Playing Brooklyn Beckham 'Didn't Actually Know' His Parents David and Victoria Beckham Were Famous Until Age 13

Why would a kid think Mom and Dad were anything more than... Mom and Dad?

Brooklyn Beckham, who appears on the latest cover of Wonderland, expresses as much inside the magazine's Spring Issue, where the son of soccer star David Beckham and Spice Girl-turned-fashion icon Victoria Beckham admits he didn't really know anything about his parents' fame until he turned 13.

Thank you @christianoita @wonderland! So pleased to be on the cover of the Spring 17 issue.

"I didn’t actually know that they were big until I was about 13," the now 17-year-old confesses. "I went to a football game and people were shouting my dad’s name and I was like, ‘What?! Oh my God.’ I don’t look at them like that."

But despite the revelation, it was important for Brooklyn to blaze his own career path.

"It’s pretty exciting to put my work out there and show people that I’m not just doing it because of who my parents are," he explained, addressing his upcoming photography book, What I See, which is set to hit shelves on May 4.
