David Beckham achieved it all in his blossoming footballing career, and it’s still strange not seeing him playing every week.
He has almost become our version of Kim Kardashian, just without the sex tape. Though, with no disrespect to Kim, his talent certainly justifies his fame.
He can barely go to the toilet without the tabloids or some trashy gossip weekly reporting it, which is pretty sad, but he’s a national treasure. An English football legend. Our Golden Balls.
But remember when he had kids, and everyone wondered why on earth he called his little boy after a place in America?
Well his eldest, Brooklyn, turns 16 years today. SIXTEEN. I don’t know about anyone else, but that makes me feel really, really old.
Becks posted the below pictures on his Facebook page earlier, which kind of hit home how quickly 16 years can flash before you.
We remember that picture as if it was yesterday. Now Brooklyn’s all grown up and being ditched by Arsenal. Bless him.
