They’ve been accused of pushing their children into the limelight into the past, but it seems that A-list couple Victoria and David Beckham have made an effort to shield their four youngsters from the fame game.
Wonderland Magazine interviewed 17-year-old Brooklyn Beckham. And he revealed that he had no idea about his parent’s celebrity status until he became a teenager!
“I didn’t actually know that they [his family] were big until I was about 13,” he said.
Recalling the moment it finally sank in he added:
“I went to a football game and people were shouting my dad’s name and I was like, ‘What?! Oh my God. I don’t look at them like that.'”
But despite not being exposed to the glitz and glamour of the showbiz world too early, the eldest child in the Beckham clan is still keen to forge a career of his own. But this time it’s behind, rather than in front, of the camera as a photographer.
And he reveals he is not “not just doing it because of who my parents are”. Brooklyn – who has 9.8 million followers on his Instagram page – plans to release a book of his pictures, called What I See, in June.
He told the magazine:
“It’s pretty exciting to put my work out there and show people I’m not just doing it because of who my parents are.”
