When both your parents are international celebrities and Armani models — and your mom is also a singer and a top fashion designer — your destiny is almost assured.
That is the case for young Romeo Beckham, the 10-year-old son of David Beckham and his wife Victoria Beckham, formerly known as Posh Spice of 1990s pop girl group Spice Girls. Young Romeo has just landed his first modeling gig, appearing in Burberry’s new Spring Summer 2013 advertisements.

According to Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey, Romeo “was a joy to work with and really stole the show.” He added: “This season’s campaign lights up with the infectious energy of an amazing young cast of old and new Burberry family…. We had such fun shooting the campaign and I think that comes through in the images, which really reflect the upbeat spirit of the collection.”

The campaign was shot by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino and features a mix of Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London and Burberry Brit clothing, with a focus on the brand’s iconic trenchcoat and outerwear.
Romeo is the second oldest Beckham boy; he has two brothers, Brooklyn, 13 and Cruz, 7. And then there’s the new baby girl, Harper, just five months old.

In hindsight, it’s probably no coincidence that David and his three sons walked the red carpet at the premiere last week of Viva Forever!, a musical based on the songs of Spice Girls, wearing bespoke Burberry suits.
The big question is, will Victoria Beckham branch out and design children’s clothing soon, as she’s already got a stable of child models?
