How Romeo is morphing into dad David Beckham from football and peroxide hair to PDAs

ROMEO Beckham may have made his football debut this week – but a love of the Beautiful Game isn’t the only thing he and his father David Beckham have in common.

David and Victoria Beckham’s second-eldest child played for Inter Miami’s reserve team Fort Lauderdale CF in the first game of his career on Sunday.

The 19-year-old played right-wing just like his dad, and showed he's clearly picked up the former England captain's ball skills.

But, as well as his career, Romeo also seems to be morphing into his 46-year-old dad when it comes to his looks and his style.

We take a closer look at how Romeo and footballing legend David are extremely similar…

The model looks

David is very well-known for his good looks, and, in the past has modelled for everyone from H&M to Armani to Dolce & Gabbana.

In 2014, Tommy Hilfiger even named him the Underwear Model of the Century.

And, while he hasn't posed in his undies just yet, Romeo is already on a modelling path.

When he was just 12 years old, Romeo posed for Burberry – and he looked adorable.

Earlier this year, he also modelled for Saint Laurent.

The shaved peroxide look

Throughout his footballing career, David was always trying different hairstyles, including corn-rows and spiked hair.

One stand-out crop was the bleach blonde buzz cut he sported in the Noughties.

And in May of this year, Romeo debuted a very similar style.

David even commented on the likeness when his son showed his new look off on Instagram, writing: “Nice hair… I wonder where u got that idea from."

Football shirt and top-knot combo

Of course, as a footballer, David was often in his football shirt on the pitch.

But Romeo has been seen wearing his dad's famous number 7 shirt he wore for both England and Manchester United.

His hair was even tied up in a man bun and looked just like the hairdo Becks used to rock in the mid-2000s when Romeo was just a little boy.


Posh and Becks have been public with their affection for each other ever since they got engaged in 1998.

And Romeo and his model girlfriend Mia Regan are just as keen to show PDAs.

The pair – who have been together since May 2019 – are always cuddling up to each other and kissing in their posts on Instagram.

Floppy hair

Another one of David's famous hairstyles was his floppy curtains, which he wore in the early stages of his Manchester United career in the mid-90s.

And it's also another one that Romeo tried once.

He's clearly a fan of his dad's luscious locks.

Jesus necklace

In the mid-Noughties, David was setting the trend for wearing big, blingy, Jesus necklaces.

And almost 20 years on, Romeo is making sure they're still in fashion, wearing a cross around his neck.

But the young star clearly prefers a more subtle crucifix than his dad's.


Bad hair days happen to the best of us, and David has clearly taught his son that on the rare occasion that happens, it's best to cover it up with a beanie hat.

It seems he's even recommended mustard is the best colour for his complexion.

Baggy trackies

David and Romeo both love tracksuits – and both wear them baggy.

David was always known for making uncool clothes look cool, and Romeo has done just that by pairing Crocs with a Burberry hoodie.

Romeo really is a chip off the old Beck.
