Well, it’s official. Victoria Beckham and David Beckham’s eldest son is off to college in NYC. The Beckhams, adorably tight-knit bunch that they are, all celebrated the momentous occasion recently with weepy Instagram posts and mascara-tinged tears from normally-stoic Victoria. (To call their farewell tour sweet is an understatement.) But before we get down to the nitty-gritty of the famous Beckham’s send-off, it’s important to know which college Brooklyn Beckham is going to — and why.
Brooklyn, who’s been dabbling in modeling and, more so, photography, is heading to the Big Apple in order to attend Parsons School of Art and Design to focus on his photography career. Being that his portfolio is already pretty expansive — he shot a Burberry campaign in 2016 and recently released a book, What I See — the famous teen shouldn’t have too much of a problem getting his foot in the door and pursuing his dreams. Also, not that he needs it, Brooklyn is studying on scholarship at the famous design institute.
Brooklyn — who broke up with actress Chloe Moretz in 2016 and is reportedly currently dating Madison Beer — arrived in NYC for school on Friday, Aug. 18. Not surprisingly, his famous parents came along to see their son off. Also not surprising? The super sweet (semi-embarrassing) messages Posh and Becks posted to social media about their son.
While Brooklyn’s soccer star dad kept things pretty low-key with a simple father-son selfie, along with the caption, “Englishmen in New York,” Victoria got all mom mushy on her son. “We are all so proud of you Brooklyn,” the fashion designer captioned a shot of herself hugging her son as tears streamed down her face. “Amazing A level results and off to college. We love you so much and will miss you. #YesIAmCrying #Emotional.” Awww.
Even Brooklyn’s 14-year-old brother Romeo got in on the action, posting a heartfelt message for his sibling to Instagram. Earlier on this month, the budding photographer opened up to _GQ _ magazine about his move from London to NYC for school. “I’m nervous, and my mum’s upset about me leaving,” he revealed, “but it’s really exciting. I kind of live in the moment. I don’t think people in New York will annoy me, and I feel like when I go there, I’ll meet lifelong friends. Stuff like that.”
Call us crazy, but something tells us that people will be lining up to be lifelong friends with Brooklyn. And bonus points if they don’t annoy him. Best of luck to Brooklyn — and good for him for carving out his own niche for himself. Without a doubt, we’ll be seeing a lot more of his photography in the near future. How proud his mum and dad must be.
