Romeo Beckham was born into money and fame. He is the son of the famous soccer player David Beckham and the former singer, fashionista, and businesswoman of the Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham. Romeo is the spitting image of his father from early childhood and has always loved to hang out with him and even follow in his footsteps. Even his father, David, has admitted to social media that Romeo has a good heart and a dashing smile that will probably break more than a few hearts in the future.
The middle boy of the Beckham dynasty has shown flashes of genius in the world of modeling and athletics (soccer and tennis), two talents for which both his parents are known. Lately, however, the young man seems to be concentrating on building a career in tennis.
Who is Romeo Beckham? His age and biography
Romeo Beckham was born on September 1, 2002, at Portland Hospital in London, England. At the time of his birth, he weighed 7 pounds and 4 ounces. His father, David Beckham, was playing English football for Manchester United at the time. Romeo’s mother, Victoria Beckham, whose Spice Girls group had taken a break a few years earlier, in 2000, was trying out a solo career when Romeo was born.
Looking at his parents, the young man has a lot of success to look up to. David Beckham has played for some of the best football teams in the world, including Manchester United, Real Madrid, PSG, and LA Galaxy. During his playing career, he also won many team and individual awards, particularly in Manchester, where his team won a remarkable six Premier League titles in eight seasons between 1995 and 2003. David, who represented the England national team, is also the first England player to win league titles in four different countries.
Victoria Beckham, on the other hand, is known for her singing career with the pop group Spice Girls. Her albums “Spice”, “SpiceWorld” and “Forever” had singles that topped the music charts in 37 countries, including the UK and the United States. Since the founding of her fashion label of the same name in 2008, Victoria has also been a powerhouse in the fashion world.
Due to his father’s career, Romeo Beckham and his family moved around a lot. He spent his first year in England, then they moved to Madrid in Spain, then to the USA, as his father was transferred to different teams.
Romeo is his parents’ second son and second child. His older brother, Brooklyn, was born in 1999 before his parents got married. After Romeo’s birth, David and Victoria had two more children, a boy, Cruz, and a daughter, Harper.
Romeo Beckham and his two brothers were once enrolled at the Arsenal Football Club Academy to their father’s great delight when he was overjoyed to see his boys follow in his footsteps. However, Romeo left the Academy in 2015, eight months after his older brother Brooklyn had done the same. He told his father that he had decided not to play football at all.
Before that, however, the young Romeo had already got a taste of his mother’s world when he won his first modeling contract at the age of ten. It was a big deal for the young lad to get such a big contract with the huge British fashion house Burberry. With this contract, he remained loyal to the brand and appeared in various campaigns and on various billboards until 2015. His last campaign for the brand took place during the Christmas season of 2015.
More recently, Romeo has developed a love for tennis and has taken it more seriously than football. Young Beckham trains very hard and has even had training sessions with tennis great Andy Murray. Since 2015, Romeo has been training under the guidance of tennis star Grigor Dimitrov, who has frequently commented on his dedication and discipline for the game, which is reflected in the development of his talent and healthy diet.
As expected, Romeo has attended many important events and award ceremonies, such as the Teen Choice Awards, Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, and Wimbledon. He also appeared on his mother’s reality television show Being Victoria Beckham and on another reality show about the Beckham dynasty The Real Beckhams.
