Happy 9th Birthday Romeo Beckham!

Name: Romeo James Beckham

Date of Birth: September 1, 2002

Parents: David Beckham & Victoria Beckham

Siblings: Brooklyn Joseph (03/04/99), Cruz David (01/20/05) & Harper Seven (07/10/11)


  • Romeo arrived via c-section in Westminster, London, weighing in at 7lbs, 4oz
  • Elton John and David Furnish are reportedly godfathers to both Romeo and his older brother Brooklyn
  • The boys’ godmother is Elizabeth Hurley
  • In 2006 it was revealed that Romeo was epileptic after Victoria protected him from the paparazzi’s camera flashes, telling them angrily: “He’s got epilepsy… all that flashing will start an epileptic fit… you can’t do that.”
  • Last year, Romeo celebrated his 8th birthday with a laser tag party in LA

“You’re always nervous having children but it’s the most beautiful thing in the world, so we’re both delighted.” – David, on the birth of his second son.

“They are so different. I mean you’ve got Brooklyn who is a real boy, he’s turning into a teenager. It takes him quite some time to do his hair in the morning before he goes to school. Then we have Romeo who loves fashion. He likes to go out in a suit with a bowler hat… he’s a real fashion lover. And Cruz just wants to break dance every opportunity he gets.” – Victoria, on her sons’ distinct personalities.

“We make it work. We make time for each other. We work hard as individuals, but our main job is being parents to our boys. Our boys are our lives. Our number one priority is our boys, but we make time for ourselves and go to dinners and romantic weekends. You know, you make it work.” – David, on his marriage.

    I’m pretty sure Cruz’s birthday is actually the 20th of February, not January. 🙂
    I apologize for being ignorant, but I’m just wondering, if Romeo is epileptic (didn’t know until I read this!), then how was he able to do laser tag? Wouldn’t laser tag cause a fit as well, since there are blinking lights?
    I honestly don’t know much about epilepsy and am just curious. I mean no harm.

      I was thinking the same thing as I read that.. maybe since the lasers don’t flash? lol just a wild guess. I laughed when I read that all Cruz wants to do is break dance, these boys seem well adjusted and normal

      only a small percentage of people with this condition are what they call photo sensitive

    Is he really epileptic? Maybe he grew out of it. I suffer with epilepsy and if i was around as many camera flashes as he is I would no doubt have far more seizures because i am photosensitive.

    He may have grown out of being photosensitive… some people have their triggers and seizure types change as they get older. I have epilepsy, so I know how it can change, although in Romeo’s case, this is just a guess
