David Beckham Is a Total Doting Dad Dropping Son Brooklyn Off at College

Brooklyn Beckham and David Beckham at Parsons

The retired soccer star's eldest son has officially left the nest!

Brooklyn Beckham is ready to hit the books!

David Beckham traveled to New York City to help check his eldest son into Parsons School of Design, even tagging along for the college's Orientation Day on Tuesday.

Despite temps being in the 80s, the 42-year-old retired soccer pro looked ready for fall in a chambray shirt, white tee, dark denim and yellow wool cap, while Brooklyn channeled pure '90s grunge in a flannel button-down, Soundgarden T-shirt, ripped black denim and Doc Martens.


Both of Brooklyn's parents have gotten adorably emotional about him leaving the nest. While in the Big Apple, David snagged a selfie with his son, writing on Instagram, "Exciting times and hard work coming for this little man ... Proud of you bust ❤️."

And last week, Victoria shared a sweet snap cuddled up to her son, admitting that she had definitely been crying as the family wished Brooklyn off.

Already accomplished at his craft, Brooklyn will continue to study photography at Parsons. During an exclusive interview with ET earlier this month, he shared, "I'm really excited. Photography is [it], that's what I really want to do."

To no one's surprise, New York City is already looking good on him!
