What Victoria Beckham wants, what she really, really wants is for her baby not to leave the British nest.
In a touching Instagram post, the spice-girl-gone-fashion-designer looks teary-eyed as she cuddles with her 18-year-old oldest son. “We are all so proud of you Brooklyn,” the proud mom captioned the picture. “Amazing A level results and off to college. We love you so much and will miss you. #yesiamcrying #emotional.”
The it-Brit photographer, whose first photography book What I See was published over the summer, will be attending Parsons School of Design in Lower Manhattan—just a short subway ride away from his namesake borough—, where he will study photography.
In an interview with GQ earlier this month, Brooklyn opened up about his move to New York City.
“I’m nervous, and my mum’s upset about me leaving,” he revealed, “but it’s really exciting. I kind of live in the moment. I don’t think people in New York will annoy me, and I feel like when I go there, I’ll meet lifelong friends. Stuff like that.”
Unlike Victoria, the rest of the Beckham clan is handling the situation more smoothly, or so it seems according to their recent Instagram posts.
“Brooklyn, I am going to miss u sooooo much xx I am so proud of you and can’t believe you have come this far! Good luck in New York!” 14-year-old Romeo penned alongside a picture with older-brother Brooklyn.
“Englishmen in New York,” wrote papa Beckham in a picture with his son, capturing the pair’s tour of New York.
We know those mommy feelings are tough, Victoria, but you’re just one private plane flight away from Brooklyn!
