Romeo Beckham Looks Just Like Mom Victoria in His First Cover Shoot

Victoria Beckham's resemblance to her 18-year-old son is more apparent than ever.

Victoria and David Beckham's children are growing up fast, and their second oldest just reached a big milestone in his career—at only 18 years old. Romeo Beckham landed his first magazine cover, L'Uomo Vogue, and his parents couldn't be more proud. Both Victoria and David posted about the news on their Instagram accounts. But, there's something else that stands out about the major photo shoot: Romeo looks a lot like his mom.

Read on to see Romeo's resemblance to Victoria and to find out what the proud parents had to say about their son. And for another celeb-kid-turned-model, see how much Elizabeth Hurley's Model Son Looks Exactly Like Her

You can really see the mother-son likeness.

Romeo is on the cover of L'Uomo Vogue, which is men's Italian Vogue. On his Instagram account, he shared the cover, along with several other photos from inside the magazine, including one where he wears pink zebra striped pants and another where he leans up against a car in leather shorts.

But it's the cover in which Romeo looks the most like Victoria. He might have bleached blonde hair, but you can still see that he looks just like his mom. Their face shape and eyes are very similar, and in case you forgot, she once had short bleached blonde hair, too.

Sharing the cover on her own Instagram account, Victoria wrote, "Proud of you @RomeoBeckham." David wrote on his account, "So proud of you @romeobeckham What an incredible first cover for @luomovogue."

Romeo's siblings spoke out, too. Twenty-one-year-old Brooklyn, who also models, wrote on his Instagram Story, "Proud of you lil bro." Cruz, 15, added, "Proud of you bro @romeobeckham." Brooklyn's fiancée, actor Nicola Peltz, was also happy for Romeo. She wrote on Instagram, "Congratulations @RomeoBeckham These are beyond!"

In addition to the three boys, Victoria and Beckham also have a nine-year-old daughter named Harper Seven.

Romeo's first modeling gig was when he was only 10.

This might be Romeo's first magazine cover, but he started modeling long ago. In 2012, when he was only 10 years old, he modeled in a campaign for Burberry. Three years before that, Victoria already knew her son was into fashion. "We had dinner last night and Romeo wore a suit with a little shirt and tie," she said in a 2009 interview with Harper's Bazaar (via Yahoo!). "That's what he would wear every single day, he's so into fashion."

Romeo hasn't done much modeling in the time since, but the cover of L'Uomo Vogue might be the start of a real career on the catwalk.
