‘I Can’t Help How I Was Born’

Brooklyn Peltz Beckham understands he was born into privilege.

The eldest child of soccer star David Beckham and fashion designer (and former Spice Girl) Victoria Beckham has heard the nepo baby conversation throughout his whole life and has done what he can to pave his own way. That doesn’t mean people aren’t still calling him out (despite his best efforts to stand on his own).

“I mean, I can’t help how I was born,” he told InStyle in a new interview published June 10. “I couldn’t ask for better parents and I’m just trying to work my ass off and trying to make a name for myself. That’s all I can say, really.”

Brooklyn, 25, has tried his hand at a few things while figuring out what he wants to do with his life, whether it was playing soccer like his dad or entering the fashion world like his mom. Along the way, he said his parents always encouraged him to shut out the noise from the public telling him that he couldn’t do it.

“It makes me… I kind of like it, in a way, just because it makes me really want to prove to people… Until two years ago, I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. I think with all the rubbish I get, my mum’s just like, ‘Prove them wrong. Never respond to that rubbish, just prove them wrong,'” he said. “I think what I wanted for so long—especially the last few years—is I really wanted to make a name for myself.”

Ultimately he decided the food space was where he wanted to settle down. Despite his Facebook Watch reality show, Cookin’ With Brooklyn, that didn’t really go well, he still has a passion for food and is launching a new mysterious venture this fall called Cloud23. The name is inspired by his dad’s jersey number and the day of the month he proposed to his wife, Nicola Peltz Beckham (both No. 23).

“I’m always going to have haters and that’s fine, and it’s probably going to get worse,” he said. I hope not, but I’m excited for people to try [Cloud23] and I don’t know, what else can I say? Where would I want my business to be in 20 years? I want my product to be [everywhere]. I would love to have my own restaurant. You have to be happy to be successful. That’s important.”
