Romeo Beckham is ready for his close up!

The 10-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham has been unveiled as the adorable new face of Burberry's spring/summer 2013 ad campaign. Outfitted in a mini trench and clutching one of the company's signature plaid umbrellas, the happy-go-lucky kid strikes an animated pose — like he's ready to go "Singin' in the Rain."

A second picture posted on the fashion company's Facebook page is a behind-the-scenes shot of the gap-toothed Romeo at the Mario Testino-helmed photo shoot. In it he's smiling widely — a trait he must have picked up from his soccer star dad, not his designer mom, who is famous for her pout.

It was only a matter of time before Romeo decided get into showbiz. Not only are his world-famous parents largely into fashion and modeling (though his dad poses mostly in his undies), but the middle Beckham son has long been hamming it up at sporting events alongside his brothers — and has a sharp sense of style for an elementary school kid.

"We had dinner last night and Romeo wore a suit with a little shirt and tie," Victoria told Harper's Bazaar in 2009. "That's what he would wear every single day, he's so into fashion."

While his brothers Brooklyn and Cruz would rather hit the beach and play in the sand, Romeo would prefer to be working with his mother on her fashion label. "The other boys are all about going to the beach," Victoria added. "He's not interested." Instead, "He's like, 'I want to go to work with Mummy,' and he sits there going through the collection, feeling the fabrics, giving his opinion. He loves it."

He also loves copying his father's style — well, at least when it comes to body art! In October, Romeo was photographed showing off a familiar tattoo while out in Los Angeles. On his collarbone was a "Harper" tattoo — in honor of his little sister. The fake ink is an exact replica of the real one David got after the birth of his daughter last year.

But there were no fake tattoos in Romeo's stylish Burberry shoot — just trenches and toothy grins.
