It was very nearly a case of mistaken identity when Romeo Beckham shared snaps from his magazine cover debut for L’Uomo Vogue’s February 2021 issue with his near 3 million followers on Instagram.

In pics from the arty shoot by photography duo Mert & Marcus, the 18-year-old is seen flexing his modelling muscle in a variety of ab-baring looks including a bright blue crop top.

But it was Romeo’s undeniably strong resemblance to his famous mum, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, that forced his fans to stop (right now) and do a double-take.

“Omg he looks like his mum so much,” one remarked in the comments of one of Romeo’s posts.

“You’re the image of your mum,” another wrote.

Others thought Romeo, the second eldest of the Beckham brood, was the spit of his football icon father, David, 45.

“You look exactly like your dad here!!” one exclaimed.

Another fan took a more diplomatic approach, comparing the teen with both David and Victoria, 46.

“My goodness you are bits and pieces of the best parts of your parents,” they wrote.

It’s not the first time Romeo has been likened to either one of his parents. Back in September 2020, he shared a sweet snap of himself and his younger sister, Harper, which prompted comparisons to Posh Spice, as Victoria was known in her pop group days.

“You are the spitting image of your mum. Amazing,” one of his fans gushed.
