This feels like Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin all over again.
In case you’ve blocked that saga out of your mind, the two of them got married, young, and went on to give extensive interviews about their relationship. There’s also a documentary series.
Watch that if you need some help falling asleep.
Okay, on to Brooklyn Beckham, now engaged to Nicola Peltz, who is four years his senior and heir to a substantial fortune from her parents one day.
Congrats, I guess?
Some background on who she is, and the family that Brooklyn is marrying into, per The Daily Mail:
Nicola Peltz, at 25, is the youngest of eight siblings — six of whom are boys.
She tells interviewers she was a tomboy who dreamed of playing hockey for a living until she took a drama class when she was 12 and realised that her dreams lay elsewhere.
‘I think my dad thought I was going to be in the women’s league for ice hockey, but I fell in love with drama, and I asked my mom if I could get involved with it,’ she said.
Yeah, about her dad…
Billionaire investor Nelson Peltz is worth £1.3 billion, comfortably dwarfing David and Victoria’s £370m fortune. He has two jets, while the Beckhams have none.
He is a self-made man with a fearsome reputation as a tough-minded corporate raider.
…Peltz is a long-term supporter of Donald Trump — they have been neighbours for decades in Florida. He recently held a £470,000-per-couple fundraiser for Trump.
Peltz said earlier this year: ‘His policies, to me, are the right policies for America. We have exported tens of millions of jobs — of manufacturing jobs over the last 40, 50 years, pick whatever time frame you want.
That should make for some interesting family gatherings.
Brooklyn and Nicola have been dating for roughly nine months. I suppose that feels like a long time when you’re in your early 20s.
The couple often make proclamations of their love on social media and have shared several romantic snaps during their time in lockdown.
The pair have been isolating together in New York with actress Nicola having moved in with the celebrity offspring in March following just five months of dating.
A recent proclamation of love on social media takes the form of an engagement announcement on Brooklyn’s Instagram account:
Victoria and David Beckham are apparently very happy about the upcoming wedding – or rather weddings.
They are said to be planning to splurge up to £4 million on two weddings next summer, one on each side of the Atlantic.
Brooklyn’s little sister, Harper, nine, will reportedly be ‘chief bridesmaid’, with brothers Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, acting as his ‘ushers’.
A source said: ‘David and Victoria are thrilled. They feel he has finally met a girl who is not after him for fame or money. It’s too early to set a date, but they’re aiming for the end of next summer or early autumn.’
We have no idea where this pandemic is headed, so it’s not surprising that they’re holding off on plans.
