The saying goes, “Like father, like son,” but for the Beckhams, it’s more like, “Like mother and father, like son.”
Victoria and David Beckham showered their second-born, Romeo, with heartfelt tributes on Instagram for his 21st birthday. And if the pictures are anything to go by, the Beckham genes have a powerful legacy.
Victoria, the iconic Spice Girl and fashion maven, shared a touching video montage on Friday, chronicling memories of Romeo. Amid the nostalgic mix of family pictures and videos, one particular shot stood out. In it, Romeo, sporting a bleach-blonde buzz cut paired with a red plaid shirt and light blue jeans, looked like he was carved from the same mold as his famous parents. Standing between the two, the family resemblance was unmistakable. Victoria kept it casual in a muted gray hoodie, while David looked sharp in a classic white collared shirt. The trio, all snuggled up, showcased their innate modeling flair, exuding warmth and candid charm.
Victoria’s heartfelt caption read, “Happy Birthday @RomeoBeckham. The kindest, most selfless soul. Words fall short expressing how proud and love-filled we are for you. You complete us.” She then went on to send love from the entire Beckham clan, including @DavidBeckham, @BrooklynPeltzBeckham, @CruzBeckham, and #HarperSeven.
David Beckham, never one to be outdone when it comes to family love, shared the same montage (set to the rhythmic beats of Tame Impala’s “The Less I Know The Better”) on his profile. His message to Romeo was poignant: “Happy 21st, my boy. You’ve grown into this generous, passionate soul we’re incredibly proud of. Always be yourself and chase your dreams. Our love for you knows no bounds.”
Adding to the family tableau, the Beckhams are also parents to 24-year-old Brooklyn, 18-year-old Cruz, and 12-year-old Harper. The family moments they share show a bond that’s as endearing as it is enduring.
