We all know children of celebrities get certain perks in their lives. But when your parents are friends with Elton John, you get to have the iconic rocker sing happy birthday to you.
David and Victoria Beckham’s son, Romeo, is turning 15 on Sept. 1 and the family took a little trip to the French Riviera for a celebration. Along for the fun was Elton John and his husband David Furnish, who have been friends of the family for years.
David posted a photo of the two pals on Instagram as they hung out on a boat together. “Uncle Elton…. We have known each other now for 25 years .. Fun times with each other 😍 @eltonjohn@davidfurnish.”
The fun didn’t stop there. Elton and David, who are godparents to Romeo, joined the family for a dinner celebration. Victoria took to Instagram to post a video of the group singing “Happy Birthday” to her son.
“Early birthday celebrations! X From the best godparents @eltonjohn @davidfurnish x kisses x,” she wrote.
As a large chocolate cake with sparklers arrives at the table, you can hear the crowd singing happy birthday, with Elton’s voice clearly standing out. Now that’s some perk.
Happy Birthday Romeo!
