Brooklyn Beckham has celebrated his 21st birthday in style – with presents adorned with his own face.

The eldest son of Spice Girl turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham and footballer David Beckham posted a picture on his Instagram Stories of presents wrapped with personalised wrapping paper, apparently from his parents, captioned “Love you mum and dad”.

David, 44, and Victoria, 45, both shared emotional tributes to their son as he turned 21.

David used a picture of a young Brooklyn wearing a swimming cap and wrote: “Happy 21st to my big boy. What more can I say about you other than you have grown into the most beautiful human being and that makes dad so proud. You are kind, passionate and caring and as a father that’s what you want to see in your son.

“We have had so many great moments as a father and son together like lifting trophies in all the places that I won them and for me that was always my dream.”

Victoria posted a photo of David holding Brooklyn as a newborn baby, writing: ”21 years ago today the most beautiful soul came into the world and changed our lives forever. Sensitive, sweet, kind and funny, you are our everything. I love you so much @davidbeckham xxx Happy Birthday @brooklynbeckham.”

Brooklyn’s girlfriend, American actress Nicola Peltz, 25, called him “the love of my life” as she wished him a happy birthday. The couple were first linked in October 2019 and made their relationship public in January.

Brooklyn’s brothers Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, also shared touching tributes to their big brother.

He captioned it: “Love you so much. I can’t believe you are 21.”

Romeo wished him “an amazing day”.

Brooklyn’s eight-year-old sister Harper is not on social media.

Victoria and David are said to be planning a lavish party at their Cotswolds mansion at the weekend to celebrate Brooklyn’s 21st birthday in style.
