The Beckhams even do birthdays better.

Happy birthday, Becks! Retired footballer David Beckham has turned 42 and took to Instagram to share his special day, posting a gorgeous black and white snapshot of him with his four kids, Brooklyn (18), Romeo (14), Cruz (12) and Harper (5), and surrounded by prezzies.

But our favourite congratulations came from his stunning wife, fashion designer Victoria Beckham who shared a super cute photo of the hunky footballer, smiling coyly for the camera in front of a birthday cake. She captioned it simply, "Happy birthday, we all love you so much."
