BENTLEY BOYS; EXCLUSIVE Romeo gets his name in gold .. just like big bruv.

Byline: PAUL BYRNE

ROMEO Beckham is having his name hand-stitched into the leather of his dad's pounds 165,000 Bentley.

England captain David has already had three-year-old son Brooklyn's name embroidered in gold on the top-of-the-range Arnage T's upholstery.

But Bentley workers had to patiently await the arrival of the Beckhams' second child on Sunday before finishing work on the luxury vehicle.

The silver car was a 27th birthday present to Becks from wife Victoria last May. David has insisted it is customised to cater for his growing family.

He has had two specially fitted baby seats installed in the back of the 2.5 ton, 170mph car, which is the world's fastest saloon.

And neither Brooklyn nor Romeo will have problems recognising their own seat - their names will be emblazoned across the corn-coloured leather.

Workers at Crewe began putting the finishing touches to the Bentley yesterday hours after 7lb 4oz Romeo's birth.

Becks already has Brooklyn's name tattooed on his back and on the heel of his football boots.

Now he is likely to ask boot manufacturers adidas to add a second name to his footwear.

And he will almost certainly be booking himself into a tattooist's to have Romeo's name added to his body.

A Man Utd insider said: "It will be no surprise to anyone if he strips off in the changing room to reveal Romeo's name stamped on his body."

Brooklyn was beaming yesterday after spending the night at Portland Hospital, London, with mum and day-old brother. Gran Jackie Adams said mother and baby were "fine" after the birth by caesarean.

A BABY gorilla at the Howletts Wild Animal Park near Canterbury is being called Romeo by keepers. One said: "He's a lovely little star, too."
