this extraordinary electric classic car by Lunaz symbolizes a bright, positive future.”

The former England captain and wife Victoria rocked up to Nicola’s parents’ Palm Beach home in the vehicle and surprised Brooklyn and his bride by handing the keys.

Shortly after they tied the knot, the newlyweds took their new motor out for a spin around the block.

It brought back memories of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who drove off from their wedding reception in an electrified Jaguar.

However, it seems David has started to regret the decision as he jokingly revealed he wished he had kept the car.

While posting a birthday message to wife Victoria, David shared a snap of him driving the Jaguar and Posh Spice sat in the passenger seat.

“Should have kept this car, it’s soooo good,” he jokingly wrote, followed by a laughing emoji. He added: “@lunazdesign, please make me one. Happy birthday mama, @victoriabeckham.”

David wasn’t the only one who splashed out on a present, as his mum Sandra also couldn’t resist getting Nicola a gift.

Brooklyn’s grandma asked artist Adam Claridge to personalize a pair of Nike Air Force 1 trainers for the bride – and customized them with sentimental drawings and messages to Nicola.

The word ‘Bunny’ is visible on the shoes, which is the nickname given to Nicola’s grandmother who acted as her Maid of Honor on the day, as well as butterflies, roses and a replica of Brooklyn’s cherub tattoo.

Nicola and Brooklyn had shunned a traditional wedding gift list and instead asked their guests to donate to Ukraine.

In an emotional Instagram post after the three day extravaganza, Nicola penned: “My dad spoke about this in his wedding at our wedding. Me and Brooklyn are devastated about what is going on in Ukraine and have asked for donations to CareOrg in lieu of wedding gifts.

“Anything helps,” she added.

Becks had no formal role at the wedding but had been tasked with ensuring that all the Beckham men looked their best.

A few weeks before the big day he went to buy suits with his dad Ted and father-in-law Tony Adams, captioning a snap of the trio: “Creating special memories, wedding plans under way and the dads are all suited and booted. “

He was also rumored to be adopting a Master of Ceremonies position and gave a short speech to the gathered guests.

David reportedly ‘shed a tear’ as he watched his son head down the aisle and later became emotional while speaking about ‘Buster’ and his new daughter-in-law.

A source told The Sun : “David’s speech went on for about five minutes and he looked to shed a tear at one point. He was talking about when Brooklyn was born and how he wanted to protect him.

“He said he was sleeping on the hospital floor, holding the door shut because he didn’t want to let anyone get in. David got a lump in his throat and had to stop and take a breather to regain his composure, but it was a very sweet speech.”

David paid tribute to his eldest son as well as Romeo and Cruzwhen he shared a snap of himself with his boys via Instagram.

Alngoside the image, he wrote: “My beautiful boys & a very proud dad.. Congratulations Bust on a lifetime of happiness, we will always be by your side @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham we love you @victoriabeckham.”
