Can you believe that Romeo Beckham is 17 years-old? Nope, neither can we.

The second child of David and Victoria Beckham celebrated his special day with the entire family complete with a doughnut cake and a singsong of Happy Birthday but in their Instagrams, the proud parents revealed the sweet nickname they refer to Romeo as.

At eight years-old, Harper Seven isn’t old enough to have her own Instagram account but Victoria posted a message on her own stories on behalf of the youngest Beckham.

Captioning a photo of Harper hugging her older brother was her message, “Love you Romeo. Happy birthday Roro Love Harper x.”

Roro has a nice ring to it, that’s for sure!

Dad-of-four David referred to his second son by his nickname in his own post. The football superstar shared an adorable photo of a young Romeo dressed in a black and white waistcoat and matching hat smiling adorably at the camera.

“Happy birthday my big boy … 17 today I can’t believe how fast it’s gone . I’m so proud of you , growing from this beautiful boy into a handsome young man and still you are not as tall as dad just yet .. Happy birthday RoRo we love you @romeobeckham @victoriabeckham @brooklynbeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven ♥️ btw NICE OUTFIT 😂,” he teased.

Aside from her Instagram stories, Victoria also shared a sweet snap of her four children to celebrate Romeo’s birthday.

In the snap, 17 year-old Romeo stands behind his three siblings- Brooklyn, 20, Cruz, 14 and eight year-old Harper.

“Happy Birthday Romeo x 🎂 🎁 🍰 I cant believe u are 17 today!!! We are so proud of u and love u so so much xxxx ✨✨✨✨✨,” the former Spice Girl captioned it and once again, fans noted how all four kids are chips off the old block.

“Have you ever seen children who look more like their parents?” one of Victoria’s followers questioned.

Another remarked, “All the kids look like their daddy.”

Others just couldn’t handle how gorgeous the four are with one saying, “I swear the beckham children are just so beautiful.” Yep, we have to agree with you on that one!

They may appear to have the ultimate life of luxury but when it comes to their parenting approach, the Beckhams keep it down to earth.

Seeing as both and he and Victoria come from humble backgrounds and worked their way to the top, they don’t want their kids to grow up spoiled.

“I want my kids to be able to understand that they are very fortunate that they have that, but other kids around the world don’t and I will continue to fight for that,” he told HELLO! magazine.

“It’s a silly thing to say but our kids are the future. I’m very lucky to live in a city, in a country that the kids can have a great meal, they can drink fresh water, they can look after themselves and we’re very fortunate that we have that.”
