The couple – who have children Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and 11-month-old Harper – are said to be planning a special ceremony to take place on their 13th anniversary, July 4, and have invited family and friends to join them at their summer residence for the celebration.

A source said: “Last time they renewed their vows Cruz was still a baby and David pretty much did everything. But this time Victoria is planning a lavish vow-renewal at their usual rented summer Malibu pad around 4 July.

“She’s been telling all their families and close showbiz friends in LA, including Eva Longoria, who is Harper’s godmother and Kate Beckinsale, to keep the weekend free. She wants to make it extra-special for David. She’s so excited.”

Victoria has planned events over the entire Independence Day weekend in order to celebrate their 13-year union.

The source added to heat magazine: “Victoria wants to have a candlelit dinner with friends the night before followed by a quiet family brunch the next morning and then into their Independence Day celebrations. It’s going to be magical.”

David recently admitted the most romantic thing he has ever done for his wife was arrange their vow renewal ceremony as a surprise several years ago.

He said: “The most romantic thing I’ve ever done was probably when we renewed our wedding vows. It was a whole surprise, Victoria knew nothing about it. I had it all organised. I told her we were going out for lunch and I packed her bag.

“I had a dress ready for her to change into on the plane. I picked the dress. I picked everything. It was just a simple white Dolce & Gabbana dress I think.

“This is going back a few years, when I was playing in Spain. So then we renewed our vows, flew on to Paris and had a night in Paris.”
