Early Life & Family
Born on February 20, 2005, in Madrid, Spain, Cruz Beckham is the third of four children of David and Victoria. He has two older brothers, Brooklyn Joseph (born March 4, 1999) and Romeo James (September 1, 2002), and a younger sister, Harper Seven (July 10, 2011).
Cruz was born at a time when his father was playing for Real Madrid, at Ruber International Hospital, Madrid. “Cruz” is the Spanish word for cross. He spent the first couple of years of his life in Madrid. In 2007, David left Real Madrid and signed with LA Galaxy, a club in Los Angeles, California, USA. The family moved with him.
In February 2019, David Beckham shared a short clip on social media in which he can be seen running with Romero and Cruz. This is apparently a routine in the Beckham household as David joins his sons for a three-mile morning run to their school.
Stint at Arsenal Academy
All the three Beckham brothers joined Arsenal Academy for soccer training in 2014. Before them, David Beckham too had received training at the Arsenal Academy. David believed that the Arsenal Academy would serve as the perfect launchpad for his sons’ careers. However, none of them has been able to leave a lasting impression on the game.
Among the three brothers, Cruz Beckham is arguably the most talented when it comes to soccer. He has taken part in a number of training sessions with Arsenal Academy. His current situation with the academy has not been clarified yet.
David Beckham revealed in an interview that he felt “heartbroken” after all three of them stopped playing soccer. However, he has high hopes for his daughter, Harper, who plays the sport every Sunday.
As a Singer
When Cruz Beckham was two years old, he performed breakdance in front of cheering Spice Girls fans during a reunion tour at Madison Square Garden. He has apparently inherited his mother’s talent for music and performance. In September 2016, Victoria spoke about her son’s musical talent during an interview, stating “He’s so musical. We didn’t even realise he could sing. He was always playing football.” Before that, David shared a video on Instagram that showed Cruz performing ‘Pitch Perfect’s “Cups” song ‘When I’m Gone’, which was sung by Anna Kendrick in the film.
In November 2016, Cruz Beckham posted an acoustic cover of Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson’s ‘Home to Mama’. Not long after, the Canadian pop star responded on Twitter, “Young Cruz! Great job buddy #hometomama.”
In December 2019, his first single, ‘If Everyday Was Christmas’, was released live on Capital Radio. The music video for the song was released on 16 December on his YouTube channel. It has since garnered more than four million views.
Cruz Beckham has aspirations of working together with the likes of British superstars Calvin Harris and Ed Sheeran. The latter is currently serving as his mentor. Cruz and his family attended Glastonbury Festival in England to watch Sheeran perform in June 2017. Sheeran, in an interview with The Sun, revealed that he had given Cruz some lessons on songwriting during their time together. Furthermore, music mogul Simon Cowell has expressed an interest in offering Cruz a record deal with his label Syco.
