10 Reasons Why We’re Obsessed With Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s Engagement

Free for registered users.

It seems like yesterday the world was gossiping about how beautiful soccer star David Beckham and singer slash fashion designer Victoria Beckham’s children would be. Flashforward twenty-one-years, their eldest son and model Brooklyn is all grown up and engaged to actress Nicola Peltz. The couple began dating about 10 months ago but did not go public about their relationship in January 2020.

Without a further a-(or should we say “I”)-do, here are 10 things we are loving about their aesthetically-pleasing engagement announcement via Instagram.

1. The Corresponding Captions Exude Love

It’s all about the wording! The newly engaged couple both wrote short, but sweet captions to their corresponding Instagram posts announcing their upcoming marriage. Brooklyn wrote, “I promise to be the best husband and the best day one day.” Nicola posted the endearing line: “your love is the most precious gift.” No need to binge-watch a rom-com this week, just stalk the couple’s Instagrams and you will be gushing over their relationship as if you were watching 10 Things I Hate About Your or When Harry Met Sally.

2. The Hand-placement Says It All

Speaking of hands! Can we take a moment to talk about how Nicola’s hand on Brooklyn’s cheek and his hand lightly resting on her hip exudes the same, if not more, amount of love as their Instagram captions? Call us romantics, but the couple appears to be caught in a moment of tender love that only suggests a future of happiness.

3. Creds To The Photographer

We really need to give credit, where credit is due. And that means 9-year-old sister Harper Beckham who is responsible for the iconic shot of the couple standing in front of a lush field and blue sky dusted with the perfect amount of clouds. Who is the better photographer: Harper or her brother Brooklyn?

4. That Bling

Nicola tenderly has her hand on Brooklyn’s cheek, an ideal vantage point for the public to see her diamond engagement ring estimated to be worth $150,000 to $200,000. Although it is not confirmed, there is ample evidence that Nicola’s ring is a 4.5 to a 5-carat emerald diamond in a classic thin band. Other celebrities have adorned a similar ring, but the bling is stunning nonetheless.

5. You Heard It Here First: Yellow And Flowy Is In

Now for the most important part... the dress! Nicola sports a yellow dress which flows in the breeze. Her engagement dress is actually designed by her future mother-in-law, Victoria Beckham. The frill detailing is a subtle addition to the simple silhouette. Not to mention, the bright color suits the green atmosphere, and dare we analyze the meaning of “yellow” to signify a bright future? 

6. We Love Supportive In-Laws

Speaking of Victoria! Brooklyn’s mother shared the same image on her own Instagram account wishing the couple “so much love and a lifetime of happiness.” David also showed his support of the couple’s engagement, sharing his congratulations on his own social media account.

7. Black Tie Is Out, Blue Suit Is In!

Back to fashion! Can we talk about how perfect Nicola’s yellow dress goes with Brooklyn’s dark blue clean-cut suit? We can only imagine how stylish the couple will be on their big day.

8. Simple Hair, Simple Look

While the couple’s outfits are far from casual, both are simple in cut and style. The same goes for their hair styling and Nicola’s makeup. Both look naturally happy and beautiful in nature.

9. Location, Location, Location!

Who knows where their wedding ceremony and reception will take place, but the location of their engagement is everything! The field gives Little House on The Prairie vibes and we are not complaining. After all, a large meadow is a perfect place to celebrate your engagement while social distancing.

10. There Is An Extravagant Wedding (Or Two!) Ahead Of The Couple

Rumor has it the couple will officially tie the knot via two separate weddings next year, which means double the photos to obsess over like this one.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
