Even Brooklyn Beckham has his "ups and downs."
ET exclusively sat down with the 18-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham on Tuesday at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, to celebrate the release of his photography book, What I See. During our interview, Brooklyn opened up about his No. 1 passion, what it's really like growing up Beckham and why he decided not to follow in his famous father's soccer footsteps.
Take one quick look through Brooklyn's Instagram and it's easy to see that the eldest Beckham boy clearly has an eye for photography. And his parents couldn't be more proud, especially after seeing his work honored in an art exhibit and published in his new photography book, What I See, out today.
"My mom cried," he revealed. "Like, the last day I was getting everything finished, like the paper material and all that. So, yeah, my mom cried. She's really proud."
Brooklyn said his dad also likes taking pictures, but his fashion-forward mama prefers being the focus." My mom likes getting her photo taken," he joked. "So it's not the same thing."
Next up, Brooklyn -- who admits he acts more like dad but looks more like mom -- will be heading to the Big Apple.
"I'm actually moving to New York in August to study photography for four years," he revealed. "I'm really excited. Photography is [it], that's what I really want to do."
"I mean, I love taking photos," he added. "So I think this is it for me. I've been interning for [British fashion photographer] Nick Knight, which was really fun, it was really cool to do. He's an awesome guy. He puts me to work!"
But just because he comes from a famous family doesn't mean he gets special perks. Brooklyn tells ET that growing up with a professional athlete as his dad and a former Spice Girl as his mom has plenty of advantages, but many disadvantages, too.
"I feel like it has its ups and downs," he confessed. "I feel like I get opportunities that most people my age don't get."
"But, like, I can't do what most 18 year olds do," he continued. "Like, I can't go out partying all the time, I have to work and get up early. So it kind of has its ups and downs."
