David Beckham Leaves The Most Dad-ish Response Under His Teenage Son's Instagram Photo

Dad being, well... dad.

A Plus is reposting some of our favorite celebrity dad stories in honor of Chicken Soup for the Soul's Project Dad. Watch Donnell Rawlings, Daniel Cosgrove, and DJ Skribble in the premiere on Discovery Life Tuesday at 7 p.m. Eastern.

When 40-year-old soccer player David Beckham was chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive earlier this month, his 16-year-old son Brooklyn dropped a pretty sassy remark.

"My oldest son, Brooklyn, was the one who was like, 'Are you sure it's not me that's meant to be there today?'" Beckham toldPeople magazine.

This is not the first time Brooklyn lightheartedly mocked his father. After all, don't all teens do that anyway?

Just take a look at some of Brooklyn's Instagram snaps below:


"Dad's not happy about me being cooler than him."

"In your dreams, dad."

To be frank, we've been quite enjoying this adorable father-son competition.

But when Brooklyn Instagrammed a photo of himself a couple of days ago, Beckham — being a dad — saw a perfect opportunity to get his fatherly revenge.

"Rocking the old school Ralph Lauren," Brooklyn's caption reads.

"That's my jumper," Beckham comments under the photo.

Snap. Good one, David.

As good as this video from 8 months ago:
