The first-born Beckham, Brooklyn, turned 17 today and his super-celeb parents couldn’t be prouder — and turned into the parents that we all know and love to wish their son a happy one. Instagram stars in their own right, David Beckham and Victoria Beckham took to social media to wish their almost-adult “baby” boy the happiest of b-days and it’s making us love ’em even more than we already obviously do.

His loving papa, David Beckham, took to Instagram to post an adorably sweet father-son pic along with the caption, “17 years ago today this little man came into this world and changed our lives in so many ways … We were given the most precious gift that makes us smile and proud every time he walks through the door… Not so little anymore but look at the smile ❤ HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUST ❤”

Mama dearest, Victoria Beckham, was also quick to wish her eldest a very happy day, posting to her own Instagram account, “Happy Birthday beautiful boy. We are so proud and love you so much❤Can’t believe baby Brooklyn is 17 today X”

Married back in 1999, David and Victoria are the parents of four beautiful mini-Beckhams including Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, as well as little sweetheart Harper Beckham who are all following their parents footsteps into the hearts of those who adore the fabulous and fashionable (as well as ‘footballers’).
