Brooklyn Beckham was the first child born to Spice Girl Victoria and footballer David Beckham.

He was delivered via an emergency caesarean at the Portland Hospital in Westminster. He is believed to be the godson of Elton John and husband David Furnish.

The Beckhams’ name choice raised a few eyebrows and they later revealed that they conceived their son while in Brooklyn, New York.

Brooklyn has two younger brothers Romeo and Cruz, plus a little sister named Harper Seven.

At the age of two, he showed off his football skills at the Premier League final. Brooklyn joined father David for the players’ lap of honour before kicking a ball into the back of the net.

He made his television debut at the age of three, when he appeared in his mother’s documentary Being Victoria Beckham.

In November 2013, the then 14-year-old had trials with Manchester United’s under-15s and looked as if he was set to follow in his father’s footsteps.

He also had a trial at Chelsea FC in January of that year, where he trained with Gordon Ramsay’s son Jack.

Brooklyn Beckham stole the spotlight with his attendance at the 2013 Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards at London’s Claridge’s Hotel. He supported mum Victoria as she picked up the Special Contribution To British Fashion Award.

Appearing on the cover, Brooklyn made his modelling debut in Man About Town magazine in March 2014. He was shot by photographer Alasdair McLellan and featured in the 20-page editorial inside.

Despite his celebrity upbringing, in May 2014 Brooklyn was said to be working in a coffee shop in West London for just £2.68 an hour.

Two months later, he began work experience with family friend Guy Ritchie, spending four days at the director’s office in London.

Brooklyn Beckham was linked to actress Chloe Moretz in the summer of 2014. They arrived at the Young Hollywood Awards together on 10 August, but did not walk the red carpet as an item.

He later supported her at her If I Stay premiere on 20 August.
