The star has dated a number of famous names, including his longest relationship with American actress, Chloe Grace Moretz in 2014. The two dated for over two years and unfortunately ended things in 2018, however, it appears as if Brooklyn is one to bounce back fast.
Although Brooklyn Beckham may find himself being quite the momma’s boy, things took a turn when he was reportedly said to be dating model Phoebe Terrance. The two were spotted out and about quite a few times, which came across as striking purely because Phoebe looks VERY much like Beckham’s mom, Victoria.
He dated French model-singer Sonia Ben Ammar, Canadian model Lexi Wood, and English model Hana Cross in 2019. After breaking up and reconciling several times, Moretz confirmed that she and Beckham had broken up for good in 2018.
In March 2020, he pronounced his love for Nicola Peltz, after confirming their relationship on Instagram in January 2020, Beckham announced his engagement to American actress Nicola Peltz on 11 July 2020. The couple was married on 9 April 2022.

Brooklyn Beckham is a married man. The eldest son of Victoria and David Beckham wedded heiress Nicola Peltz in a lavish ceremony at her family’s estate in Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday, April 9, 2022, the Daily Mail reported.
The pair said “I do” in front of their family and friends, including celebrity guests Serena Williams, Eva Longoria, and The Ramseys.
Other notable names that attended the nuptials are Victoria’s Spice Girl bandmates — Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Horner (née Halliwell) — as well as Rocco Ritchie, Gigi Hadid, Nicole Richie, Elizabeth Hurley, sports agent Dave Gardner, and Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen.
Peltz, 27, was seen wearing a custom Valentino dress which she chose with the help of New York-based celebrity stylist Leslie Fremar.
“Nicola trusts Leslie implicitly and, while her dress is being made by Valentino, Leslie is the person she has turned to help with how she will accessorize and how she will have her hair and makeup,” a source told The Daily Mail earlier this week.
However, the bride confessed to CR Fashion Book in November 2021 that she would be wearing multiple looks, so she is expected to change into other gowns later in the day.
The fancy affair turned into a full-on fête since Snoop Dogg was DJing at the reception.
The rapper, who is pals with David, told The Mirror, “Brooklyn’s wedding is going to be a big affair and my gift to him and his wife-to-be is I will come down and do a set for them on their big day.”
Now that Brooklyn and Peltz have tied the knot, they are likely to reside full time in their $10.5 million Beverly Hills mansion, which they purchased just ahead of their nuptials.
