With his cheeky grin and and dimples, it’s no wonder he was snapped up by some of the biggest modelling agencies. With the help of former Spice Girl’s manager, Simon Fuller, he reportedly got paid £45,000 for one day of work during the Burberry Christmas Campaign! Wow!

Along with famous mum, Victoria Beckham and dad, David Beckham, Romeo’s got three siblings, Brooklyn, 19, Cruz, 13 and little sister, seven- year-old Harper, who all take it in turns stealing the limelight.
