Cruzin' For A Bruisin'

Brooklyn Beckham, the eldest Beckham child, celebrated his 9th birthday in style yesterday afternoon as his mother, Vicki B., took him and his brothers (Romeo and Cruz, in a cute little Batman Beyond costume) to Pink Taco restaurant, then to Cold Stone Creamery for dessert, then to the movies to see The Spiderwick Chronicles in the Century City Mall to celebrate with some of her famous friends. Here are a few really cute pics (well, of Cruz, at least) of the entire Beckham family (sans hottie daddy David Beckham, who is still in Asia with the LA Galaxy) making their way thru the outdoor mall yesterday:

His famous father was out of town, but little Brooklyn Beckham still packed in plenty of star-power for his ninth birthday party. David and Victoria Beckham's oldest son celebrated his big day Tuesday at Century City Mall's Pink Taco restaurant with his mom, brothers and 25 friends – not to mention Heidi Klum and Eva Longoria Parker. And apparently little brother Cruz, 3 (who attended the party in a Batman costume), isn't the only Beckham with an interest in break dancing. After catching a movie at the mall, Brooklyn and his pals were entertained by a team of dancers busting hip-hop moves. As his crew – including brothers Cruz and Romeo, 5 – gathered around, Brooklyn blew out the candles on a Cold Stone Creamery ice-cream cake (decorated to match the break-dancing theme), while his mom snapped photos on her digital camera. Klum's three-year-old daughter, Leni, was the first partygoer to poop out – she was toted out by her supermodel mom at 8 p.m. With bedtime looming, the entire celebration wound down around 8:30.

Awww ... what is it about little Cruz Beckham that he has to constantly steal the show? The kid has made a career of upstaging his older brothers ... here it is, Brooklyn's birthday and little Cruz is the one all dolled up in costume getting all the attention. I understand that as folks started singing Happy Birthday to Brooklyn, little Cruz jumped up on the table and started breakdancing in order to steal his older brother's thunder away from him ;) That little kid is trubs, I just know it ... I'm sure it won't be long until his older brothers get wise to the kid's machinations and they start teaching him a lesson. In any regard, Happy Birthday goes out to Brooklyn for almost turning double-digits ... it sounds like he had a really fun birthday (that is, when his little ham of a brother wasn't hogging all of the attention) at one of my fave places, the Century City Mall.
