Beckhams arrive in LA

Los Angeles, July 13:

David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, arrived here to begin their new lives in the United States.

The British power couple smiled and held hands as they walked out of a Los Angeles International Airport terminal after arriving from London. Dozens of reporters and photographers pushed and shoved behind barriers set up at the terminal before the duo, surrounded by security guards, left in a black sport utility vehicle without commenting.

Their three children accompanied them on the flight, but didn’t exit the terminal with them. Several people at the airport to pick up passengers became paparazzi themselves, snapping images with their cell phones.

The English midfielder will play for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer. He’s set to make his debut in an exhibition match against Chelsea on July 21 in Carson.
