The 17-year-old took to Instagram to post an adorable snap of him holding a newborn baby at the New Life Home Trust clinic in Kenya - who he then revealed had been sweetly named after him.

Brooklyn and his mother Victoria, 42, have jetted from London to Kenya to visit the New Life Home Trust and Beyond Zero clinics, in order to learn more about the therapies and treatments available for children and parents with HIV.

The designer has also been taking to her social media to promote the trip - posting a gorgeous black and white snap of her gazing lovingly at a suffering child, before adding another of her measuring a patient's heartbeat.

The trip comes as part of Victoria's role as the International Goodwill Ambassador for the charity, which she has held since 2014. 

She said at the time of appointment: 'This is the beginning of an important journey for me. As a woman and a mother I have a responsibility to support other women.'

The former Spice Girl continues: 'I am proud and honoured to be working with UNAIDS in this new role to help to raise resources and awareness to support and empower women and children affected by HIV.' 

While Victoria is happy to help and care for children in struggling countries, she recently admitted that she is 'done' with having kids of her own.

When asked if she planned to add to their family by Sunday Times Style Magazine, she admitted: 'No! I am done. People have been obsessed with it - she's getting divorced, she's pregnant, she's getting divorced, she's pregnant - ever since I met David.' 

Victoria is also mother to sons Romeo, 13, and Cruz, 11, and daughter Harper, 5, who did not join them on the trip.

Speaking further about her four children Victoria revealed she found being a parent became harder the older they get.

She explained: 'The most important thing is to make sure that each child gets the individual attention that they need... I do feel that I'm being pulled in four different directions with the children.'
