Fans have called out Victoria Beckham after she posted a picture to Instagram of son Brooklyn Beckham and his fiancée Nicola Peltz which appears to be Photoshopped.

The portrait, which was shared on Tuesday, shows the recently engaged couple posing in front of a sunset, with Beckham kissing Peltz on the cheek.

Initially fans flooded the fashion designer’s comments with praise, though it quickly turned to speculation.

Referencing the fact that Peltz is wearing a midi dress from her new fashion line, Beckham had captioned the picture: “The sweetest couple at sunset @brookynbeckham and @nicolapeltz, looking so amazing in the #VBPAW20 rose print dress!”

Users noted that Peltz had previously shared a near identical photo— except for the background. They suggested that the background had been changed from Peltz's post of the couple in the same pose standing in a city square.

While one Instagram user wrote: “That’s cute… but what’s with the photoshop? it’s still beautiful” [Sic]

Another pointed out that the apparently edited location made it look “like they’re walking on water”.

The 43-year-old has not yet responded to the speculation.

When Peltz posted the photo with the same pose earlier in the week she had simple captioned it “baby b”.

The couple became engaged last month, with the actress's diamond engagement ring worth a reported £300K.

21-year-old Beckham shared the news alongside a photo taken by his younger sister Harper Beckham.

“Two weeks ago I asked my soulmate to marry me and she said yes,” he wrote in the caption.

“I am the luckiest man in the world. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day. I love you baby xx.”

The couple have been in a relationship for around nine months and returned to the UK earlier this summer after spending lockdown together in New York.
