Louise Redknapp's youngest son Beau is clearly taking after his father Jamie Redknapp! The eight-year-old has signed up to join Chelsea F.C's soccer school. Taking to her Instagram page on Saturday, former pop star Louise proudly shared a picture of her little boy as she shared the exciting news. "Super proud of my little man today #chelsea #signing," she captioned the snap alongside a heart-shaped emoji. Fans were quick to congratulate the youngster, with one writing: "Well done Beau what a great achievement @louiseredknapp. Keep up the hard work." In reference to his father Jamie and Jamie's cousin Frank Lampard's old club, one fan remarked: "Noo he needs to be a red!! But well done." [sic]
Louise, 42, and professional footballer Jamie, 43, married in 1998 and have since welcomed two sons together - little Beau and 12-year-old Charley. Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, the mother-of-two recently revealed her children were definitely following in their dad's footsteps - particularly Beau. "I think secretly they'd both like to do a little bit more performance-led things, but because they're boys and sport is such a huge part of [Jamie's and my] life I think they just naturally go down that route," she confessed. "[Beau] is a very keen footballer and [Charley's] a really good rugby player, actually."
The star added: "It's so nice for him because it takes some of the pressure off. It's hard for the boys - people want them to be amazing footballers but just because their dad does something doesn't mean they want to do the same. Although right now the young one's definitely taking after his dad." Earlier this year, Louise took to her Instagram page to reveal her delight over her Beau's latest achievement, which saw him become a mascot for Chelsea F.C.. "So proud of my boy yesterday," she captioned the image at the time, alongside the hashtags, #chelseamascot and #handsome.
