David Beckham has the sweetest relationship with his mum, Sandra Beckham, but as the football legend is constantly jet-setting, it's likely the 48-year-old misses his home comforts.

On Wednesday, he took to his Instagram account with a sweet tribute to his adoring mother whilst out for a hearty meal and shared a photo of his delicious-looking dinner which was comprised of ham, egg, pineapple, chips, beans, peas, and coleslaw.

Captioning the photo, he penned: "Not as good as yours mum but not bad, @sandra_beckham49" alongside a pink love heart emoji.

The meal is a staple in Sandra Beckham's household. Back in 2022, David shared a photo beside his mum at the dinner table at home, and on his plate was the exact same dinner as seen in the photo.

"Can't beat dinner with mum. Gammon, chips, pineapple, fried egg, coleslaw & mushy peas. Favorite as a kid thanks mum, followed by a jam doughnut and a cup of tea," he wrote, before teasing his sister Joanna, writing: "Sorry @jo_jo_beckham_ the [king] was home for dinner. @sandra_beckham49."

David's celebrity chef pal Gordon Ramsay was quick to weigh in on the post, complimenting the hearty dish. He penned: "I'm on my way @sandra_beckham49 @davidbeckham."

David is incredibly close to both his mum and his dad, Ted Beckham, and previously opened up about just how integral they were to his football success.

In his 2003 autobiography, David Beckham: My Side, he revealed how his dad helped him learn how to play football.  "We'd started by kicking a ball about in the back garden, but I was murdering the flowerbeds so after he got in from his job as a heating engineer, we’d go to the park together and just practice and practice for hours on end."

Talking about his mother in the Disney docuseries Save Our Squad with David Beckham, he said: "My mum was the one that was driving me to training, to games when my dad was working."

Adding: "I as a parent now, realize how much my parents gave up for me."

David also attributes his own work ethic to that of his parents. "When we were kids he used to go out to work at six o’clock in the morning and often come home at nine o’clock at night," David said. "My mum was the same — she used to work during the day and then in the evenings, once my sisters and I were in bed, she’d do hairdressing until 12 o’clock at night," He said in an interview with The Father Hood.
