Nicola Peltz says Brooklyn Beckham felt ‘a lot of pressure’ over career choices

Brooklyn Beckham "didn’t love" having so much focus on his career choices before starting his cooking show, his wife said.

Nicola Peltz, The Bates Motel actress, who wed the eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham in April, shared with Tatler that before her new husband found his footing as a chef, Brooklyn felt “a lot of pressure to please people with his career and he didn’t love it.” As she explained in her August 2022 cover story, “You can tell that when Brooklyn’s in the kitchen he’s in heaven.” 

“Ever since the pandemic, all he’s wanted to talk about is being in the kitchen, so I just started filming him one day,” she said of the 23-year-old, who dabbled in modelling and photography before landing his Facebook Watch series Cookin’ With Brooklyn last year. “Brooklyn is getting into very exciting things with his shows and also business things and it’s really sweet.”

Peltz noted Brooklyn has started reaching out to her father, billionaire businessman Nelson Peltz, for advice. “I watch him call my dad and say, ‘What do you think about this?'” she said. “I love watching him learn from my dad.”

Peltz and Beckham held their wedding in Las Vegas on 9th April 2022. The pair began dating in 2019 and moved quickly, getting engaged in 2020. Looking back at the ceremony, Nicola called it “the best day.” She added, “I just kept thinking, ‘I’m marrying my best friend.’ And that’s all that matters.”
