David Beckham is really proud of Brooklyn, who he has praised for being a hard worker in a sweet post he has shared on social media.

The former Manchester United footballer, who has been helping his 18-year-old son move to New York, shared a snap that shows the father and son pulling silly faces while walking about in the city.

Exciting times and hard work coming for this little man ... Proud of you bust ❤️ @brooklynbeckham @victoriabeckham

For the outing, David sports a white t-shirt and black cap, which he paired with dark shades, while Brooklyn is in a black t-shirt and throwing up the peace sign.

Brooklyn is said to be attending Parsons School of Design in Greenwich Village for a photography course.

"Exciting times and hard work coming for this little man ... Proud of you bust ❤️ @brooklynbeckham @victoriabeckham," the father of four children wrote alongside the image which he shared with his 39 million fans on Instagram.

Fans have been flooding the post with sweet messages, with many sharing their good wishes.

"All the best of luck to him," a fan commented.

Another added, "My niece has just moved there to fashion school. Maybe you can become friends?"

"I know how you feel. My one and only is now 23 and still away at school. When she first flew the proverbial 'coop,' to attend college at age 17, I didn't think I'd be able to cope. But, of course, in this digital age... it eventually gets easier. ~HUGS~," a third said.

Victoria Beckham previously shared an image, which shows the fashion designer and her son with tears in their eyes.

"We are all so proud of you Brooklyn. Amazing A level results and off to college. We love you so much and will miss you. #yesiamcrying #emotional x," she wrote in the caption.
