| Last updated
David Beckham reportedly 'shed a tear' at his eldest son's wedding after delivering an emotional speech.
The mega £3 million wedding party featured Brooklyn Beckham, 23, who got married to his long-term partner Nicola Peltz, 27 at her billionaire father's £76 million oceanfront estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
Despite all the famous guests in attendance, such as Gordon Ramsay and Eva Longoria, David was unable to hold back the tears as he recalled the day his eldest child was born.
An insider told The Sun: “David’s speech went on for about five minutes and he looked to shed a tear at one point.
“He was talking about when Brooklyn was born and how he wanted to protect him.
“He said he was sleeping on the hospital floor, holding the door shut because he didn’t want to let anyone get in.
“David got a lump in his throat and had to stop and take a breather to regain his composure, but it was a very sweet speech.”
The star studded event reportedly went on till 3am as guests enjoyed an asparagus starter with the option of filet mignon, fish or a vegan dish for their main, with food served at 8.30pm.
The loving couple also enjoyed the classic 'Can't Help Falling in Love' by Elvis Presley for their first dance.
In a tribute to Nicola during a pre-party on Friday night, Becks reportedly said: “We love you so much. We are excited that you’ll be part of the family.”
Aspiring chef, Brooklyn has a number of tributes to Peltz tattooed on his body, including a letter she wrote him, which is located on his neck and upper back.
The letter reads: “My forever boy. Read this anytime you feel anxious.
"I want you to know how deeply loved you are.
“You have the kindest heart I’ve ever met and hope I never go a day without your love.
“I think you are so incredible.
"Just we can get through it all together if you breathe slow and trust. I love you beyond.
“Love always, your future wifey.”
