DAVID BECKHAM has showed off his stunning £6million Cotswolds mansion where he celebrated his 45th birthday.
Accompanied by wife Victoria and three of their children, the former Manchester United and England star was treated to a bacon-and-egg sandwich with presents wrapped in paper adorned by his own face.
The stunning Cotswolds retreat was a Grade II-listed farmhouse that was converted into the sprawling mansion-like building.
Purchased in December 2016 for a reported £6.15million, David and Victoria took their youngest children Harper, 8, Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, to the country before lockdown was imposed.
The Beckhams can boast a lengthy property portfolio featuring a London townhouse, Dubai beach property and Miami penthouse.
Home comforts abound inside their Cotswold abode with chandeliers and an enormous roaring fireplace.
The kitchen hosts long tables, gorgeous stone floors and an Aga oven, leading to a vast outdoor eating area to match the one inside.
A tennis court can be found outside with a garden that holds a plunge pool and an interesting looking outhouse that could be a sauna.
Former Real Madrid midfielder Beckham recently urged world leaders to help beat Malaria.
He appeared in a video where he aged 30 years as he imagined announcing an end to the disease.
He was done up with wrinkles and a grey beard for a short film called Malaria Must Die, So Millions Can Live.
In the clip, he said: "We have defeated humankind’s oldest and deadliest enemy."
Beckham then returns to the present, where he added: "It breaks my heart that a child dies every two minutes from malaria.
“A future free from this disease is possible in our lifetimes.”
As part of the campaign, Becks met BBC presenter Charlie Webster who was given 24 hours to live after contracting malaria while on a charity cycle ride to the Rio Olympics in 2016.
