Brooklyn Beckham Is Headed to College, Mum Victoria Sheds a Tear

The eldest Beckham is leaving the nest.

With a few exceptions, the Beckhams are just your average, regular family — and as such, an Instagram post by matriarch Victoria shedding a tear as her eldest abandons the nest to spread his genetically blessed wings for college, was par for the course. 

The doting mum posted a photo of herself with her 18-year-old photography phenom (he published his first tome, What I See, earlier this year to the delight of preteens across the world) which she captioned, "We are all so proud of you Brooklyn. Amazing A level results and off to college." According to The Daily Mail, the It-Brit will attend Parsons School of Design, where he will study photography. 

"We love you and we will miss you," she continued, adding the hashtag "#yesiamcrying" to let fans know her glossy complexion was courtesy of happy tears, not excessive highlighter. 

Papa Beckham also posted a photo with his son over the weekend, capturing the pair's tour of the Big Apple, soon to be Brooklyn's new home. (Yep, Brooklyn will live in New York! How clandestine.)

With a lengthy resume that includes not only a coffee table book, but also a Burberry campaign, we're guessing Brooklyn will have a leg up on his fellow photo students. Of course, being born to a world-renowned fashion designer mother and a father known for always making the shot doesn't hurt either.
