David Beckham watches son in mini marathon before 40th birthday bash

Former soccer star David Beckham spent the weekend watching his son, Romeo compete in London’s mini marathon before he and a group of family and friends head for a five star resort in Morocco, The Daily Mail reports. Beckham will turn 40 on Saturday and has invited a group of celebrity friends and his closest family to Morocco to celebrate the birthday milestone at a luxurious resort for a weekend of partying and honoring the former LA Galaxy superstar.

David is not following the example set by wife Victoria who has already celebrated her 40th birthday. Victoria reportedly spent a fun filled family vacation with the Beckham clan at the Grand Canyon before hosting a single party for celebrity friends when the family returned to the British capital. David’s 40th birthday looks set to be a star studded affair with Tom Cruise and Gordon Ramsey expected to join the family at an opulent Moroccan resort. Other guests will include Beckham’s long time friend Dave Gardner and girlfriend Liv Tyler along with fellow friend Susan McGalla and former Manchester United player and soccer pundit Gary Neville.
