​David Beckham Wishes Son Romeo A Happy 16th Birthday

Whenever birthdays roll around, parents often see it as the occasion to whip out some old embarrassing snaps from your childhood, before writing some embarrassingly sappy message.

And it seems the same is true for the Beckham offspring, with David and Victoria gushing on Instagram about their 'big boy' Romeo, who turned 16 today.

David shared an old snap where he's pretending to show a fresh-faced Romeo how to shave (David, you absolute hoot), writing: "I cannot believe my little man is 16 years old... Happy birthday big boy you are so special and I love you so much."

"This pic is soo cute," one person commented.

"You are the cutest dad of all time," another wrote.

Mum Victoria also shared the Insta love, posting a photo of the two of them stood on a balcony in front of a beautiful sunset.

She captioned the photo: "Happy Birthday Romeo! Can't believe our baby is 16 today!!! We all love you so so much."

She also shared another photo of the birthday celebrations in full force, with a grinning Romeo sat in front of massive balloons and a table full with presents.

Big brother Brooklyn also got involved, sharing a photo of him holding Romeo as a baby, saying 'Love you'.

Judging from the Beckhams' collective Instagram accounts, it looks like they've been having quite the summer this year.

Not only did they manage to make it down to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding looking a zillion dollars, just the other day they were knocking about in the south of France with Elton John and his family, seemingly having the NICEST time.

Posting a photo in which he was posing with David and Victoria to Instagram, Elton wrote: "Winding down my Summer holiday with these lovely people."

Elton's rocking his signature flamboyant style (floral shirt, colourful shoes and those trademark tinted sunnies), while the Beckhams can be seen lounging about in their chic summer getup, posing to the camera like the social media pros they are.

David then also posted a photo to his Instagram, writing: "Uncle Elton.... We have known each other now for 25 years... Fun times with each other."

Fans of the famous friends also enjoyed seeing the holiday snaps, with one Instagrammer commenting on David's picture: "Two great legends, one boat, one love...everyday is paradise."

Another said: "My fav player and my fav singer in one pic."

Meanwhile, someone else commented on Elton John's photo to point out a minor miracle that was taking place: "She's actually smiling! The world has waited years! Hats off to you vic!"
