A famously devoted father to his brood of four, David Beckham made a special fuss of birthday boy Romeo as he celebrated turning 10 by joining his father on the pitch in California.
Wearing an LA Galaxy kit to match his dad's, the growing resemblance between Romeo and his famous father was clear to see.
The smiling youngster waved to the crowds as he strode the pitch hand in hand with proud papa David, watched from the stands by brothers Brooklyn and Cruz.

Romeo's big brother Brooklyn and younger brother Cruz were with some pals in a special box in the stands, where Gordon Ramsay's wife Tana was keeping an eye on the youngsters.
The Ramsays are close family friends of the Beckhams, and Tana had brought her own daughter along to see Romeo take to the pitch ahead of the LA Galaxy match against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
An unlikely football fan was also spotted in the stands alongside the Beckham and Ramsay clans; Guns 'n' Roses rocker Slash.
Mum Victoria and baby sister Harper Seven had apparently decided to leave the boys to their manly bonding over the football game, as they were nowhere in sight.
David was later seen limping off the field after injuring his ankle during the match.
