Dad a footballer, mum a singer, brother a photographer -- and here's what Cruz Beckham wants to be

31 August 2016 / 1 month 3 weeks ago

Cruz Beckham is learning guitar in a bid for pop stardom after a clip of him singing went viral.

The 11-year-old child of former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and retired soccer player David Beckham wants to become a singer and has taken up the instrument to improve his musicianship.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Cruz has a natural affinity with music and he's been desperate to learn the guitar. He's had lessons for months and is constantly strumming away, singing along.

"Obviously he still has far to go, but there's certainly potential there.

"He's got a natural stage presence."

The news of Cruz's new musical venture comes four months after his mother Victoria posted a video on Instagram of the schoolboy singing. The clip went viral, and it wasn't long before it caught the attention of Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun. The move to learn guitar comes as Cruz aims to make himself an all-round performer. 

Cruz - who has two brothers Brookyln, 17, and Romeo, 13, as well as a sister, four-year-old Harper - isn't the only young Beckham to be thinking about their career already. Brooklyn has decided he wants a future in photography, as he knew "straight away" that it was something he wanted to do.

He said previously: "I studied photography in high school and straight away I knew it was something I was interested in.

"When I left school I started shooting in my spare time and really started enjoying it. I bought a few books and then I ended up interning for David Sims on a couple of shoots."

Fashion designer Victoria, 41, has also expressed her pride in her children, saying that they are "hard-working" and that she couldn't ask for more.

She said: "You don't have a rule book when you have a child. You just do the best that you can and I think the kids are doing a pretty good job.

"They're well-mannered, hard-working, they're fun and they're happy kids. So what more can you ask for?"
