Beckhams buy 25,000 earrings for Brookyn
13:30 04 March 2005
David and Victoria Beckham have splashed out on a 25,000 pair of diamond earrings for son Brooklyn's sixth birthday today (04.03.05).
The England football captain - who became a father for the third time last month after Victoria gave birth to son Cruz - had the earrings, which are identical to the ones he wears, specially commissioned by top New York jeweller Jacob the Jeweller.
It is believed the couple, who have one other son Romeo, wanted to give Brooklyn something extra special this year to make up for a difficult past twelve months in which the pair were allegedly on the verge of splitting in the wake of the Rebecca Loos scandal.
A source close to the couple said: "Brooklyn adores his father and always wants everything his dad has got. David and Victoria wanted to give him a real special treat for his birthday. It has been a difficult year for the whole family."
David and Victoria are holding a birthday party for Brooklyn at their Spanish villa, in Madrid, this afternoon but it is believed the bash will be fairly low key.
Among the guests invited to the party include Brooklyn's godmother Liz Hurley, David's Real Madrid teammates Michael Owen and Zinedine Zidane, who are bringing their own children, and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton.
