With his toothy grin and twinkly eyes, Romeo Beckham is a chip off his old dad's block. And now he's following in his famous father's footsteps - but not as a footballer. For the 10-year-old has appeared in his first-ever professional modelling shoot.

Romeo has been unveiled as the newest star of Burberry's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign, making his modelling debut alongside Edie Campbell and Cara Delevingne.

Given that Romeo's mum and dad Victoria and David are two of the most high profile fashion icons around, it's hardly surprising – even if some critics say that at just 10 years old, Romeo shouldn't be in the limelight quite as much as he is.

Not that that will bother Romeo. As he posed with an umbrella wearing a smaller version of the brand's beige trenchcoat in photos by the renowned photographer Mario Testino, the young Beckham was said to have 'stolen the show'.

However, Margaret Morrissey from Parents Outloud said: "Children should be kept out of the limelight, whether they are two or ten."
