Brooklyn Beckham is officially heading off to college! While it's obviously a very exciting time for the 18-year-old, naturally his family is very sad that he's leaving. Today, his mom, Victoria Beckham, took to Instagram to wish her oldest son farewell in an emotional post.

In the photo, she and Brooklyn sit in an oversize chair and while he is smiling, it's clear that Victoria has been crying. "We are all so proud of you Brooklyn. Amazing A level results and off to college. We love you so much and will miss you. #yesiamcrying #emotional x," she wrote alongside the 'gram.

While any parent would be sad that their child is beginning a new chapter in their life, it's even tougher for the Beckhams since the London-based family will be far from Brooklyn, who is attending an undisclosed university in New York.

Earlier in the week, his dad, David Beckham, also posted a cute photo of just him and Brooklyn from their visit to the Ice Cream Museum in Los Angeles. "Still not too old for a little ice cream with Dad," he wrote.
