BROOKLYN Beckham put on a very loved-up display with Hana Cross this week, as they made their red carpet debut for the premiere of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
But a photo of the pair on the red carpet seems to have attracted attention for all the wrong reasons after fans couldn’t believe the model’s striking resemblance to 20-year-old Brooklyn’s mum, Victoria.
The couple made their red carpet debut this week
Posting an image of his new girlfriend on Instagram, the colour co-ordinated couple looked happy and relaxed on the red carpet at Cannes.
But fans immediately pointed out the resemblance between Hana and Vic, with one cheekily commenting: “[Your] mum looks amazing wow! So sweet, mum and son together on the red carpet.”
And it’s not the first time the 22-year-old model has been compared to Posh, either.
Earlier this year, fans pointed out the brunettes have a similar fashion sense, with one claiming the model “looks like Posh” while another referred to Hana as “[looking] like Brooklyn’s Mommy.”
Fans think Hana looks like Vic
For example, when Victoria wore a camo jacket and dark trousers on a trip to New York in November last year, Hana was wearing the same to the GQ Car Awards in London just weeks later.
Another time, Posh dressed in a low-cut black top paired with dark trousers for a VIP dinner.
Known for her simple but chic style, the trademark VB look was recreated by Hana, who later sported a similar style at London Fashion Week.

If that wasn’t enough, it was reported that the former Spice Girl had even offered to style her son’s girlfriend before she headed off to Coachella in April.
With her loose brunette hair, perfect pout and understated make-up, we have to admit – Hana does look like a young Posh.
But is there a reason why men go for women who are just like their mums?

It might seem odd, but it’s not unusual.
When researchers in Finland analysed the faces of 70 couples, they found startling results.
According to Urszula Marcinkowska, evolutionary psychologist at the University of Turku, researchers found men were likely to partner with someone who “significantly” resembled their mother.
Women on the other hand, showed no signs of ending up with a man who had similarities to their dads.
It’s all to do with natural selection – apparently, it’s human instinct to find a partner from the same “species group”.
Since the earliest contact men have is with their mums, it’s believed she becomes a “template” for future relationships.

TV psychologist Dr Arthur Cassidy, agrees, explaining their are a number of evolutionary reasons why Brooklyn might go for someone like Vic.
“There are sound psychological reasons why Brooklyn is motivated to choose a highly attractive girlfriend like his mum,” Arthur told Fabulous Digital.
“Much of this depends on what we call secure attachment, a bonding process in parent child rearing behaviour.
“Psychologists and scientists have long known that species including birds, mammals and fish select mates with identical features like their mums.
“In humans,the focus is on facial structure – for example, eye shape and lip fullness.
“This is known as positive sexual imprinting. For example, if a goat mother looks after a sheep baby, or a sheep mother looks after a goat baby, then those babies grow up to try to mate with the species of their foster mother, instead of their own.”

“It seems humans also ‘learn’ from our parents in a similar way,” Arthur continued.
“When you ask people to judge the similarities between heterosexual couples and their parents from photos, an amazing picture emerges.
“Men often choose partners who resemble their mothers, but resemblance doesn’t stop at faces – you can also see subtle similarities on average between partner and parent height, hair colour, eye colour, ethnicity and much more.”

But is there another reason why Hana is styling herself on Vic?
Body language expert Judi James thinks it could even be a “smart move” from Hana as a way of “integrating” into the close-knit Beckham clan.
“The way Hana has copied the pout, the poses and the signature styling suggests Hana has moved into Brooklyn’s life and affections by stealth, mirroring his mother Victoria to make the transition almost invisible,” Judi told Fabulous Digital.

Hana is also a fan of the post shower selfie
“Brooklyn’s body language has always defined the closest of loving ties with his mum, but although Hana’s non-verbal mimicry might be flattering, could it also be a smart move in terms of becoming the number one woman in his life?
“Family ties have always been important to Brooklyn and Hana’s behaviour could be a clever move to integrate into a very tight group.
“It’s not unusual for men and women to find partners that resemble their parents and this is often a sign of them having a strong influence in their lives or providing a subliminal ‘ideal’ in terms of how they looked or behaved, or the strength of their own marriage.
“Often the son or daughter is unaware of the similarities until it’s pointed out, which could be exactly what’s happening to Brooklyn right now!”
The pair looked seriously loved up this week
Despite Hana’s resemblance to Vic, Brooklyn doesn’t seem to be listening to other people’s opinions – especially if snaps of them locking lips in the street this week are anything to go by…
