Victoria and David Beckham's youngest son Cruz turned 16 over the weekend, and he marked the occasion by getting a brand new piercing – just like his dad used to sport!

After sharing a selfie captioned: "It's ma burfday," on his Instagram Stories, Cruz went on to post a close-up picture of his earlobe with what appears to be a mini grey skull earring.

Neither of his famous parents have commented on his earring, but it's likely that they will approve since piercings are popular among the whole family.

During a Q&A segment on her Instagram Stories, one fan asked: "Where do you get your ear piercings done?." The former Spice Girl wrote: "Bridgett from @miamitatooco and @lizziemandler are amazing! The helix, forward helix and conch piercings are new this summer."

Meanwhile, both of Cruz's older brothers have had piercings done in the past; Brooklyn being accompanied by his parents during a trip to Claire's in 2014, and three years later, Romeo, then 14, modelled earrings in a snap with his cousin.
