Brooklyn Beckham is all grown up and college-bound! The 18-year-old, who’s been busy spending quality time with his fam (sometimes on the set of Modern Family) before he leaves their Beverly Hills home, is about to start his first year of college in New York City to study “art and photography, like film and digital — a mix of both.” Needless to say, his fam is a bit emotional — particularly Victoria Beckham.

The proud mama couldn’t help but share her joy — and a touch of sadness — on Instagram in a seriously touching post that was an ode to the impressive, driven young man Beckham has become.

In the snap of the former Spice Girl curled up next to her son, she seriously pulled on our heart strings, writing “We are all so proud of you Brooklyn. Amazing A level results and off to college. We love you so much and will miss you. #yesiamcrying #emotional x.” UGH, we’d be crying too, Posh!

Earlier in the week, the whole family reportedly enjoyed one last dinner together at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica and dropped in on LA’s Museum of Ice Cream, where father and son took this sweet pic, which the soccer superstar captioned: “Still not too old for a little ice cream with Dad.” Awwww!

Yesterday, the fame touched down in the Big Apple to get the aspiring photog all settled in and ready for his first day. “Englishmen in New York,” wrote David on Instagram, visibly beaming from ear to ear in a selfie showing off a bit of the Manhattan skyline.

Considering that Brooklyn has already published his own photography book, titled What I See ($16) earlier this month, we’ve got a sneaking suspicion he’ll do just fine.

Knock ’em dead, Brooklyn!
