Victoria Beckham has bought her son Brooklyn an unusual present for his sixth birthday - a pair of diamond earrings worth a staggering $47,500 (GBP25,000).

The former SPICE GIRL purchased the unusual gift because they match his soccer star father, David Beckham's $142,500 (GBP75,000) pair made for him by New York jeweller JACOB.

A source explains, "Brooklyn adores his father and always wants everything his dad has got.

"David and Victoria wanted to get him something extra special for his birthday.

"It has been a pretty tough year for the whole family."
