Despite breaking records to become the fastest growing Instagram account EVER, wracking up a whopping 1 million followers in just one day, David Beckham claims he's actually not the most popular member of the Beckham clan.

In fact, David admits that it's his son Brooklyn, just 16, who's the real star of the family when it comes to fans. Apparently the teens just can't get enough of Brooklyn!

Speaking to Manchester-based radio station Key 103, the footie star said its son who gets the most attention when they're out and about:“We normally get people now coming up and saying, 'would you mind taking a picture with me?', and they’re actually talking to Brooklyn rather than myself. And I'm the one that takes the picture!”

We're not too surprised about Brooklyn's new found popularity, as the teenager is beginning to make a bit of name for himself. But rather than take after David, it seems he's following in mum Victoria's footsteps, creating waves in the fashion industry.

Reports surfaced this summer that Brook had been signed to a top modelling agency after gracing the cover of edgy men's fashion magazines Man About Town as well as sitting FROW (that's front row for us non-fashionistas) alongside fashion queen bee Anna Wintour. Oh, plus he hangs out with Niall Horan of One Direction fame and has been romantically linked to actress Chloe Moretz. All whilst sitting his A-Levels...

Don't worry David, whilst Brooklyn might be the rising star in the family, you'll always have a soft spot in our hearts.
