In case you missed it, David and Victoria Beckham's son Brooklyn tied the knot in April this year.

The wedding made headlines worldwide - which makes sense since Posh and Becks are one of the most iconic couples in Hollywood.

Brooklyn, 23, married 27-year-old Nicola Peltz at a star-studded ceremony which is said to have cost millions.

So what advice did David have for his son before he walked down the aisle?

According to Marie Claire, just before Brooklyn tied the knot, his dad shared some words of wisdom for a happy marriage. 

"Treat your Mrs like gold," the sports star said.

David and Victoria have been married for over 20 years, so we're pretty sure the former footballer knows what he's talking about.

The couple met in 1997 after attending the same charity event and said "I do" in 1999.

Other marriage advice David previously shared with E! News is: "Just love each other, try and not worry about anything, keep working - [and] try and have fun."
