David Beckham, watch out!

He may only be 12-years-old but it looks like Romeo James Beckham is destined to be even bigger than his famous father, David.

Is that even possible? Clearly so!

Whilst we were pretty much convinced that David Beckham, 39, was the crème-de-la-crème of ALL men, Romeo‘s already proving that he’s got what it takes to be the next generation’s man-of-the-moment.

Seriously though, with Victoria Beckham, 41, and David as your parents, it’s pretty much a given that life is gonna get large…

We’ve rounded up the top 6 reasons why Romeo is going to be bigger than his dad…


He ran the London Marathon AND raised a ton of money for charity…

It’s not easy running a marathon but Romeo took it all in his stride (geddit?) on Sunday as he competed in the children’s race at the 2015 London Marathon, cheered on by his super-famous family. Not only did he complete the three-mile course in an impressive 18 minutes and 54 seconds, he also raised a whopping £6,000 for UNAIDS and 7 Fund.


He’s a model…at 12….

Yup, the young Beckham boy made his modeling debut last year as he starred in Burberry‘s festive ad.
Oh and he’s no diva y’no?! Burberry’s Chief Executive Christopher Bailey praised Romeo saying: ‘It continues to be an utter joy working with Romeo – he has charm, style and great energy!’

…and he’s making serious dollar.

Romeo reportedly made an eye-watering £45,000 for just one day of work whilst shooting the Burberry ad. That’s a seriously impressive £93.75 a minute for an eight-hour day. David earned almost £50 million last year, so Romeo is well on the way!


He’s going to be GORGEOUS

Let’s be honest, of the three Beckham boys; Brooklyn, 16, Romeo and Cruz, 10, Romeo is undoubtedly the David Beckham doppelganger. This can only mean that great things are in store for lil’ Romeo…

Total fashionista dah-ling.

Erm, this picture says it all. Bow-tie, smart shirt and a designer scarf – sorry, but we can’t imagine David was this slick at 12.
When questioned which son would be taking after him style-wise, David even admitted, ‘definitely Romeo.’


He’s a sport pro

David‘s a world-renowned footballing pro but he best watch out! Romeo has joined brother Brooklyn at Arsenal’s football academy AND he’s a whiz at tennis. In 2014, tennis coach John Johnson gushed about Romeo, revealing: ‘He has a lot of talent and very good hand-eye coordination. I’m going to have a meeting with his mother about it to reinforce that because I’m not sure his parents realise how good he is.’
