David Beckham was all emotional following a surprise from his oldest son who popped up on him during his birthday lunch.

The Manchester United football legend who turned 43 on Tuesday treated himself and family to a lunch in a London restaurant on his birthday, but in the absence of his oldest son, Brooklyn.

During the birthday lunch, the 19-year-old snuck up behind his father in a video shared on both David and wife Victoria Beckham’s Instagram accounts. 

David became instantly emotional, tearing up as his son pulled him in for a sweet embrace. 


"What are you doing here?” a clearly overwhelmed David said in the video after giving him a kiss on the cheek. "I missed you so much."

"Best birthday surprise, my big boy coming home," the father of four captioned the post. 


 The family’s other members, daughter Harper Seven and younger sons Romeo and Cruz, who all reside in London, were also in attendance. Brooklyn, meanwhile, lives in New York where he studies photography at The Parsons School of Design.

In the video, Harper can be heard reacting to her big brother’s birthday surprise, exclaiming, “I didn’t know Brooklyn was coming.”

The Spice Girl singer also shared a family photo from the big day of her husband and the three younger children posing sweetly together. 

"Happy birthday to the best daddy!! X we all love u so much!!! So many kisses from us all xxxx we miss u, @brooklynbeckham X,” she wrote, signaling that perhaps she didn’t even know the 19-year-old would soon crash the festivities.
