However, talented youngster Romeo has followed in his mother”s footsteps.
The fashionista has been featured on several billboards modeling Burberry”s latest campaign.
“Romeo might be on the billboards and be the Burberry model, but he”s also one of those little boys who loves going home and playing on PlayStation or going over to the park and having a kick around,” said David.
“[My children] are very grounded, they do normal things – as normal as they can, obviously, given our situation.”
Football fans are betting on Brooklyn’s success as a footballer, with favourable 9/2 odds for Brooklyn to play in the Premiership League.
