Brooklyn, who has been studying photography at the Parsons School of Design in New York, flew out to London to join his family in a restaurant in England.
In the video shared by David (and likely taken by his wife, Victoria) on Instagram, Brooklyn sneaks up on his dad and gives him a big hug from behind.
David gets teary-eyed, repeatedly asking, “What are you doing here?” The former soccer player then kisses his son on the cheek.
On Wednesday morning, Victoria shared a sweet family photo on Instagram to kick off David’s birthday wishes.
“Happy birthday to the best daddy!! X we all love u so much!!! So many kisses from us all xxxx we miss u @brooklynbeckham X,” she captioned the photo of Beckham surrounded by their three younger kids Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and Harper, 6.
