It now seems that The Notorious' popularity with the rich and famous runs in the family after former footballer David Beckham posted a comment under a picture of Conor McGregor Jr on Instagram.

The one-year-old's dad posted a picture of him chilling on a sofa in a dressing gown alongside the message 'Great work today my son, I love you with all my soul.' Many people commented on how the pair are the image of each other and it seems Beckham was in agreement, typing the words 'Just like dad'.
