The kids are keeping him on his toes.
David Beckham was roasted on social media after eagle-eyed fans noticed he was standing on his tippy-toes in his family’s 2021 Christmas photo.
The former soccer player, 46, was seen in an Instagram post on Sunday standing with his wife, Victoria Beckham, and their four children, Brooklyn, 22, Romeo, 19, Cruz, 16, and Harper, 10, as they gathered in front of their tree.
“Merry Christmas 🎅🏼,” he captioned the picture in which he stood between Victoria, 47, and Romeo.
All three of the couple’s sons mirrored their dad in black suits, while the former Spice Girl wore a green gown and Harper looked sweet in a navy dress and a cream cardigan.
At a first glance, David and Romeo seemed to be the same height, but fans were quick to point out that the father of four was perched on his toes to level his height with his teenage son.
“Love the family photo, AND the tip toes🤣 cheers!🥂🍾🎄💚,” one person commented on the post.
“David on his tip toes 👀🙈,” a second person wrote, with a third adding, “On tippy toes Papa 😂😂😂😂.”
Victoria posted the same family photo to her own Instagram feed, where several of her followers also poked fun at David’s stance.
“Christmas kisses from the Beckhams! 🎄🎁,” the fashion mogul captioned her post.
“Nice to see you en point David 😍 #tippytoes,” one fan joked.
Romeo’s followers also joined in on the fun, with one person writing, “Hahaha when your dad is spotted on his tip toes to try and be level with you 😂👏🏻 Cheers!! 🥂🍾🎄.”
David is 5-foot-11, and while he may not be taller than his sons, he towers over Victoria, who stands at just 5-foot-4.
And the athlete’s height wasn’t the only thing getting roasted this season: He and Victoria also hilariously razzed each other’s musical talents while celebrating Christmas with their brood.
