His parents may add up to one of the biggest power couples in the world, but Brooklyn Beckham is hot on the heels of their success. David and Victoria Beckham’s oldest son is growing up fast, and it’s clear he only has big things ahead of him.
Brooklyn has not only amassed a major social media fan base, but he’s also become a bit of a heartthrob amongst teen girls worldwide — without having to follow in his dad’s pro soccer (er, football) footsteps. Obviously, this guy is one to watch, from his career moves to his romantic status.
It’s probably time we get to know him a bit better. Read on for everything you need to know about Brooklyn.
How old is Brooklyn now?
British soccer superstar David Beckham and wife (and former Spice Girl) Victoria Beckham welcomed their first child, Brooklyn Joseph, on March 4, 1999. Contrary to popular belief, the now-18-year-old was not named for the place where he was conceived. Instead, his mom simply liked the name Brooke and wanted the male version. Plus, she found out she was pregnant in Brooklyn, NY!
How tall is he?
Though Brooklyn has never spoken publicly about his height, he’s estimated to clock in at about 5-foot-9. In recent months, he’s been seen alongside his 5-foot-11 dad, looking to be only a couple inches shorter.
Where does he go to school?
The university student is currently attending Parsons School of Design in NYC, at which he started as a freshman in fall 2017. He’s enrolled in the photography program at the prestigious arts school.
What does he want to do for a living?
As you might’ve guessed from his studies, Brooklyn is an aspiring professional photographer. He released his first photography book, What I See, in August 2017. Around that time, he also flaunted his skills with photos of his adorable sister, Harper.
Is Brooklyn single?
The celebrity spawn has been linked to a number of beauties over the last couple of years, starting with French model Sonia Ben Ammar, whom he dated from October 2015 to March 2016. He was first spotted hanging out with actress Chloë Grace Moretz in 2014, and the Neighbors 2 star confirmed their relationship in late 2016 — though they split just a few months later.
In early summer 2017, singer and internet sensation Madison Beer confirmed she and Brooklyn had been seeing one another but they ended things when he moved to the Big Apple. In September 2017, he and Chloë seemed to rekindle their romance, and they’ve been going strong since.
