David Beckham tears up as Brooklyn surprises him with a secret visit on his birthday

David Beckham got the 'best birthday surprise' when his eldest son Brooklyn decided to pay him a secret visit on his special day.

The dad-of-four turned 43 yesterday, and started celebrations with wife Victoria and his brood – minus Brooklyn, who’s now studying at university in New York.

Wishing happy birthday to her husband of almost twenty years with an adorable picture of him with Cruz, Romeo and little Harper, Victoria said how they were missing the eldest of their bunch.

However, David had a big surprise in store, as Brooklyn secretly came home to join in on his birthday celebrations. While out for a meal in a restaurant, the 19-year-old showed up and left his dad close to tears.

The sweet moment was captured in a video, which David posted with the caption: ‘Best birthday surprise, my big boy coming home @brooklynbeckham @victoriabeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven’.

Victoria also shared the same sweet video on her own Instagram account, writing in the caption: ‘The biggest surprise of the day…. Welcome home @brooklynbeckham X happy birthday @davidbeckham I love u so much x kisses.’

Fans rushed to comment on the heart-warming father and son moment, with one saying: ‘That’s father son goals right there. I hope there is still that kind of bond between me and my boy when he’s all grown up. A credit to your efforts. Smashing the dad thing still.’

A second said: ‘Possibly one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in some tome. What a wonderful father and family 💙’, while another wrote: ‘If that ain’t love I don’t know what is . Happy Birthday David I’m certain it was fabulous 🎂🍺’.

A fourth also commented: ‘How wonderful. No matter how big you get, the bond you have with your dad never breaks ❤️’.
