David Beckham has called his son Brooklyn "the perfect gentleman" in a touching post.

David has further proved he's a doting dad with a sweet snap and heartfelt message to his eldest son. The former pro footballer uploaded a snap of himself planting a kiss on Brooklyn's head as the pair enjoyed a hike in Los Angeles.

He wrote: "Something tells me I love this not so little man so much ...... Growing up fast into a perfect gentleman and hiking buddy.... I love you big boy."

Aww, super cute, right?

Brooklyn also posted the same snap, and captioned it: "Like father like son", which suggests David has somehow managed the impossible - he's publicly gushed about his 16-year-old son without verging into the embarrassing dad territory.

Now that's pretty impressive! But the fact he's the one and only David Beckham probably helps him a bit, though...

Not only is David a softie when it comes to his kids, he's also always got their backs. When an online article claimed his four-year-old daughter Harper was too old to be using a dummy, David stood up for himself and his family, saying: "Why do people feel they have the right to criticise a parent about their own children without having any facts??

"Everybody who has children knows that when they aren't feeling well or have a fever you do what comforts them best and most of the time it's a pacifier so those who criticise think twice about what you say about other people's children because actually you have no right to criticise me as a parent."
