Romeo Beckham was born the second child of Spice Girl Victoria and footballer David Beckham.

He is believed to be the godson of Elton John, David Furnish and Elizabeth Hurley. Romeo was delivered at the Portland Hospital in Westminster.

Romeo has an older brother Brooklyn, a younger brother Cruz and a little sister named Harper.

The Beckham family moved from England to Spain in 2003 when David was transferred from Manchester United to Real Madrid.

In 2006 it was revealed that Romeo suffers from epilepsy. Because of this, Victoria prevented him from coming in the range of photographers’ camera flashes.

After David signed a new contract with football team LA Galaxy, the Beckhams relocated to Los Angeles, California on 12 July 2007.

As the family’s move came when Romeo was only young, he started speaking with an American accent, along with his two brothers.

At only eight years old, Romeo was already being recognised for his sense of style.

He placed 26th on GQ’s Best Dressed Men list in 2011, and signed a deal to bring out his own line of sunglasses the same year.

Although it always seemed like he was going to follow in his father’s footsteps, Romeo Beckham ventured into the fashion world like mother Victoria.

In December 2012, he was handpicked to model for Burberry.

Aged 10, Romeo featured in the fashion house’s spring/summer 2013 ad campaign, which also starred Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell.

The Beckhams swapped the US for the UK at the beginning of 2013. In September that year, Romeo joined football club Arsenal’s youth team with the hope of getting a professional contract.

He has also competed at county level in 3km races across England.

In December 2013, Romeo Beckham entered the prestigious Junior Knole Run, where he came 111th out of over 260 competitors.
