The football legend also said that he feared that he had missed his chance to date her.

The 38-year-old said that when he was playing with Manchester United and she came down with his manager, he was overcome with shyness and left after introducing himself.

The former footballer admitted that finding out that Victoria, 39, was pregnant with their first daughter in 2011, gave him the most perspective.
