Top 10 Things You Should Know About Brooklyn Beckham
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should be familiar with the name Brooklyn Beckham. Social media was at storm this weekend when Ben Chan posted a photo of this international hottie arriving at the NAIA airport. Turns out, the 18-year-old Beckham is in Manila for his book signing and a store launch.
In case some of you still don’t have a clue who Brooklyn is, we stalked the young celebrity’s feed and found several interesting things that you need to know, and why we think he’s the next big thing.
1. His parents are famous.
His dad is a well-known professional footballer, and his mom is Posh Spice. Need we say more?
2. His girlfriend is a Hollywood celebrity.
Four years ago at Paris Fashion Week, Brooklyn met actress Chloë Grace Moretz, and since then, the two have been in a long distance relationship. While their romance is an on-and-off again thing, they seem to be smitten to each other—just look at their Instagram, there’s no shortage of cheesy photos.
3. He knows how to play football.
Not only did Brooklyn get his dad’s good-looking genes, but he, too, got into football for a time. However, Brooklyn wanted to pursue another career and hobby.
4. He likes photography.
…And he’s good at it.
5. He just moved to the USA.
Brooklyn began another chapter in his life, that is college, and flew miles away from home to take an undergraduate program in photography at Parsons School of Design in New York City. Word has it, his mom Victoria has been crying buckets since he left!
6. He shot an ad campaign for Burberry Fragrance.
With parents like David and Victoria, you would think that their kids are talented like them. In fact, they are! In 2016, Brooklyn proved he’s just more than his surname when he was hired to be behind the lens and take a series of photos for Burberry’s ‘This Is Brit’ fragrance.
7. He published a book called What I See.
A year after his Burberry stint, Brooklyn can also add “author” to his resume for his photography book. Here, you can see pictures of Brooklyn and glimpses of his life at home and his travels.
8. He also models.
Following the footsteps of his mom, Brooklyn entered the world of fashion through modeling at the age of 15, fronting covers and becoming the face of fashion brands. Just last December, the eldest of the Beckham kids won the Reader’s Choice Celebrity Male Model of the Year 2017 by Models.com. Safe to say, his career isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
9. He does parkour.
Brooklyn landed his first acting gig two years ago for a music video of British boy band, The Vamps. In that same video, Brooklyn shows off his parkour skills, jumping off from a house onto the grass.
10. He’s an ambassador for local clothing brand Bench.
Add to the list of fashion brands tied to the British celebrity, Filipino RTW brand Bench named Brooklyn as one of its newest Global Benchsetters and even brought him to the country to meet his Filipino fans.
