David Beckham on son Cruz's singing talent: 'We didn't realise how good his voice is!'

Cruz Beckham blew us all away when dad David shared a clip of him singing on Instagram, and the retired footballer has admitted even he was shocked by his youngest son's talent. Cruz, 11, gave an amazing rendition of Anna Kendrick's Cups last month – and many have since tipped him to become the next Justin Bieber!

David, 41, captioned the video of 11-year-old Cruz: "Look at my little man go. Ridiculously cute and the enjoyment in his face while doing it just makes us smile."

Now former Manchester United midfielder David has opened up about his boy's singing, insisting that, should he want to, Cruz could have a successful singing career, just like his mum – and former Spice Girl – Victoria.

Speaking to MTV, David explained: "We didn't realise what a great voice he had, actually. He loves to sing so we knew he had a pretty good voice but when he did the Cups thing, that was kind of amazing. He's definitely got a little bit of talent there."

But does David think Cruz become the next big thing in pop? "We'll see!" he said. "If he wants to be."

Since conquering the football world, David has tried his hand at modelling, men's grooming products and even documentary-making – but he won't be joining Cruz for a duet anytime soon.

He added: "He told me to have a go while I was sat next to him and it's really not easy."

David and Victoria's other sons Brooklyn, 17, and 13-year-old Romeo are already excelling in their chosen careers. Brooklyn has become a successful photographer, shooting for the likes of Burberry, while Romeo prefers life in front of the camera and has fronted big campaigns for the fashion house.

And daughter Harper, four, is undoubtedly going to follow in fashion designer Victoria's footsteps, although she's as partial to a kick about as her famous dad!
