In news bound to make you feel old, David and Victoria Beckham's eldest son, Brooklyn, has just celebrated his 18th birthday.

To mark their boy's entry into adulthood, the Beckhams took to social media to share well-wishes, photos and special memories of their firstborn.

And, in typical Beckham fashion, their tributes went all out.

In a post to Instagram, mum Victoria shared a collage of images dating right back to her ultrasound photo. "Happy birthday Buster," she captioned the photo album. "The most beautiful, caring, talented young man."

His equally proud dad, David, also shared a selection of photos of his eldest son.

"18 years of memories," he wrote.

Dad also posted a throwback snap from the day of Brooklyn's birth in 1999 (with a very 90s haircut to boot).

Along with the photo, David penned a sweet birthday message to "my best friend and my big boy".

"So on this day 18 years ago this little man came into our lives ..." David wrote. "To say we felt blessed is an understatement." Recalling that Brooklyn "never slept through the night", David shared that the only way he and Victoria could get their newborn to sleep was to take him for a drive.

"And it had to be BoyZone on the radio," he said.

Quipping that his son now sleeps through the whole night "without needing a song", the doting dad added, "he has gone from this beautiful baby boy to become this handsome, polite and driven young man. I'm proud that he lived through my career with me and I'm even prouder about the person that he has become.

"Happy birthday Bus. You can now officially take dad for a drink down the pub."

And, according to Brooklyn's Instagram account, it looks as though that's exactly where they went ...
