With 4.4 million followers and hundreds of thousands of likes on each of his artsy, usually Inkwell-filtered snapshots, Brooklyn Beckham has become an Instagram star in his own right. But fame and social media following aside, he’s still just a teenager with strict parents just like every other 16-year-old.

David Beckham, who broke records earlier this summer when he finally joined the photo-sharing platform, revealed that he and wife Victoria have rules for their son’s online activity and monitor and approve everything he posts. “Our 16-year-old son, Brooklyn, he’s got like 4 million Instagram followers,” David Beckham told ABC News. “We control everything that he posts, everything that he does, and it’s the same with our other kids.” He also admitted that Victoria is “the strict one in the house”—so perhaps dad is the parent Brooklyn goes to for sign-off any shirtless pics.
