The Beckhams were forced to cancel son Romeo’s 18th birthday celebrations following their coronavirus battle, reports say.

It was recently said that both David and Victoria contracted the deadly bag amid back-and-forth flights to the States before lockdown restrictions went into place.

The pair are said to have made a full recovery in their Cotswolds home, Victoria implementing strict isolation rules for the family.

Last weekend, the parents opted to call off second son Romeo’s 18th, The Sun reports.

The publication writes that the family made the decision after becoming worried social distancing measures wouldn’t be maintained at the party.

David and Victoria are thought to have caught coronavirus in Los Angeles, where they mixed with A-listers at a string of high-profile events.

David launched his new football club, Inter Miami, at the beginning of March.

“David was on duty for his club Inter Miami, and Victoria and the family flew down to support him,” an insider close to the family explained.

“They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries.

“They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion.”

They described it as an “absolute nightmare scenario”, with Victoria fearing they were “super-spreaders.”

They celebrated eldest lad Brooklyn’s 21st, the source added, before another, shorter trip to the US.

Upon their return, the insider went on that David started to feel unwell while Victoria had a sore throat and temperature.

Several of those around them – like bodyguards, drivers and assistants – complained of feeling unwell as well.

Victoria wasn’t taking any chances and “made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks.

“She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimise all future risk.”

And after they’d made their full recoveries, Posh and Becks made sure to check in on their team and send them care packages.

Ahead of their Greece and Italy trips over the summer, the pair are said to have made sure to receive swab and antibody tests to ensure travel wasn’t a risk.
