Birthday Boy: Brooklyn Beckham


David and Victoria’s eldest turned 13-years-old over the weekend – an age that typically brings an end to a child’s I-don’t-mind-kissing-my-dad-on-the-lips-whilst-taking-a-ride-on-his-shoulders era.

The whole family celebrated Brooklyn’s coming of age on Sunday, which started with a boys-only outing to the LA Lakers
game (they ate nachos, chatted up Denzel Washington) followed by a “huge party”
at the Beckham compound.

Although it saddens us to think there’s only one Beckham child under the age of five left before photographic magic like this ceases to exist, we do have the comfort of many ‘Embarrassing Dad’ moments to come.

They’re the gift that keeps on giving, those Beckham boys.

Oh, we’re all going to hell anyway, so why would one more huge lie matter?

Victoria Beckham et David Beckham shootVictoria Beckham is gracing the pages of Madame Figaro this month, and although we can’t read much of what’s on their cover, we’re going to hazard a guess that the text is all about the “F” word: her fabulous life, fabulous hubby, fabulous fashion business and all the fabulosity that comes with it.

And fair enough. She looks… well, fab. She wears looks from (L-R) Hakaan, Prada, Lanvin, and Victoria Beckham (above), natch.

This wouldn’t be the first of many posts over the next few years that are ripe for the title, “David Beckham – Embarrassing Dad”, would it?

Cruz knows, but we aren’t quite ready to accept it.
