Another agreed, saying 'Diana is that you?'

Sandra's daughter-in-law Victoria also joined in the birthday celebrations, sharing a short clip of David reciting a speech to his mum, stirring lots of emotional responses around the table.

In his speech, David Beckham read "Everything that my mum does and believes in revolves around us and nothing really revolves around her."

"So tonight mum, this is for you as you are the most special person in all of our lives. What you do for me, for Joanne, for Lynn, for all of our grandkids is irreplaceable, so tonight is for you."

"You should enjoy it and have one more glass of Cointreau and lemonade. We love you and we appreciate everything you do and like I said, everything you do, you do if for everyone else so tonight should be about you. We love you."

Family is clearly very important to David, as he has four children of his own with wife Victoria. The couple have been married since 1999, and are still one of the most iconic celebrity pairs to this day.
