But Romeo Beckham, the model schoolboy son of Posh and Becks, would be wasted doing anything else…

STOP THE PRESS. Romeo Beckham, ten, is the new face of Burberry. But I don’t know why you’re all so surprised?

It’s hardly a shock, considering who his mum and dad are. And he’s got a rather swoon-some showbiz name to boot!

So let’s be honest, the model schoolboy son of Posh and Becks would be wasted doing anything else…

Romeo, who is the middle-child in the Beckham clan, was apparently ‘amazing, incredible and a joy’ to work with, according to Burberry chief, Christopher Bailey.

Posh and Becks must be so proud, but we’ll never know because they have refused to comment on their son’s first modelling job. Why?

Because they reportedly don’t want to make a big deal out of it as Romeo is so young.

And also, possibly because they don’t want to make his two other brothers, Brooklyn, 13, and Cruz, seven, too jealous?
