David and Victoria Beckham's Kids Are Following in Their Footsteps
The Beckham kids are growing up, but their close family bond is as strong as ever. Since Victoria and David Beckham got together in the '90s, they have been one of the world's most famous power couples. Victoria has been the pinnacle of glamour ever since she stepped on stage as Posh Spice, while David was at the height of his football career. And together, they have built quite the empire, both professionally and personally.
As well as their multi-faceted careers, the Beckhams have raised four kids: Brooklyn, 24; Romeo, 21; Cruz, 18; and Harper, 12. And they aren't shy about sharing sweet shots of their family on social media, whether they're celebrating birthdays or enjoying time together on holiday. And though some of their kids are out of the house — and their eldest, Brooklyn, tied the knot with Nicola Peltz in 2022 — the family still carves out plenty of time together.
There is even more insight into the Beckham brood in the new Netflix documentary, "Beckham", which premiered on Oct. 4, in which David opens up about the highs and lows of being in the spotlight. While he has achieved great success, along with Victoria, there is no denying his greatest role is being a dad to his four children.
Read ahead to meet Victoria and David's kids, and get a peek at some of their sweetest family photos to date.
Brooklyn Joseph Beckham
Born on March 4, 1999, Brooklyn is the oldest of the couple's four children. He is a model, photographer, and chef, and he tied the knot with Nicola Peltz in a lavish ceremony in 2022. Now, he seems set on following in his parents' footsteps when it comes to marriage and family. "I think I've said it a lot of times, that I'm very excited to be a dad," he told POPSUGAR in March. "My dad was young when he had me, and it was just so nice because we did everything together."
In fact, David was 23 years old when his first son was born. In the Netflix documentary, he reveals that he found out Victoria was pregnant the night before that infamous England v. Argentina 1998 World Cup match that saw him get sent off and changed the course of his career. "I told David the night before the game. He was so, so happy, we both were and there was never any doubt in my mind that I should tell him. I mean, it was what we wanted and he could not have been happier," Victoria says in the documentary.
Brooklyn was present at his mom and dad's wedding four months later, wearing a matching purple outfit to David and Victoria – a purple cowboy hat included.
Romeo James Beckham
David and Victoria welcomed their second son, Romeo James, into the world on Sept. 1, 2002. Romeo is lucky enough to be Elizabeth Hurley and Elton John's godson. He's followed in his dad's footsteps by becoming a professional football player, and signed a one-year contract with Brentford B in June 2023. He is also in a relationship with model Mia Regan, who he has been dating since 2019.
Cruz David Beckham
Born on Feb. 20, 2005, Cruz is the youngest son that Victoria and David share together. Fun fact: his parents chose to name him Cruz because it means "cross" in Spanish. Despite being a teenager, he still seems to love spending time with his parents, and in February 2023, he celebrated his 18th birthday by enjoying his first legal beer with his mom and dad. He is particularly fond of music and can regularly be seen playing his guitar and singing on social media.
In the Netflix documentary, Victoria reveals that David almost missed his son's birth because he had a photoshoot with Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. While David did manage to get there just in time, it was a fraught moment. "So I had my C-section and I remember lying there, I don't feel at my most gorgeous, let's just say, and I remember someone showing me the front page of the newspaper which was a gorgeous picture of David between Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé and the headline was 'What would Posh say?' Let me tell you what Posh would say. Posh was pissed off!" Victoria adds.
Harper Seven Beckham
Harper is the only daughter born into the Beckham brood. Born on July 10, 2011, she is the youngest of all the Beckham siblings. On July 10, 2023, she celebrated her 12th birthday with a fun trip to the Prada Caffè in London alongside her parents. "Happy Birthday Harper Seven💕 The sweetest,kindest soul," Victoria wrote in one of her posts. "Your love and energy is a blessing to everyone lucky enough to know and love you.You are our everything 💕💕💕💕 We love you so much.@davidbeckham @brooklynpeltzbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham 💕💕💕💕💕."
She is growing into a sweet young lady, and has often been spotted touching up her dad's makeup, so maybe she'll be following in her mom's fashion and beauty footsteps?
