After they bitch and moan about press intrusion you'd think they'd make more of an effort to protect their kids.

Really do we have to pretend this boy got this contract on looks alone? His teeth are too big and gappy for him to be a child model. Shame that some ordinary kid has not got this chance.

Oh, it's definitely who you know that counts in this world.

But this is a 'show biz' family, so not surprising really if their kids go down the fame route. Can't really see them studying to become a social worker, or a nurse etc.

Well its no more ridiculous than Pippa Middleton being hired as a 'Royal Correspondent' for some US media outlet.

At least the kid looks cute!

Sorry but i'm gonna be cruel. Very cruel. Be prepared.

With those teeth, that kid wouldn't be modelling and he wouldn't be encouraged to smile like that.

it's the name that will get those four kids where they are, not anything else.

Could be a whole new thread - people in totally inappropriate jobs because of who they know. Pippa & little Beckham first examples.

I think that is cruel, especially as someone who suffered throughout their childhood from bullying caused by, among other things, having wonky teeth. But let's not forget that imperfections are fashionable in modelling these days and I guess that even counts for children- but maybe not necessarily babies. So on that side of things it is nice to see a young lad who isn't model-perfect being chosen for a high profile campaign.

HOWEVER! This is the Beckhams we're talking about here so obviously there's another angle to this, which is pure and simple nepotism. I have a feeling that once the football dries up for Derek- which it pretty much has- then the whole brand- er, sorry, family, are styling themselves towards fashion world domination.

That said I think the two elder boys are very handsome and could potentially do well, but I don't for one minute believe this is something they would ever be remotely interested in without Victoria's input and I feel this has probably been the cherry on the icing of her year; now she even literally 'breeds' style. And there's probably a helluva lot more of this to come too.

Jerry Hall & Mick Jagger's daughter Georgia May Jagger. Pretty girl but there would have been a slim chance of her getting modelling work with those teeth if it wasn't for her parents being who they are.

Getting jobs just because of who you know or who you are related to isn't only confined to the entertainment business though. Look in any Council offices and you'll find dozens of people working there 'because their mum, dad, auntie, etc' got them in.

Its the same the world over I'm afraid.

But Romeo is a 10 year old child, it's enough that his parents are famous, he's not having a proper childhood modelling for a very famous company like Burberry.

Oh come off it! One or two days modelling for this campaign is hardly going to interfere with his childhood. Unless he's embarking on a modelling career, this is not even an issue.

Cute kid however I don't think his parents should have let him do this. It opens the floodgates to people being nasty about a ten year old. A non famous kid would not get the same ridicule. But from a business point of view - genius - loads of free publicity for Burberry and brand Beckham.

He's a lovely looking kid but I'm sure his surname helped land the job.

It would be naive to assume these children are going to live quiet reclusive lives. The Beckhams are a comodity and with clever marketing the kids will expand the Beckham Dynasty. Such is life. They were never ever going to have a "normal" life. They are privilleged very rich kids mixing with similar.

Every celebrity kid seems to be a model nowdays. Even Kelly Osbourne has been a model and she's very unattractive
