Brooklyn Peltz Beckham is the eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham.

On Monday, March 4, the fashion designer took to Instagram with two separate uploads wishing her and husband David Beckham's eldest child a happy birthday, however, fans thought part of her message seemed a bit self-entitled.

In the first post, Victoria shared a sweet video of Brooklyn as a young boy, watching his mom perform with her former girl group, the Spice Girls, at one of their shows.

"How peculiar that this post is aimed at how amazing she is 🤔. Maybe we should say this to all our children when it’s their birthday 😂," one user quipped, as another ridiculed, "weird choice of words on your son’s birthday! 🤔."

"It's about Brooklyn today not you vic...😂," a third hater stated, as a fourth deemed the singer "a tad conceited 🫣."

Fans of Victoria, however, jumped to her defense, informing Posh Spice she is deserving of a little praise.

"I love this perspective, it’s bloody hard to raise a child and we should, as parents, celebrate OUR achievement in getting a child to another birthday. Yes it’s a great for them but taking a moment to celebrate yourself and your partnership with your co-parent is good too," a supporter penned, as a second admirer gushed, "you have raised beautiful, well-rounded children and for that you have every right to be proud ❤ Happy Birthday Brooklyn 🙌."
