It's been just over a week since his son Brooklyn Beckham's lavish nuptials to Nicola Peltz and father of the groom, David Beckham has been doing some post-wedding winding down by, er, swimming with sharks.

Beckham, 46, and youngest son, Cruz, 17, waded into the crystal clear Miami waters to paddle with the sea creatures.

The father/son duo both went shirtless as they paddled in the shallows with the sharks swimming around them, with dad Beckham wearing bright red shorts, while his son chose Supreme green shorts for the weekend swim.

David Beckham later nervously joked that he should have opted for a different colour: “I think I wore the wrong colour shorts,” he quipped on Instagram.

Aspiring singer, Cruz, shared the incredible images of the shark swim with his 1.9 million Instagram followers, captioning them simply with the shark emoji.

Meanwhile Victoria Beckham admitted she'd been reminded of a night she’d probably rather forget courtesy of her husband's birthday card.

The card featured a picture from a previous night the designer enjoyed, showing her lying on the floor next to a toilet.

The mum-of-four shared a snap of the tongue-in-cheek card with her followers as she also confirmed that it was her who’d had a “sleepover with the toilet”.

“Yes this is me!” she wrote on her Instagram Story.

“I love my birthday card @davidbeckham.”

The former Spice Girl also marked her birthday with a throwback to her early days, posting a photo from her ninth birthday to Instagram, writing: “Feels like yesterday!”

“Feeling like a very blessed and loved mummy today on my birthday. I love you so much Harper Seven,” she captioned the post.
