My most generous reading of Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s engagement is that they’re truly in love and they’re young enough and privileged enough to not have any complications. I also think the success of David and Victoria’s marriage has influenced Brooklyn too – he wants what his parents have, a ride-or-die marriage. While we know about Brooklyn’s nepotism career as a “photographer” (lol), what’s up with Nicola? Apparently, she’s the daughter of billionaire Nelson Peltz, the co-founder of Trian Fund Management (which is basically a hedge fund). Nicola is one of Nelson’s eight children, and she’s from his third marriage. I don’t know how much of daddy’s money Nicola will see, long-term, but being born into that kind of wealth and privilege obviously has its advantages. Besides, the Beckhams are rich enough to finance their son’s lifestyle too, obviously:
David and Victoria Beckham are reportedly set to purchase a love-nest as a wedding gift for their son Brooklyn and his wife-to-be Nicola Peltz. According to sources, the former footballer, 45, and the fashion designer, 46, are said to be helping the photographer, 21, and the actress, 25, find a pad in London, after the couple spent the lockdown period in New York. The pair, who have been dating for under a year, announced they were engaged over the weekend and are believed to be planning two separate weddings for next year.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Although they’ll spend a lot of time in America, Brooklyn wants a base in London. Victoria and David have offered to buy the house which will be seen as a wedding gift. It’s incredibly generous but they are like any other proud parents who want to help as much as they can. Brooklyn is eyeing up properties in East London but nothing is off limits.’
It could almost be seen as a corporate merger! The Beckhams will provide for Brooklyn and Nicola in the UK, while Nicola’s father can buy them an apartment in New York. Maybe Victoria will even pitch a financing scheme to Nelson Peltz to save her fashion line too.
Oh, and there’s a lot of talk about Nicola’s engagement ring, which can barely be seen in their engagement announcement Instagram. The experts believe that Brooklyn got Nicola an emerald-cut diamond, likely around 5 carats, at a cost of around $250K
