David Beckham and his eldest son, Brooklyn, went fishing in Dorset, England, on Tuesday. The retired soccer star is close with his four children, regularly taking them on individual outings. On Tuesday, the 40-year-old and his 16-year-old son wore matching Barbour jackets and jeans and both finished the look with a flat cap, or baker boy cap.
Brooklyn is not only following in his dad's fashionable footsteps, but he is also copying his dad’s fitness prowess. On Father’s Day the pair practiced their boxing skills together, and they both shared workout pictures on their Instagram account. While Brooklyn took the session in his stride, David appeared to feel the burn as he wrote: “Arms shaking, hands about to fall off.”
For the fishing trip Tuesday, the pair smiled for the camera, sharing moments from their day out on social media with a selfie. David now has an impressive 7.4 million followers on Instagram. “Bonding time with your kids is always so special. ... Dad and Brooklyn fishing outing,” David captioned one photo of the two, aboard a boat. The picture showed the Dorset coastline, crowded with boats in the background, according to Hello.
David and Brooklyn joined local fishermen to catch lobster and crab, before later being mobbed by fans who caught wind of the famous father-son duo in Weymouth. Brooklyn shared a selfie as the boat cruised along, without his jacket, along with the caption: “Fishing with dad.”
Brooklyn is fast becoming a social media sensation and reached 2 million followers on Instagram on his dad’s 40th birthday. As Brooklyn is becoming older he is increasingly appearing to take after his father, signing up for a youth soccer team. He also sported tattoos -- albeit fakes ones -- at the Coachella music festival in California.
And he joined his father to the set of the upcoming film “King Arthur” on Friday. David is doing a cameo in the film, which is being directed by Guy Ritchie. The teen posted on Instagram a picture of the entire cast cheering at the camera. He also has opened a new Twitter account recently.
