It was football superstar David Beckham’s 43rd birthday on Wednesday and his whole family got together to celebrate his big milestone showering him with gifts.

But nothing could have prepared him for the biggest gift of the day when his eldest son Brooklyn, who has been studying in New York, made a surprise appearance at the restaurant where David was having his birthday dinner.

“David,” Victoria says to direct the birthday boy’s attention to the front door.

“What are you doing here?” David is heard saying in an Instagram video which wife Victoria posted of the special moment.

“Happy Birthday,” Brooklyn then says while a teary-eyed David grabs him to give him a big hug.

“I didn’t know Brooklyn was coming,” six-year-old Harper is heard saying in the background.
