Early Life & Education
Romeo Beckham was born Romeo James Beckham on September 1, 2002, at the ‘Portland Hospital’ London, to David Beckham and former ‘Spice Girl’ singer and fashion designer Victoria Beckham. His godfather is Sir Elton John, while his godmother is Elizabeth Hurley.
He is the second of his parents’ four children. His other three siblings are – elder brother, Brooklyn (born 1999), younger brother, Cruz (born 2005) and youngest sister, Harper Seven (born 2011). He studied at the ‘Wetherby Preparatory School,’ London.
In 2003, Romeo and the Beckham family moved to Madrid, Spain, as David Beckham was traded from ‘Manchester United’ to ‘Real Madrid.’
Love for Football
Along with his brothers, Brooklyn and Cruz, Romeo Beckham was part of the youth team at the ‘Arsenal Football Club’ academy (just as their famous footballer father). In the beginning of 2015, Brooklyn stepped out, as he didn’t get the academy’s scholarship.
Eight months later Romeo Beckham also left the academy. Thereafter, he decided to quit the sport of football altogether. When he conveyed his decision to his father, David Beckham, he was disappointed, but he let him follow his heart.
Romeo then switched to tennis, and since 2016, he is working hard on his game. At the ‘Aegon Championship’ at Queens Club, he played with world champion Andy Murray and Nick Kyrgios.
As a Model
Romeo decided not to follow in his father’s footsteps and also didn’t take up singing like his mother, Victoria. However, like his mother, he did enter the world of fashion and modelled for the British fashion brand Burberry.
He began modelling at the age of 10, and was seen in ‘Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2013’ advertisement. Next, he appeared in the ‘Burberry Holiday’s Fall/Winter 2014.’
Romeo has appeared in several magazines. In 2016, he featured in ‘Vogue Me, China,’ and in 2018, he was on the cover of ‘British Vogue.’ In 2014, he received the ‘Model of the Year Award.’ With his floppy locks and dapper sense of style, he is considered as an upcoming top model.
Romeo has appeared in such TV series as ‘Wimbledon’ and ‘ 4‘Today at Wimbledon.’ He was also a part of the TV shows ‘Victoria Beckham : Coming to America’ and ‘VH1: All Access.’
A Social Media Star
Romeo created his Instagram account in 2017 to wish his elder brother Brooklyn on his birthday. In one single day he gained 200,000 followers, which is a record of sorts. He has over 2.8 million followers on Instagram and over 1 million followers on Facebook.
Romeo was earlier dating the ‘Stranger Things’ actress Millie Bobby Brown. The two first met in 2016 at the UNICEF’s 70th anniversary gala. Millie and Romeo were assigned to give away the awards at the gala. They started dating in March 2018.
