Like father, like son! Pop prince Cruz Beckham, 11, dons a bushy moustache just like his dad's... after David defends 'pushy parents' accusations
He's a lot busier than your average youngster since launching his pop career.
But 11-year-old Cruz Beckham looked a lot more mature already on Wednesday, as he posted a funny Instagram photo with his footballer dad David Beckham with a new, bushy black moustache.
Sitting by the poolside, the aspiring singing sensation gave his father a run for his money with his overnight facial hair.

Manly mustache: 11-year-old Cruz Beckham was in light spirits as he posted a funny Instagram photo with his footballer dad David Beckham on Wednesday
So sweet! Cruz followed the humorous snap with a more sentimental one, enjoying a nice ride with David
The comical post was simple and sweet, with the caption saying: 'Do you like my mustache? (sic) @davidbeckham'
Cruz followed the humorous snap with a more sentimental one, enjoying a nice ride with David.
In the sweet post, the singer said: 'Riding with my dad today in the park (sic)'
Cruz joined social media two weeks ago and amassed almost 30,000 followers within one hour.
The move fuelled speculation that he was due to launch his pop career, a claim that proved to be true this week when the school child found himself at the centre of a media storm for his decision to release a Christmas song.

But it was his famous parents who were heavily criticised for introducing their youngest son to Justin Bieber's manager to begin his pop career at just 11.
David has since insisted that it was Cruz himself who came up with the idea of releasing the festive single - If Every Day Was Christmas - for charity this year.
Speaking to Good Morning America on Monday, the father-of-four responded to claims that he and wife Victoria were acting like 'pushy parents'.
Speaking out: David spoke out about his son Cruz's pop debut for the first time on Tuesday, saying that it was his son's decision to release a Christmas single and not his own, following accusations that he and wife Victoria had acted as 'pushy parents'
He explained: 'And Cruz came to us and said "How about I do a Christmas song for charity? And all the proceeds go to charity." There’s nothing more to this than that at the moment.
'He's 11 years old, he's still at school, he’s concentrating at school that’s the most important thing but he wanted to give back and he’s done this amazing little Christmas song that’s got a lot of attention.
'And you know we are very proud of it. He came to us with the idea. It's kind of cool but he's having fun.'
Cruz, who is signed with Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun, is said to have agreed a one and done type of deal, according to his father.
The proud dad said: 'The amazing thing about this, we only realised Cruz has a cute little voice about nine months ago.
'Scooter has been a family friend for a while, so he said to bring him in [to the studio], see if he enjoys it.'
His words came after television personality Piers Morgan called Cruz's early pop breakthrough 'sickening' on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain, adding that Cruz 'should be at school'.
Clear to state that he wasn't criticising Cruz himself, Piers said: 'It's not his fault. He's 11. But how did he manage to release this? It's sickening.'

Standing by his son: 'He's 11-years-old, he's still at school, he’s concentrating at school that’s the most important thing but he wanted to give back and he’s done this amazing little Christmas song that’s got a lot of attention,' he explained
Cruz released his first single, which is set to raise money for Global's Make Some Noise campaign, earlier this week.
David was on the show to talk about his own charitable work with children's foundation UNICEF.
He continued: 'For us, we always want in our children - we always hope - they're listening to us or pay attention to us as parents, so we do a lot of work for charity for obviously UNICEF and my wife does for the UN.'
