Parents have been showing their support for David and Victoria’s decision to let their 11-year-old son Cruz release a Christmas single to raise money for charity.
Cruz Beckham, 11, has followed in his Spice Girl mum’s famous footsteps and released a debut single on Wednesday morning on Capital radio.
The new release is called If Every Day Was Christmas and features festive lines such as, ‘If everyday was Christmas and I can’t be with you, underneath the mistletoe, kiss you when nobody knows.’
The song, which is sung by the second youngest Beckham, will raise money for charity with all proceeds from its sale going to Global’s Make Some Noise.
It’s already tipped to be a huge success, with many predicting it will go straight to number one.
However, amidst Cruz’s success, there has been backlash concerning David and Victoria’s decision to let their child become a pop star at the age of 11, with some questioning their parenting.
Piers Morgan was been the first to question the famous couple’s motives, calling Victoria and David, ‘fame hungry parents’. In a Twitter rant on the day of the single’s release, Piers voiced his concerns that Cruz was too young to be a pop star and criticised the Beckham family’s parenting skills.
In one tweet he said, ‘The Beckhams pimping out their 11yr-old son Cruz into the Christmas single pop market is a new low even by their standards.’
Whilst in another he referenced the Beckhams ‘exploiting’ their children in a reply that read, ‘Brand Morgan does very well without exploiting its children…’.
But it seems that parents and the public couldn’t disagree more, with floods of support being posted to the Beckham family’s various social media accounts.
Victoria posted an image to Instagram of her son’s single cover and received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
With a caption that read, ‘Proud! @cruzbeckham’s new single #IfEveryDayWasChristmas helping children in the UK with all proceeds going to @globals_make_some_noise’, the post showed Cruz cheekily posing with a skateboard covering half of his face and Christmas illustrations overlaying the picture.
Social media users were keen to congratulate Victoria with comments such as, ‘You are a happy mom all you kids so many talents 👍🏼❤️️’ and ‘Really like it very catchy tune, well done young man you should be very proud of yourself xx ‘
