David Gandy has spoken out to insist Romeo Beckham has only been made the face of Burberry's Christmas campaign because he is the son of fashion designer Victoria Beckham and retired soccer star David Beckham.
David Gandy insists Romeo Beckham only gets modelling jobs because of his famous parents.
The 34-year-old model spoke out after discovering Romeo, 12 - who is one of retired soccer star David and his fashion designer wife Victoria Beckham's four children - had become the face of Burberry's Christmas 2014 campaign.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: ''Who's Romeo? Oh that's Beckham's son. I think the Beckham name will have helped that one.''
Romeo - who is brother to Brooklyn, 15, Cruz, nine, and three-year-old sister Harper - first modelled for the British fashion house in 2013 and since then they are said to have experienced a huge spike in sales.
Meanwhile, David - who featured in the campaigns for brands including Hugo Boss, Dolce & Gabbana and British high-street store Marks & Spencer - recently reunited with former flame, The Saturdays singer Mollie Sims.
And despite having only been back together a matter of weeks, David has hinted he thinks they will be together for some time, as Mollie has her own drawer at his London home.
Speaking previously about his girlfriend's separate space for her smalls, he said: ''That may be there for a while, so uh...''
Quizzed on whether they had any plans to get married, he added: ''There you go...Even though she steals all my clothes.''
