Victoria Beckham Used Brooklyn Beckham’s Birthday To Celebrate Her And David Beckham’s Parenting, And People Have Thoughts

Victoria ended up taking the negative comments in her stride, and had the most iconic response to the backlash.

When it comes to famous parents, none have made family life their brand quite like David and Victoria Beckham.

By the time that Brooklyn was born, David and Victoria had reached unfathomable levels of fame, and the press invasion was relentless. In a particularly upsetting home video that is shown in the Netflix series, toddler Brooklyn can be seen looking frightened as fans and paparazzi hound the car that David is driving his family in.

And all of this perhaps explains why Victoria was feeling pretty proud of her and David’s parenting as the family celebrated Brooklyn’s 25th birthday on Monday.

The fashion mogul initially honored her firstborn with a sweet throwback video of little Brooklyn singing along to “Viva Forever” while watching a Spice Girls concert with his dad.

Victoria captioned the video: “Happy birthday Brooklyn. We all love you so much. Generous, funny, talented with the kindest most giving heart. We are so proud of the son, big brother and husband you are.”

“You always put everyone before yourself. Your love and energy is so special and touches everyone you meet. We love you!!!!! @brooklynpeltzbeckham @davidbeckham,” she concluded.

However, her follow-up post raised eyebrows, with Victoria taking the time to acknowledge the role that she and David played in Brooklyn’s life.

Posting a photo of herself with the birthday boy and her husband, Victoria wrote: “Today we celebrate Brooklyn turning 25!!! David I love you so much and I’m so proud of the parents we are. We are a good team!!!! Happy birthday @brooklynpeltzbeckham 🎂 🎈@davidbeckham”

But this seemingly didn’t land as anticipated, with many of Victoria’s followers calling her out for using her son’s birthday to give herself and David a pat on the back.

And it seems as though Victoria was able to take the negative comments in stride as she poked fun at her divisive caption on her Instagram story.
