Earlier this year, Posh Spice hinted her son had set his heart on a footballing career.

The former singer revealed her second son had been training with Mr Beckham’s Inter Miami football club.

She told VOGUE: “Romeo has been training with the team over here every day, because ultimately that’s what he wants to do.”

Mr Beckham made history as a football player, having played for Manchester United as well as Real Madrid and England.

Now the retired player is the current co-owner of Inter Miami CF.

The Beckham family split their time between the UK and the US.
