Nicola Peltz Beckham's family has been left devastated by the sad loss of her grandmother Bunny. The Lola actress' brother Bradley Peltz shared a moving Instagram post on Thursday, revealing Bunny had sadly passed away at the grand age of 95.

Brooklyn Beckham's wife was incredibly close to her grandma Gina (who also went by the nickname Naunni) and even gave her the role of maid of honour at her lavish 2022 wedding.

"Today, we lost my angel on earth. She was not only the happiest but one of my favorite souls I ever came across. She was the light that would brighten your day," Bradley wrote.

"Her heart was so big that you could feel it when she smiled, and in turn make you smile. May her soul rest in peace and in paradise in heaven. I love you Bunny."

Bradley, 34, shared several happy memories from his time spent with Bunny, including an amazing photo of his grandmother holding up a sign that read "Every day I'm hustlin'".

Nicola and Brooklyn's close bond with her grandmother

The Bates Motel actress was forced to miss the Met Gala last week, instead enjoying a "cupcake party" with her grandmother, and revealed in another post that they were "watching all the beautiful MET dresses together".

Nicola first hinted at her grandmother's ill health when she was addressed her absence from mother-in-law Victoria Beckham's star-studded 50th birthday bash, revealing she had spent time with Bunny instead.

Sharing a photo of the Beckhams celebrating on her Instagram Stories, she explained her no-show, writing: "Happy birthday to my beautiful mil @victoriabeckham I'm so sad I'm not there to celebrate you and hug you! Sending all my love from me and my naunni [white love heart] I miss you all so much!"

Brooklyn was also close to Bunny and even whipped up a special celebratory feast to mark her 94th birthday.

In the summer of 2022, Nicola was asked whether David Beckham's eldest son had ever showcased his culinary skills for her grandmother.

"Always! He did for my Naunni's birthday!," she commented on a video of her grandmother trying Brooklyn's impressive pasta dish.

In another video from the celebrations, Brooklyn was seen delivering an impromptu speech to commemorate the moment.

He said: "Happy birthday I love you so much, I am so honoured to be here on your birthday. You are so amazing and you look so gorgeous today, thank you for letting me into your gorgeous family. I hope you enjoy the day."

To which she replied: "You're so beautiful thank you… thank you so much you're a doll!" and the pair shared a hug.
