David Beckham broke down into tears after a surprise visit from his son, Brooklyn Beckham, for the football star’s 43rd birthday on May 2.
Brooklyn, who studies at the Parsons School of Design in New York, does not live at home in England with his parents anymore. He flew out to surprise his dad for his birthday on Wednesday, and fans melted at the heartwarming reaction from David. The loving dad hugged his 19-year-old son and was reduced to tears.
“What are you doing here?” David asked in shock, making it clear that he had no idea he was in for this surprise.
The whole family was taken aback by Brooklyn’s arrival. In the video posted by both, David and Victoria Beckham, little Harper can be heard in the background saying, “I didn’t know Brooklyn was coming!”
David captioned the video, “Best birthday surprise, my big boy coming home.” He also tagged his wife and sons, including Romeo and Cruz and added a #HarperSeven for his daughter, who does not have her own Instagram account yet.
Fans poured in with their thoughts on the sweet video and commented under David’s post.
One wrote, “made me cry a bit hahaha so cute.”
“Aw there’s something in my eye…”, said another.
Another follower added, “Priceless. Love the softness in their voices.”
Thousands of others wished the football star a happy birthday.

Victoria also posted the same video, and captioned it with, “The biggest surprise of the day….Welcome home @brooklynbeckham X happy birthday @davidbeckham I love u so much x kisses”.
Victoria also posted a picture of David with Romeo, Cruz and Harper to wish her husband a happy birthday. She posted the picture before Brooklyn’s return, and it seems like he heard his mother’s wish.
Her caption read, “Happy birthday to the best daddy!! X we all love u so much!!! So many kisses from us all xxxx we miss you Brooklyn X”.
