Watch: David Beckham ROASTS Victoria's "Working Class" Claim

There's a reason why Victoria Beckham was called Posh Spice.

David Beckham let that be known on his newly released Netflix docuseries Beckham, which featured candid interviews from the soccer superstar's inner circle. During one scene, his wife of nearly 25 years opened up about how she came from a "very working class" family, prompting David, 48, to hilariously crash the solo sit-down and call her out for not completely telling the truth.

"Be honest," he playfully scolded the former Spice Girls singer, 49, from a cracked doorway, leading her to retort, "I am being honest!"

After some amusing banter, David then asked Victoria, "What car did your dad drive you to school in?"

When she tried to dodge the question, the retired athlete pressed on. "One answer," David quipped. "What car did you get your dad to drive you to school in?"

To which the fashion designer sheepishly responded, "OK, in the '80s, my dad had a Rolls Royce."

David and Victoria Beckham: Romance Rewind

Indeed, Victoria always had a bit of spice in her life. She grew up in Essex, England, in a house with a pool, according to BBC, which led famed music manager Simon Fuller to dub her Posh Spice when the girl group was formed in 1994.

Victoria went on to marry David in 1999 during the height of his sports career. However, after he was transferred from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2003, the couple were rocked by reports that David had cheated while playing for the Spanish team.

"It was the hardest period for us," Victoria recalled on Beckham. "Because it felt like the world was against us. And here's the thing: We were against each other if I'm being completely honest. You know, up until Madrid, sometimes it felt like us against everybody else. But we were together, we were connected, we had each other. But when we were in Spain, it didn't really feel like we had each other either. And that's sad."

She continued, "It was probably, if I'm being honest, the most unhappy I have ever been in my entire life."

Looking back at that difficult chapter in their marriage, David—who shares kids Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 12, with Victoria—admitted, "I don't know how we got through it in all honesty."

"Victoria's everything to me, to see her hurt was incredibly difficult," he said. "But, we're fighters. And at that time, we needed to fight for each other, we needed to fight for our family. And what we had was worth fighting for."
