Brooklyn Beckham

In March 1999, Victoria and David gave birth to their first child at Portland Hospital in London. It was a baby boy and was named Brooklyn. He weighed 7 pounds and was delivered through emergency cesarean.

The new parents got a lot of congratulatory messages on their first child but also had to face criticism for the choice of the name. 

They disclosed that they conceived the child in Brooklyn, New York, so they named them Brooklyn, which is a unique name.

Brooklyn is said to be reserved and protective of his mother while they are out and about. He is also a huge football fan.

Brooklyn dated Hollywood actress Chloe Grace Moretz for a short time in 2016. He also stated that he is a promising photographer working on a campaign for the luxury company Burberry.

Romeo Beckham

Romeo, now a teenager, has a promising modeling future ahead of him, appearing in many ads for Burberry’s luxury company.

Cruz Beckham

In February 2005, Victoria gave birth to another baby boy. The boy was born in Madrid, Spain. So the couple chose the Spanish name Cruz that means “Cross” for the boy.

Cruz approached the stage during the Spice Girls’ 2009 tour and performed an incredible body-popping breakdance, much to the audience’s pleasure.

Cruz’s love of music appears to have followed him throughout his life. In December 2016, he signed with Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, and released his debut charity single, “If Every Day Was Christmas.”

Victoria Beckham Musical Career

Becoming a member of Spice Girls

In 1994, Victoria got a fortuitous break when she responded to a casting call for enthusiastic and hardworking female artists.

Beckham was picked from among 400 women who applied to join a new all-female pop singing group.

The group was named the Spice Girls, and it had five members: Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and David Beckham.

Each of the five Spice Girls members created their own persona: Brown was dubbed “Scary Spice,” Chisholm “Sporty Spice,” Halliwell “Ginger Spice,” Bunton “Baby Spice,” and Beckham “Posh Spice.”

They launched their first album, Spice, in 1996 and topped the charts with the infectious dance-pop single “Wannabe.”

Their follow-up song, “Say You’ll Be There,” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 list. The record sold over 20 million copies worldwide, making them the best-selling female group of all time.

After their immense success, they released their second album named Spice World in 1997. The album performed well but couldn’t break the record of their debut single.

Their third album, Forever, did not perform well as the previous two albums. So, after releasing three albums, Spice girls went on a hiatus.

Mrs. Beckham, on the other hand, was preparing for her solo debut.

Making a solo debut 

Beckham released her debut solo song, “Out of Your Mind,” on August 14, 2000, collaborating with Dane Bowers and Truesteppers.

Before the single’s release, she had made her public solo debut in a performance for a charity. She performed “Out of Your Mind” in front of a crowd of 100,000 people.

Her next solo song, “Not Such An Innocent Girl,” was released on September 17, 2001.  Despite a massive advertising effort, Beckham’s song debuted at number six. 

Beckham’s self-titled first album, released on October 1, 2001, peaked at number ten in the UK album chart. However, the record reportedly cost £5 million to make and sold only 50,000 copies.

Later, Victoria dropped her final album, ‘A mind of its own’ on February 11, 2002, but it did not perform well as anticipated.

The company then stopped promoting her, and there were rumors that her label would soon drop Victoria.

Unfortunately, the rumor did come true as Victoria was dropped by her label, including her fellow group mates.

However, She claimed that she was never dropped but instead came to a mutual agreement not to continue together.

Signing up with a new label 

After parting her ways with Virgin Records, Beckham signed a £1.5 million contract with Telstar Records and 19 Management the same year.

In 2003, she began work on Open Your Eyes, an electropop-influenced album, and picked “Let Your Head Go” as the first single.

But, Beckham dropped the album as she was not satisfied with the final album. She wanted a more urban sound and collaborated with Damon Dash on the R&B, and hip hop-oriented album Come Together. 

Beckham’s debut single, the double A-side “Let Your Head Go,” was released in the UK on December 29, 2003.

The single peaked at number three in UK charts despite the huge marketing and several TV appearances. 

The album did not perform as expected. Victoria had her next album lined up, but the company postponed it as it was struggling financially.

Soon the company went bankrupt in April 2004, ending Victoria’s solo music career.
