Beckham said in a statement, "If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy."
"I'm fortunate to have realized those dreams," he added.
Beckham recently moved his family back to London after he ended his five-and-a-half year stint with the L.A. Galaxy.
Shakira's inaugural season on "The Voice" isn't over yet, but the new coach already knows she won't be returning in the fall.
"It was a hard decision for me to make, because I'm really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me," the singer tells E! News.
"And I really enjoyed 'The Voice,' but I also have a musical career and I'm also a mother now and my poor baby's so tired flying such long distances," says Shakira, adding, "He already has more miles than any pilot."
"So I think I have to give him a little break," the Latin star continues, "and we'll see what happens in the future."

It all began with a story in The Sun, which claimed Jaden "decided that for his 15th birthday in July he would like the gift of FREEDOM from his parents — and to be able to live in a home of his own."
While appearing on Wednesday's show, Ellen DeGeneres asked about whether it was true that Jaden wanted to be emancipated, and he told the talk show host, "I'm not going anywhere."
He explained, "Everything at [Will's] house is free… I will be there for 20, 30 more years."
Kelly Rowland comes clean in her new single "Dirty Laundry," in which she sings about feeling jealous of Beyonce and being in an abusive relationship.
The lyrics include lines such as, "When my sister on stage/killing it like a motherf**ker/I was in a rage/feeling it like a motherf**ker" and "Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it/Bittersweet she was up, I was down/No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now?"
Rowland also sings about being abused by an ex-lover, crooning, "I was battered/He hitting the window like it was me, until it shattered/He pulled me out and said, 'Don't nobody love you but me/Not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not Bey."
Rowland's upcoming album "Talk a Good Game" hits stores on June 18.

"We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation," said NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt in a statement, adding, "His years at SNL's 'Weekend Update' desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the 'Late Night' franchise."
Of his new appointment, Meyers cracked, "I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car."
He said more seriously, "12:30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice."

Lauryn Hill, who pled guilty in 2012 to failing to pay taxes of around $1 million, was sentenced to three months in prison on Monday.
She had faced a maximum of three years behind bars — a year for each of the three counts of not paying taxes in 2005, 2006, and 2007.
The Grammy winner told the court during her sentencing, "I needed to be able to earn so I could pay my taxes, without compromising the health and welfare of my children, and I was being denied that."
She didn't, however, explain why she decided to drop out of performing or why she stopped paying taxes.
When news of Hill's tax evasion initially broke a year ago, she wrote a lengthy blog post explaining she didn't file her returns because she chose to live "underground" for the "safety" of her family.
Hill noted at the time that she faithfully paid her taxes while she was "working consistently," and "only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family."
It is not clear yet where or when the former Fugees singer will report to prison.
Nick Cannon is weighing in on the ongoing drama between his wife Mariah Carey and her fellow "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj.
As previously reported, the on-set feuding between the two divas has heated up again in recent weeks, with the stars exchanging barbs during the live shows.
"She didn't sign up for that," Cannon said during an appearance on KTLA on Monday when asked about the controversies.
The "America's Got Talent" host revealed Carey suspected there would be drama with Minaj, claiming "she tried to tell the network, like 'I don't think this is going to work. I'm afraid…'"
"She was like 'I don't need this. I'm doing this for the brand of American Idol,' which she has been a fan of," said Cannon. "'This is going to turn into one of those reality shows.' She's like, 'I didn't sign up to be on Love & Hip Hop.'"
Cannon went on to accuse the "Idol" execs of "perpetuating" the drama, and maintained that his wife "has been taking the high road."
"But it feels like even the producers and everybody else want to play into the sound bites," lamented the star.
Asked whether Carey would sign on for another season, Cannon said, "I think if they get it stable, she might re-look at it, but she doesn't want to be a part of anything that's unstable."
Demi Lovato let fans "speed up time" and access her new music before her self-titled album is released later this month.

Beyonce revealed, "I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister [to Solange Knowles.]"
She added that everything is "completely different" ever since she became a mom, and she's so grateful that her life now has a "way bigger meaning."
"I am very protective. I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life," Beyonce shared.
The "Love on Top" singer went on to say that despite her megastar status, she's still the same old Bey she always was.

