Her parents are expected to fly out to LA especially for the celebratory meal, while close friends of the Beckham's, Gordon and Tana Ramsay are also expected to join the family.

Victoria won world wide fame as part of one of the biggest girl bands in the world, and later went onto reinvent herself as a credible fashion designer, dressing Hollywood stars such as Michelle Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway and Cameron Diaz.

While the Beckhams are close friends with Tom Cruise and Eva Longoria, Victoria is well-established in the Hollywood jet-set, but still manages to get star struck.

She revealed to People magazine that she is a "big fan" of Barbra Streisand and "would love to have dinner with Hillary Clinton."
