The retired soccer star took to Instagram to share an old picture of himself and Brooklyn, calling him a “precious gift” who has “changed our lives in so many ways”.
He wrote: “17 years ago on this day this little man came into this world and changed our life’s in so many ways …
“We were given the most precious gift that makes us smile and proud every time he walks through the door … Not so little anymore but look at the smile. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUST (sic)”
Meanwhile, David – who also has Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11 and Harper, four, with wife Victoria Beckham – previously revealed the 41-year-old fashion designer is finding it difficult to see her eldest son dating.
He shared: “I think it’s easier for me than Brooklyn’s mum, you know? To see her little boy go out and date … Obviously for mums I think it’s slightly more difficult with the boys but obviously once Harper [their daughter] starts [dating] … I don’t even want to think about that at the moment.”