Justin Bieber and Usher are facing a reported $10 million lawsuit alleging they violated copyright on the teen singer's song "Somebody to Love."
In the lawsuit filed Thursday, performer Devin Copeland – also known as De Rico – and songwriter Mareio Overton claim they wrote "Somebody to Love" in 2008, and released it on the De Rico album "My Story II."
The pair reportedly claim they were eventually put in touch with Usher's mother (and former manager), who allegedly said the music mogul had listened to the album and wanted Copeland to possibly tour with him.
Usher later reportedly put out a demo version of "Somebody to Love" on YouTube, and Bieber went on to record it for his 2010 album, My World 2.0, and released it as a single.
A remix version, featuring both Bieber and Usher, was released on Usher's 2010 Versus EP, and Bieber's 2011′s Never Say Never: The Remixes.
In their suit, Copeland and Overton allege a number of similarities between their version and Bieber and Usher's, including the same use of chords, time signature, and chorus hook.
The two are seeking at least $10 million in damages from the two superstars for contributory infringement, vicarious infringement, and copyright infringement, according to The Wrap.
A rep for Bieber had no comment when contacted
Usher's rep has not yet responded to a request for comment.
We'll have updates.
"American Idol" had its most dramatic and emotional results show of the season thus far on Thursday.
After much suspense and the foreshadowing of many tears to come, one contestant from the Top 4 was eliminated and the Top 3 was revealed.
The results were based on the combined totals of last week's votes added to this week's.
So, how did things break down?
Amber Holcomb and Kree Harrison were surprisingly in the Bottom Two.
Ultimately, Holcomb was the one eliminated.
The 19-year-old broke down in tears towards the end of her farewell performance, and was unable to finish.
Her fellow contestants, and the judges as well, were visibly emotional, too, as host Ryan Seacrest brought Holcomb's dad on stage.
Next week, Harrison, Angie Miller, and Candice Glover will get to go on hometown visits, before competing again on Wednesday.
Nicki Minaj slammed Mariah Carey in a Twitter rant on Thursday after the "American Idol" judges went at it on last night's show.
The Twitter eruption came just hours after Wednesday's broadcast, during which Minaj and Carey got heated while arguing about the contestants, with Minaj waving a cotton swab at Carey and advising her to clean out her ears, and Carey burning Minaj for failing to collect Billboard Hot 100 hits.
But Minaj was not done.
On Thursday, the rapper unloaded on Twitter, bringing up reports that "American Idol" wanted to replace Carey with Jennifer Lopez before the season ended and retweeting followers who happily piled on Carey.
Referring to an "Idol" recap about Carey burning her, Minaj wrote, "Bwaha! Burn? Shes sad i tied her record for Hot 100 entries in only 3 years of being in the game. Yep, a black female rapper."
"What u SHOULD be doing (wit your messy a**) is asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter," continued Minaj.
She added, "All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol. I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that."
Carey has not yet responded on Twitter — but expect sparks to fly on Thursday's live "Idol."
Chris Kelly of Kris Kross was using cocaine and heroin the night before he died, according to a police report, and authorities are investigating his death as a possible drug overdose.
the rapper was found unresponsive in his Atlanta home on Wednesday after his mother called 911.
He was pronounced dead at a local hospital a few hours later.
Law enforcement officials in Fulton County are now treating the death as a potential drug overdose after Kelly's mother Donna Kelly Pratt told them that the rapper had an "extensive history" of drug use and had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine ("speedballs") hours before he passed out, never to awake.
A toxicology report is expected to be released shortly.
Candice Glover received a standing ovation for an "amazing" Bruno Mars cover on "American Idol" on Wednesday.
The Top 4 singer belted out "If I Was Your Man," and wowed the judges with her vocals.
"You can sing anything," Randy Jackson told Glover. "This girl right here, that's how you sing a song. Congratulations, that was amazing!"
Mariah Carey agreed, saying, "Candice knows how to take any song and has the musicality to change it to suit her. And that's what separates her from almost everyone else in the competition."
Keith Urban told Glover she had no reason to be worried about singing a song from a man's perspective, and told her, "When you sing that good Candice, that's a winning performance right there, baby."
And Nicki Minajadmitted, "That performance actually deserved a standing ovation, so excuse us, darling," prompting the panel to stand up belatedly.
"You were the first girl tonight to make the song feel like it was your own song written for you, performing for your own fans," said the rapper.

On his Sirius XM radio show "Dirty Pop," the former *NSYNC singer revealed Collins has "been trying to plan this for a very long time, contemplating if he wanted to do this."
"In fact, he said he was going to call me months ago but was too scared, because he wanted to tell me," added Bass, who knows Collins through mutual pal Joanna Garcia.
Earlier today, Collins told George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" the response to him coming out was "incredible," and that he didn't know "of any other gay players in the NBA."
