We love that the oldest of the four Beckham kids, 16-year-old Brooklyn Beckham, is not one to shy away from PDPAs—Public Displays of Parental Affection. You may recall this photo his mom, Victoria Beckham, 40, shared from the 2013 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards with her, ohhh, (then) seven million Twitter followers...

"Special evening with my family celebrating women at the @BazaarUK awards in London," she tweeted along with this photo. "I'm so proud of Brooklyn x vb." 

Indeed, it looks like David and Victoria are doing their part in raising a feminist!

To honour Brooklyn's birthday yesterday, proud dad David Beckham, 39, posted two photos of himself and the birthday boy on Facebook, with the caption, "Happy Birthday to my big boy xx." 


The first, a photo of David kissing Brooklyn's head as they cuddle on the couch...

Happy Birthday, Brooklyn!
