Brooklyn Beckham (born March 4, 1999) is a former model and English media personality most recognized as the firstborn child of former English footballer David Beckham and singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham. He has become a notable figure due to his family’s widespread fame and public profile.
Brooklyn Beckham was born to parents David and Victoria Beckham, on March 4, 1999, in London, England. He grew up in a family that was constantly in the public eye due to his parents’ celebrity status. During his childhood, Beckham spent time in different parts of the world due to his father’s soccer career, including Madrid and Los Angeles.
Brooklyn had the unique experience of being raised alongside his three younger siblings, Romeo James, Cruz David, and Harper Seven. In December 2004, Brooklyn and Romeo were baptized at a private chapel on the family’s Hertfordshire estate, with celebrity figures David Furnish, Elton John, and Elizabeth Hurley serving as their godparents.
As a teenager, Brooklyn worked weekends at a coffee shop in West London, showcasing his independence and strong work ethic. He sought to establish his own identity and interests. His involvement with the Arsenal F.C. Academy showcased his passion for soccer and his desire to pursue his path separate from his parents’ celebrity status. Although he ultimately left the academy in 2015 after not receiving a scholarship offer.
Overall, Brooklyn’s early life was marked by his exposure to fame and his efforts to establish a sense of identity separate from his parents’ celebrity status.
David Beckham‘s foray into the modelling industry began in 2014, and he quickly gained attention for his striking features and photogenic charisma. He has since been featured in several prominent fashion magazines, including Vogue China and L’Uomo Vogue. Beckham has also served as a brand ambassador for Huawei and Honor 8 smartphones alongside high-profile celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Karlie Kloss, and Henry Cavill.
However, Beckham’s modelling career has been subject to controversy. At 16, he was hired to appear in a Burberry campaign, which drew criticism from some photographers who argued that he was only selected because of his famous last name.
Beyond modelling, Beckham has also dabbled in the world of photography. In 2017, he announced that he would study photography at Parsons School of Design in New York, but ultimately dropped out after completing only one year. Despite this setback, Beckham published a book of his photography titled “What I See.” Unfortunately, the book received negative reviews from critics and readers alike.
In 2019, Beckham interned with the renowned British photographer Rankin, which helped him further hone his skills behind the camera. More recently, in 2021, he experimented with cooking and created an online video series called “Cookin’ With Brooklyn.” However, despite Beckham’s lack of formal culinary training, the show faced criticism for its high production costs and use of professional chefs.
Brooklyn Beckham’s personal life has been a topic of interest for many fans and followers. In 2014, he began dating actress Chloë Grace Moretz, but the couple eventually broke up after several on-again, off-again periods.
Since then, Beckham has been linked to several other women, including model singer Sonia Ben Ammar, model Lexi Wood, singer Madison Beer, dancer Lexi Panterra, model Lottie Moss, model Phoebe Torrance, and singer Rita Ora.
In 2016, Beckham attended the Democratic National Convention with Moretz and publicly supported Hillary Clinton‘s bid for the presidency. Despite several breakups and reconciliations, Beckham and Moretz ultimately called it quits for good in 2018.
In 2020, Beckham announced his relationship with actress Nicola Peltz on social media, and the couple quickly became the subject of widespread attention. Beckham proposed to Peltz in July of the same year, and the two were married in a beautiful Jewish ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida, in 2022.
Beckham is also a fan of tattoos and has many inkings on his body.
Brooklyn has an accumulated net worth estimated to be approximately US$10 million.
