David Beckham cried happy tears when Brooklyn surprised him for his birthday


Victoria Beckham posted this lovely photo of her husband and their three youngest children on Wednesday. Wednesday was David Beckham’s 43rd birthday, and the family celebrated in a low-key way in London. Clearly, the three youngest kids were in London for their dad’s birthday, but the oldest son, Brooklyn, has been living in New York for the better part of a year. He’s been going to college and living that New York Lyfe. But because the Beckhams are so close and these kids would literally do anything for their parents, Brooklyn hopped a plane and flew in to surprise his dad on his birthday. Brooklyn turned up to the restaurant where the family was apparently having a birthday lunch, and David’s reaction was just… sort of beautiful and pure.

That’s Harper Beckham’s little voice in the background, with her little British accent, saying “I didn’t know Brooklyn was coming!” David immediately goes to tears and it’s just… really sweet. I needed this video in my life.

Also: ever since this shady Us Weekly story, I’ve been on high alert for a “David and Posh are separating” story. It hasn’t happened. They’re clearly… fine. Fine enough to still celebrate birthdays together.

    Aww they love their boy so much. It’s sweet.

    Wow. That made me cry more than a little bit. He is the sweetest dad. He just cries and cuddles him for so long. My family is NOT like this at all, but my SO will absolutely be this kind of dad, and I hope to raise these kinds of children. As an aside, I always thought Victoria was cold and severe (even though I always defended her, because she had that hustle! VB for Royal Wedding would be a major victory.) until I saw her doing interviews with children. She is SO warm and fun! And people have been saying they were splitting for two bloody decades. They need to give it a rest. Clearly they’re doing just fine.

    This is beautiful! It makes me miss my mom and wish I had this kind of close relationship with my dad.

    I never had a dad in my life, so when I see moments like this I feel a little envy. So sweet!

    They really are fabulous parents. So much affection for their kids and not afraid to show it. I know David has been criticized for being so loving towards Harper (he kissed her on the lips and the internet imploded with hate) but I think it’s amazing.

    They are bringing their kids up with love and values and they will bring their kids up like that :) I just love this family :)

    This is very telling of how loving and warm they are as parents. I hope my daughter will love me this much when she is older. So heartwarming.

    Aw that thawed my cold, dead heart out a little …. makes me miss my dad.

  11. Alexis says:

    That was so sweet. I think they have such a lovely family.

    This is an awesome post but I can’t help but comment that I really hate Vick’s outfit, especially the pants.

  13. Lucy says:

    Adorable. Say what you will about the Beckhams and nepotism, but you can tell they truly love each other.

    This family has always been loving and close-knit. I remember Victoria say in one interview that she couldn’t leave baby Harper behind in LA while she was doing work on her fashion line in New York. She had to be there with her baby. So Harper always went wherever she went. And when she would travel with the kids, Brooklyn would carry Harper and shield her face from paparazzi as Victoria took care of the luggages or held Romeo and Cruz’s hands.

    I chanced upon Romeo and Cruz’s Instagram pages when I was browsing Victoria’s, and the two boys often post messages about missing Brooklyn, how much they love Mum and Dad, and how they all adore Harper. The kids are all very sweet.
